  • RPU top measurement needed

    I would like someone with a 28-9 roadster pickup to measure the distance from the top of the door to the highest point of the top. Thank you.

    1928-1929 Open Cab TOP parts
    by Steve Plucker
    What is meant by the following parts associated with the 1928-mid 1930 Open Cab Top:

    1. A-42330 Container (Top Curtain) Assy? Would this be the "container" that contained the Side Curtains for Open Cars?

    2. A-77765 Deck (top) Assembly? Would this be the material that is on the very top of the roof?

    3. A-37544 Strainer (Top Back Curtain) ?

    '29 RPU top irons.
    by Beauford
    So just trying to get top in order while waiting on DMV. It seems my rear most iron is really wide to connect to the points behind the doors.(the ears?) Do you flex these to fit? It has the wood piece in the middle. Of course no instructions...

    Need pics of 28 roadster top on car.
    by MickyDC
    Need pictures of a 28 roadster top and irons on car. This is needed for my upholsterer to guide him. Its been a few years since he has done a 28, and I want mine to look original since I will have my original top irons and wood in a couple of days for him.

    Roadster Top Upholstery
    by 40B1930
    The top material on my 40b got soaked a few years ago and left ugly orange color stains on both sides of the rear window. I tried removing them with no success. Im wanting to replace the top and have the bows checked for correct fit and alignment. Would there be a company or individual that offers to do this work professionally? I am wanting a good job of it. Thanks for any recommendations and guidance!...

    Sport coupe Top
    by carolinamudwalker
    Ok, I probably am not using the search option properly. (whats new) Could not find anything on replacing the top on a sport coup. My question is: Can the outer fabric be replaced without removing the entire top?

    Top Frame Repair for Model A Roadster Pickup
    by blong7913
    I am restoring a 29 Model A Roadster Pickup and I need some help on restoring the steel frame for the top. I have all of the steel which appears to be repairable but there are a couple things I can't identify. The horizontal steel (forms the square frame for the top) is made up of "C" shaped steel and the internal part is filled with something that is used to drive the tacks into to hold...

    New top install on a 1929 Model A Ford Leatherback Briggs 60B
    by Ken Harvey
    I am deciding if I should install a new top since the front half of the top is already pull back for a header and door post install.

    Can I install a new top without taking out and ruining the new inside upholstery around the rear window?? Pics attached

    I believe the top is cut in around the window and folded inside the car to be tacked down.

    The old top is in...

    Putting a new Top on a Cabriolet
    by Atlasboy
    I can’t find a local Convertible Top installer , so I think I will put a new Top on my Model A Cabriolet myself.
    The present Top was installed in 1950 according to the former owner of the Car, and it is well fitted but it is also in need of replacement.
    I did install a new Top on a Model A Roadster some years ago and it did turn out very well so I do have some experience.
