    hardtop identification

    It has the wing side windows and is not rounded and is steel. It did have rust as described but my husband has repaired all of that. I know they are valuable but have had no interest in putting it on my car. It has no lining/headliner in it yet but it is primed.

    no fire coming out of coil

    we had a short and we were going to change to negative but decided against it. My car is finally running again. Had to replace distributor cap and rotor. Also had the generator rebuilt. So with all the new parts I should be all set for a while. Thanks to everyone for your help as usual.

    no fire coming out of coil

    yes my son has one and bring it over. Do we have to have a special coil....we used a regular coil that was on the car I believe when we changed to the electronic ignition. Nothing special just a 12 volt. Somewhere we read it needs to have 3 oms not sure of spelling is that a special coil

    change from positive ground to negative

    anyone done this to their sunbeam alpine. Change the car from positive to negative ground. Is there anything other than the amp gauge that you have to consider. I know the battery but wondering if there is something else.
