1963 catatlina convertible top

Recommended Posts

Is there anyone out there that has a 61 to 64 convertible? I just purchased a top from the convertible top guys, NOT SOMEONE i WOULD RECOMMEND. The rear window curtain is cut a couple of inches shorter than the one that came off and they are telling me that if I attach it at the silver line it will work. now if you have 15 inches from point a to point b and 13 inches of material it will not stretch no matter how you attach it to the rear trim stick. Also the listing for the second top bow is not in the right place and they are telling me that some of those tops did not have any connection to the second top bow. I have had several convertibles of both domestic and foreign manufacture and have never had one that did not have some kind of attachment at the second top bow. Without that attachment there is no way to keep the top from ballooning at highway speeds. I need to know if there is anyone out there that has seen an early 60's vintage Pontiac without an attachment to the second top bow.

Post script to anyone that may be looking for the final answer. That answer is to buy a Robbins top. It goes on and fits right. The staple lines are in the right place and when installed according to instruction it works right.
