New Top Needed for '59 Convertible D.
Long time club member needs some help - My '59 Convertible D needs some TLC!
Looking for good experiences buying and installing a fresh convertible top for my '59 Convertible
D. This project is really driven by the yellowed, hardened rear window that gave up and broke
up last time I lowered the top.
I've had the car with the same top for over 22 years. Altho working ok, the top mechanism could
probably use a little tuning and tweaking.
I live NW of Chicago area (Hawthorn Woods) and appreciate good resources for a quick, accurate
delivery of a fresh top, and experiences with installation.
Thank you in advance,

For Sale: Drum Brake Wheels
4 Brazilian 356 drum brake wheels, 5.5 X 15, dechromed and painted silver by
Chicago Wheel. Never mounted. $700.
I have a set of front and rear seats available from my 1965 356. The
seats include everything for the front and rear except for the mounting
hardware and headrest brackets for the front seats. Other than
that they are complete and ready to be installed. There is some
visible wear to the seats but overall I would rate them as good
condition. The chrome is a little pitted but shines up well and
the only major imperfection is a hole in the base of one seat but when
the seat is installed it isn't noticeable. If you would like
additional photos I have plenty please contact me.
For Sale - $5,500.00
Shipping - $150.00
