Be warned that NOS tops and covers may sound enticing but they most
likely shrank over the last 30-50 years stored in a box somewhere.
I bought an NOS Amco top for my 67 Sprite, new in the box and dated
1980. Well after much stretching and heating, I got it installed the
next day the vinyl was ripped in 2 spots, the stitching was giving out
all over, and it was just about impossible to raise and snap it.
Now I have a new top, not NOS.
I also have a real problem with the original tonneau from that car. All
the snaps are there, no head rests and it came with the car but it just
doesn't fit like it did in 1967. I can not get the windshield snaps on
not the last snap nearest the doors.
I have seen some new ones, pricey and cheap looking.
I had one made for my Bugeye from a local shop, cheaper that the
catalogs, any color I wanted, they fit it to the car as they made it and
no more water pockets like the original that puddled the rain until it
ran in along the doors.
