Important Information

Original Factory Color(s): Black and Tan

The tops on this page are for the XK120 and XK140 drop head coupes. These tops are attached, with tacks or staples to numerous wood tacking bows and forms which are affixed to the frame and body.

If your car is a roadster there are tacks only up front, at the windshield. Roadster tops are listed separately. Please be sure yours is a drop head coupe and not the roadster.

Original top fabric was a cotton canvas cloth and pinpoint vinyl.

We are Jaguar specialists. We have offered replacement wood top bows for over thirty years. They are sturdy and fine fitting reproductions of the original tacking wood. Although the 120 and the 140 take identical tops there is some detailing difference on the body and some of the wood bows differ slightly. Please order the appropriate wood bows according to your car. the wood bows are listed as 'accessories' below.

These tops are offered in black or in tan Haartz stayfast canvas with black inside lining. The top has a zippered clear vinyl rear window. If you are attaching a headliner it must be custom made for you; it is not part of the top.

CONVERTIBLE TOP FABRICS
Almost all manufacturers use Haartz fabrics. They may specify "heaviest weight" or "original replacement" in ways that seem reassuring. But they do not really tell the whole story. Please bear in mind that two things dominate, by far, the quality issue: (a) the manufacturing quality control in the factory that makes the top and (b) the care and thoroughness of the installation. There is a trade-off in weight: heavier is better for resisting tear through, but lighter is better for flexibility and abrasion from within that may arise from movement. Almost all our tops are a flexible medium density (36 oz.) fabric. Heavier is not better in most cases. Where it is, because of the top design, we will say so and the top will be made of the heavier vinyl.
