Looking for a rag clip or entire roof w/a ragtop for my '63. Anyone know where I can find one?

Thanks for the lead, I was hoping to find one locally if possible, plus that seems like a high price...or am I wrong?

it looks like all the bits are there, and the really good part of that clip is the fact that it has the front windshield frame area, makes it much easier to graft in.

price being high is subjective and probably negotiable. cash talks and if the market isn't as robust as it has been (remember, seattle has been getting killed with lay-off's etc) then you might be able to dicker.

Phone calls and emails are cheap, give them a ring and see what you can do.

I talked to him, he's pretty firm on the price, thanks for the link though. It looks like a nice clip, just not worth the drive or the money.

yeah, that's something I didn't even think about, the time and money to get it. you made the right choice walking. If you have time, just wait, they pop up time to time.

yeah, you have a point but 650.00 and a 4 hr. drive seems like alot. I'll probably hold out until I find one, guess my hardtop does the job for now...if anyone hears about one though let me know.

I ended up getting the guy on craigslist to come down on the price but I spent the $ on discs for the car instead. He's offering 575 picked up or 650 shipped; not bad for a whroof and rag assy. Just thought I'd let you guys know if anyone else was interested.
