Important Information

Our tops are made, as originally, with a main plastic rear window and the pair of side/rear windows.

Windows:
We recommend the top with the sealed in rear (center) window as it is longer wearing and easier to utilize. For those who wish to have the top up and the rear window able to lower, we do offer the top with the zippered center window. The zipper window top is not original. It is an aftermarket modified top.

Original Fabric:
The American made Colonial Vinyl mimics the original British leather grained vinyl that was used in these tops. Most original tops were black but these tops can also be ordered in white as well. For a greater assortment of colors please check our Haartz Pinpoint vinyl tops.

Canvas Tops:
Haartz Stayfast canvas is the longest wearing fabric owing to its butyl rubber central core (between the inner and outer layers.)

1970 Owners:
Certain 1970 tops are fastened with rivets at the front. These are the earliest 1970 models and you should shop at the "1967-70 tops" for those.

Installation Manual:
We have found that most of our customers are installing their own tops. You may check off the install manual if you are ordering a top and will be doing the installation. The manual is listed under "accessories."

This top has velcro on the rear quarter sections and fastens to the body below the rear center window with 6 tenax fasteners.

Boots:
We offer a boot for your top, and also a separate boot storage bag. Please select either a black boot or else a boot in another color. Boots are listed with "accessories."

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.
