You missed it on an earlier thread. Have an original top.
Hardware is the hard part. New hardware is different than they had in the day.
Have to have a couple small tears fixed. Worth it for 50 year old top.

Robbins does make a great top.
Would've been my choice if I needed another top.

Yeah
Fortunately the California guys have old tops as they are
rarely used.

Hook up oil and water temp
Hook up speedo
Get fuel gage reading
Fit top
Stop a couple leaks
Then done...........

Then maybe a new thread with 289 #2. Hmmmmm

Don't you dare. You have nothing to be jealous about. Your car is equally as good.

The car looks great Jeff. Are you going to be able to see out of that windshield - it looks like the inspection sticker is covering most of it

Personally, I like the comp look of the stamped covers. They go well with Webers too.

It's a comp car, in my opinion I think the stamped valve covers win.

For your car - since it is more of a comp car - I would say the stamped. If you make it more into a street car, then cast.
