I just finished putting new windows and seals all round in a factory hard
top that came with our 67B. This hardtop was purchased with the 67 and I
drove it back to Missouri from Seattle. On the way back from Seattle, the
hardtop leaked a little and lacked the side locating brackets, but
everything else seemed to be fine.  I fitted new parts to it so I could put
it on the 79B for the Missouri winters. It does not fit the 79. The windows
have at least a half inch gap at the top before they would touch the seals.
I turned the header seal around and still had the same problem. I even
pulled the new header seal clear off and clamped the hardtop to the
windshield, and it still has a huge gap at the window tops.
Were the factory hardtops designed to fit the early B's but not the rubber
bumpers? I didn't think there was any difference between the bodies of the
two cars.
