Hello everybody, I was gifted a hard top a few years back but I have never been able to identify it. I wonder if anyone here will know what it is.




It sure looks tiny on top of that american steel.

It has the look of a 62-70 Spitfire hardtop. More information may help. Is it steel or fiberglass/plastic? Is the window glass or plastic? Kyle.

I'm with Kyle, pretty sure he is right, regardless of the material.

The top is made of steel and the window is glass.

It does look like a factory steel top for a roundtail Spitfire. Intact glass is a definite plus as the glass in these has (over the decades) undergone a molecular change into that mysterious substance known as unobtainium. Also good to have are the intact headliner bows. While the top may be adapted to fit any roundtail Spitfire - look to see what mounting hardware it has along the sides where it would attach near the B-post; downward pointing ‘male’ attachments would be for a Spitfire Mk1 or Mk2, while ‘female’ attachments would be for a Mk3 Spit.

I suppose it could be, it doesn't fit my car. I feel like I am a long ways away from you. It would be a shame to see it bent and shattered shipping it under a bus and I expect that fedex will cost more than the price.
Having said that, I guess I would want $250 for it.
