    While I posted info on a vinyl top supplier, you might search for a carriage roof company. I seem to recall several companies offering these years ago. They might also be listed under coach builders.

    Thanks KevinK; getting the top itself done isn't an issue; I have used a resto shop in Denver NC for my Mustangs and they could do this no problem. The bigger issue is locating the parts we would need such as the bright moldings for the A pillars and the trim around the inside of the rear window (which they could probably fabricate). But I also need a nice 80 - 82 hardtop first!

    Does anyone here currently own, or know someone who currently owns, a 1980, 1981, or 1982 carriage roof Mustang, with the carriage roof still on the car?

    So no one on here has a 80 - 82 carriage roof Mustang, or knows of someone who does?

    Carriage Roof Mustang coupes are one of my all time favorites. I actually looked at one back in 1981, but it was not to be. They're getting hard to find. Either they are in excellent condition and the owner won't part with it, or the top needs replacing and people strip it back to being a standard hardtop. If I could find one close by...

    The do look sharp on these cars. Could even add a air roof.
    Looks better than the odd looking vinyl top option by covering up the coupe side louvers.
    Auto trim shops replace simulated and real conv tops, vinyl all the time. Same as adding one?
    Canvas vs vinyl grain material. Plus any special trim.
