I can appreciate that having a repop top would give you ulcers, so here's hoping somebody comes through with some info on some NOS stuff.
F8 is my favorite color so I can hardly wait to see the finished car!

YELLOW MOD TOP VINYL
Maybe you should also try get in touch with http://www.smsautofabrics.com/ .........They just may have what your after. But let us know how you go with them and give http://www.nationalmoparts.com/index.ihtml (Canada) a try aswell. I have found them to have a lot of NOS stuff !



I've delt with them a couple times (not that far from me) and they were helpful. I agree, try there.




I HAVE SPOKEN TO EVERY TRIM SHOP AND DEALER AROUND. SMS WAS VERY HELPFUL. THIS MAY SOUND NUTS BUT MANY OF YOU KNOW THAT I SPENT YEARS HITTING OLD DEALERSHIPS LOOKING FOR SIGNS AND PARTS. I FOUND THE GUY WHO ONLY HIT OLD TRIM SHOPS BUYING OLD OEM MATERIAL. HE SOLD ME THE BLUE MATERIAL HE HAD BUT HE NEVER HAD THE YELLOW. THE PROBLEM IS THAT WHEN HE FOUND THE BLUE IT WAS IN THE NON-AUTOMOTIVE SECTION OF A SHOP. UNLESS AN OLD TIMER IS AROUND ANYONE TODAY WHO SEES THAT YELLOW FLORAL WILL PUT IT IN THE OLD LADY KITHCHEN CHAIR PILE. LATER TODAY I WILL POST WHATS ON THE TAGS OF THE CAR. IN EARLY OCT I WILL HAVE PICS OF THE CAR PAINTED (IF ANYONE CARES). WE CANT PUT THE TOP ON YET AS THERES SOME ISSUES WITH THE GLASS.

Do any of you guys with the NOS stuff happen to have any of the Dodge mod-top/ green floral material. I'm in the middle of a 69 383 GTS resto and I haven't had any luck finding material yet. Thanks in advance! oojhnoo@aol.com

john i dont know of one but that doesnt mean it does not exist. ive been out of the mopar loop for a while now.

the laysons material is ok, just ok. the color is very good as is the floral print. the problem is in the black lines. laysons is very heavy while the orig was a simple outline. maybe i will let my top bake in the california sun and hope it fades.

Do you say chase up because of your hemisphere, around here we say chase down. But either way, I don't think I own anything that can chase down or up a 6 pack car!

Your thinking with the wrong attitude, Its not just in regards to what Hemishere i live in, but more of what Hemishere is on top of my Big Block Mopar ! Chin up..... more cubes and multiple carbs and your in the running...

Hello boys,
my questions is a bit off-topic from your noble quest for factory made cars, but I'd like to know what color combinations were used on Mod Top cars - I know of Blue top/B5 Satellites, Yellow top/Yellow Barracudas and Green/Green Dodges, but I also saw the white-with-blue-top Satellite mentioned somewhere. Are there any more combinations? Does anyone make reproductions of Mod Top material? Or is it possible to find a really good resolution picture of the pattern?

I have a non-Mod Top car (in fact, it's even '68), and I don't care too much about exact corectness (will be a clone/restomod anyway), but I love the Mod Tops and would like to get one on my car. I was thinking about either B5 car with Blue top, or making a custom Mod Top to match QQ-5 turquoise...

Well you can jump on to the Mod Top registry and have a look at some different colors on their. You will be able to get some color Mod Top material from Laysons, It is not exact but perfect for what you want to acheive, will look real cool too. Post pics when you have done it.

I agree, that site probably has the availability. I want to buy an A4 Satellite Mod Top if I ever come across one.

what color Mod Top would you have on your A4 Satellite...... My Favourite would be the Black on Black with Blue Mod Top 70 'Cuda that Karl Smith owns........... Something about the color combo just appeals to me.......I can visualize it....... in my garage - I WISH !
