    Shame you’re in LA. I’d like to buy your hard top but it would be a pain to ship.

    A few years back the freight charge for shipping a hard top by common carrier from the west coast to Ohio was over $400.00. The pallet had a plywood box built around it to protect the top. Shipping the top by truck freight on an open pallet would probably result in a lot of unwanted damage.

    I probably would not have shipped a hardtop on an open palette. Rather I would sandwich it between two pallets with sides. It's up to the shipper, but I have sent doors and windshield frames and other things to England simply by taking them to the shipper who took care of everything.
    You get what you pay for. I've bought a lot of things they got shipped by United Parcel Smashers and FedEx that looked like on arrival they were on the plane from the movie castaway.

    Hard tops are available for $500 to $700 pretty easily but you don't get a lot of clean straight metal on those tops plus you don't get the complete top the rear window trim the part that hold the headliner in the front the headliner bows and all of the hardware. The hardware is in driver condition and everyone knows you can spend way more on the chrome parts then the whole damn hardtop, that's why some nice chrome pieces sell for what they do on eBay. although taking pictures of chrome parts on eBay is like taking pictures of anything for sale they always look better in pictures. If you're not from Southern California, a hardtop is a really needed item. I have 3 now and I only have one raincoat and one set of foul weather gear for when I go sailing.

    The soft-top is black it has some very slight water stain looking spots that don't come off.
    It is a JC Whitney item and I'd be happy with a hundred bucks for it.

    I also have a set of project traction bars weld on and bolt on . I'm putting things together here and I will be responding to the private messages that I have received. If you are interested please send your phone number and I'll call you back or text you pictures of whatever you want.

    Dash pad and shocks the rear say made by Gabriel and both probably came from JC Whitney. The fronts are Sears and the box was un opened until today. I'm not sure they'll fit an Alpine but the fellow said he had an Alpine as well.
    Things are what they are. Look at the pictures ask questions and we'll talk about it.

    Thanks Dan after a lifetime in sales I can still spell customer service. These parts came with a really nice car that fell into the hands of a let's say frugal person. It seems they were purchased form J.C. Whitney which a crap shoot on overall quality and of course the miracle water injector for increased fuel mileage, and engine rebuild pills to stop smoking etc. Luckily Jack Benny only had car running for 500 miles. He gave up when the 87 smog rules required a NOX device. I could go back and get the water injection system as a gag gift and classic automotive snake oil memorabilia :)

    The upper picture would work on the rear they are the same as F100 Ford pickup, the smaller shocks would work but you would have to cut the metal bushing flush with the rubber bush in the lower half of the shock.

    I believe everything is spoken for some things twice, things going to those first in line and those who kept the line of communication active. The hard top is still available as the prospect I have has several rusty hard tops with lots of good parts but no clean shell. Same story different Sunbeam owner. I had to go thru 7 tops each time getting a better one and selling off the lesser rust lightened model. renewed ad below

    Soft top worked out well Warren - thanks. As you mentioned, it's J.C. Whitney from 1986 as indicated by the original postage on the box. It fits pretty well and should work just fine for those occasions when needed.

    Practice makes perfect. I know an owner who put one on his car himself. His first try he used a brand new canvas one and cut it too short.
