Chrysler Lebaron convertibles were manufactured from 1982 to 1995. In 1996 the Sebring was introduced as a replacement and the Lebaron eliminated. Lebaron convertible tops are classic two part tops. The main top and the rear window section (called the "curtain" in the trade) are integrated during the installation process. We offer a manual on classic two part top installation. We also offer specific manuals for Chrysler Lebaron convertible top installation.
Our LeBaron Convertible Tops
Chrysler Lebaron convertibles originally were fabricated in pinpoint vinyl. In 1990 Chrysler introduced its Chrysler Sailcloth vinyl. We offer Lebaron tops in both fabrics. We can also supply Haartz Stayfast canvas Lebaron convertible tops.
We offer tack strips, pads, hold down cables, headliners according to what was original equipment.
Special package offerings are available for full restoration which contain tops, cables, tacking strips, etc.

INSTALLATION MANUALS FOR CHRYSLER LEBARON CONVERTIBLE TOPS
Two Part Tops: Can I Install Myself?
We offer a profusely illustrated convertible top manual, now in its fourth edition. This covers, in detail, all the steps for do-it-yourself convertible top installation. In particular, the manual applies to these cars which all have a two part convertible top. Owners may purchase the manual to review it before purchasing a convertible top package. We would then pro-rate future purchase of the convertible top when it is ordered.
If you can use an air compressor driven staple gun, and are patient and methodical, you are very likely to be able to install any of these convertible tops. The convertible top packages include everything needed in most cases. (Convertible top frame seals must be ordered separately if required.)
Note that there is no sewing involved in installing a two part convertible top. There is stapling and there is manipulation of the top fabric which in places is applied with contact cement. Our convertible top packages include stainless steel staples and the very best grade of contact cement with brush. Please click the link to your convertible top page for more information.
We now stock hydraulic cylinders, motor-pumps, and hoses for your convertible tops. All are made to OEM specifications. Each can be ordered separately; however, when ordering hydraulic cylinders we recommend replacing both. The chances are that both hydraulic cylinders were manufactured at the same time: if one is on its way out the other may follow. If the top is raised and one hydraulic cylinder is working harder than the other the result over time can lead to a slightly bent convertible top frame. The replacement of both hydraulic cylinders will ensure that the top raises and lowers symmetrically.
Systems for this car take Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) and have a 5 year warranty when used with this fluid. Brake fluid should not be used as it voids the warranty. We also offer an installation manual when ordered.
The 12 volt motor-pumps include a mounting bracket with rubber grommets to reduce vibration.
