Important Information

Original Factory Color(s): Black, Tan and Light Neutral

The tops on this page will fit Datsun roadsters late 1967 through 1969 with serial numbers and design as follows:

Factory style 1 piece Top with 3 Plastic Windows. Top frame has 2 front Top latches. Fits 1600 SPL311 VIN # 17001 to 27000 & 2000 SRL311 VIN # 01001 to 13000

Fastening Kit: Comes with the top but are not installed. It consists of 10 caps, sockets, eyelets, wheels and 6 common sense fasteners and 8 lift-a-dot fasteners.

Fabrics: The original top fabric was a black cotton cloth closely matched by our Haartz Stayfast canvas. The Haartz pinpoint vinyl is a less expensive topping and easier to keep clean.

Colors: Original tops were black. If you wish another color, or to confirm that you wish a black top, please specify your color choice in the checkout message box. You can view alternative colors via the links (blue above) to our fabric scans. Please jot down your color choice so that you can tell us when you are checking out.

These tops are made with sewn in pads and original rear window configuration.

Hold Down Cables: A cable on each side of the top (embedded in the cable pocket) holds the top to the frame front and rear. We recommend new cables with each top. New cables are listed with "accessories" below.

Boots: Although original boot fabric was pinpoint vinyl, we suggest that you select your boot made of one of the modern slightly flexible boot vinyls. We have scanned color swatches at the boot fabric (blue link) link below.

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.
