Default Classic Roadsters Cobra Hardtop Moulds

Here’s a new photo of the Cobra hardtop moulds. Robert Haugen of Roseburg, Oregon has the Classic Roadsters Cobra hardtop moulds. He bought them from Ryan in Canada. His phone number is 541-530-0124. He also has the Sebring moulds and is a Sebring guy. He welcomes all calls and is trying to log back into Club Cobra now. Here are pictures of a Sebring hood and a Sebring LS1.

I'll never understand the efforts to make a hard top look like a soft top with molded-in bow lines etc. It's just like the absolutely ridiculous vinyl roof craze in the 70's and 80's - make believe fake convertibles no less!
Blatantly "faux" stuff just doesn't go well with the purely functional aesthetic of a Cobra. Without the fake, angular bow lines and a more rounded profile, it would actually be a nice looking top.

I agree Buzz, never could understand that either. I'd go with a Mr. Bruce LeMans top any day. But then to each his own. Cheers My Friend, TommyRot.

I agree I like the Lemans tons better, and not a fan of the fake bow either. However it is a an option we didn't have, plus it's original to the car, and not half the country away. I doubt it that it shouldn't be too hard for him to modify to make three versions from his original. Original, bow less and Lemans, as he already has the correct dimensions.

Please call Robert Haugen for info on Cobra hard tops. 541-530-0124. Robert is the owner of Monarch Custom Cabinetry and invites you to check out his Facebook page and website. He has been discussing this on the Austin Healey Sebring forums for years and finally made it happen

Digging around about "Excalibur" cars, in another post interesting fact from them according to "Ohekk" here on CC. "Two were sold with the hard top option, and my "Last One" makes three." Wounder if that is where these moulds are from, or Classic?

These came from Ryan in Canada. They are the real moulds that came from Classic Roadsters. The top on the blue Cobra in photo was made in this mould. You can see on the letter I scribbled $3500 for 2 that’s what price was when I called in 1991. You can see in the photos he has all the Sebring moulds. He can be reached at 541-530-0124.

$1500 is what Robert Haugen told me. He is logged in but can’t post or reply??? Ive talked to him about tops and he is just now starting to do anything with them. Im reasonably sure these fit Excalibur’s too. This is the real deal Classic Roadster top mould, I told him I would RV roadtrip to his shop and work for free to get a few made. He’s really a Sebring guy and has been on that forum for years and now has all the Sebring moulds

Awesome. I guess this is who Ryan was referring to when I talked to him. Still waiting on a reply from him about some possible softtop options and i assume Roberts number (which I now have thanks to you).

I will give him a call when I get back (most likley will be over the weekend but will leave a message with him). Hopefully I can confirm costs and get one of these ordered. $1500 was right about at the maximum I would want to be at as I will be shipping internationally (unless you want to pick it up and haul it up for me as you mentioned you were road tripping around)?

Ill give him a shout tho. Thanks for getting the details and providing them to the community.

Iím glad we have them in the USA. Iím headed your way when Canada opens up. He said about $1500. They were $1750 from CR. Itís all new, its at Monarch Custom Cabinetry looks like a positive move in the Classic Roadsters world. The Sebring is back...

Sounds good. I will chat with him and see about his availability and shipping costs. Does anyone have a manual for the installation of the hardtop?

Thanks sunman.. I have been in touch with Robert. I have gone ahead and told him I will take one (not sure when he will get around to making it).. Also trying to figure out how I am going to get it but depends a lot on the boarder situation..

Does anyone have a manual or additional pictures showing the installation of the hardtop? Any additional items required? I'm assuming there is some install manual for the few hardtop ordered from Cr.. Robert doesn't have any of this info and hasn't seen a Cr in thr flesh to know exactly what is required..

Thanks
