Wood Top Bows Convertible Tops and Convertible Top Parts
The early convertible top frames required that the convertible top be tacked to wooden bows. The frame bows were called wood top bows. American convertibles eliminated wood top bows by the fifties. European convertibles retained the wood top bow approach through seventies Volkswagens and Mercedes. Rolls Royce convertibles are still made to be topped with convertible top wood bows.
Wood bows are made for windshield, the bow over the rear window, to receive the rear base line tacks and to receive tacks in the rear side quarter section. Many convertibles, such as the Jaguar drop head coupes, had numerous other wood tacking forms.
Our shop has been in operation since 1974, manufacturing automotive wood products, in particular wood top bows for classic convertible cars. We use state of the art vacuum bag techniques to laminate layers of wood, utilizing modern marine adhesives to produce wood bows that are (when required to be bent) more sturdy and longer lasting than the originals. All wood bows are detailed like original to fit properly.
