Don' t know why it wouldn't work, unless the position of the chrome clips 
and studs on the rear deck are radically different, which I doubt since 
my pal's '69 folding-top tonneau fits my packaway '66. You would need the 
sockets in the rear cockpit (unless they are already there for the short 
tonneau bar?), and I'm not sure about the little hook-type clips that go 
outside near the top rear edge of the door opening (whether your car has 
them or not).

>From recent posts it sounds like you'll find a buyer for your top and 
frame if you decide to get rid of it..Maybe you can swap?

Runs great, 
looks particularly bad since some SUV clown backed into it.
If you're near Mountain View, CA,
it's the red one with the silver bootlid.
