Important Information

Original Factory Color(s): Black, Blue, Brown and Tan

Top Fabrics: Convertible tops for these models, until 1970 were made of a cotton rayon cloth which is now obsolete. The finest fabric currently manufactured for convertible tops is German Sonnenland canvas. We have scanned swatches of the three canvas toppings: German Sonnenland, Sonnendeck (Twillfast) and Haartz Stayfast canvas. The three are hardly discernible but the manufacturing processes differ such that there is an approximately 10% wear rating difference between German and Sonnendeck and also between Sonnendeck and Stayfast.

113 Chassis: The tops on this page are intended for these models which are "113" chassis Mercedes. These all feature a single rear window. (Later tops had three plastic windows.)

The Wood Bow: There is a wood bow spanning the top frame, under the top, above the back window. This bow must be checked for structural integrity before restoration proceeds. It must accept numerous staples or tacks, and support the back section of the top. The wood bow that we carry is an accurate sturdy reproduction of the original. There are on the market rear top wood bows cut from a single piece of wood rendering it susceptible to cracking because of bad grain direction near the corners.

Count Listings: There were two top frames utilized: ones with three cross bows and ones with four cross bows. The count includes the wood bow above the rear window. Please count the number of bows. We will send you a top with one "listing" (bow attachment flap) for each bow on your frame. Most cars will have four such bows; some have three.

Vinyl Tops: Our Haartz pinpoint vinyl tops are made to original patterns. This vinyl is less expensive than the canvas toppings. It carries the same five year warranty but cannot be expected to last as long as a canvas 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.
