Important Information

Original Factory Color(s): Black

About the 1980-1983 Toyota Sunchaser:
Toyota, working in conjunction with the Griffith conversion factory, retrofitted approximately 2000 Toyota Celicas into dealer convertibles called "Sunchaser." To verify that you have a dealer 1980-1983 Toyota Sunchaser, please check inside your glove box for the "Griffith Griffin Sunchaser" emblem.

We have tops with either a single or with three windows sewn in. Both are made to original dealer patterns.

Original Fabric:The tops are available in Haartz pinpoint vinyl in black and also a variety of other colors. Black was the original color, as far as we can determine, on all dealer convertibles.

Haartz Pinpoint Vinyl�s design is original to most American cars from the fifties to the nineties. Pinpoint refers to the little dots or pips that you see if you look closely at the vinyl surface. European cars, such as the old Beetles and others also used pinpoint vinyl as the topping fabric.

Alternate Fabric:We are now pleased to offer this top in Haartz stayfast canvas.

Haartz Stayfast Canvas has a canvas outer layer and a preshrunk cotton inner layer. The two are bonded with and separated by a butyl rubber core. It is this core that makes the fabric last a very long time, with both better static and dynamic wear ratings than vinyl toppings. Haartz Stayfast is the American substitute for the German canvases used in Mercedes, Porsche, BMW, some models of Mustang and Lebaron and others. Canvas is widely regarded as "richer looking" than vinyl. It is a little harder to clean. The inside of the top is pre-shrunk cotton. The inner lining is usually black. If you do not see a canvas top listed for your car, please inquire and we will provide a quotation for it.

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.
