Quick hardtop question...

Post by harpdevice » Sun Jul 28, 2019 8:53 pm

Hello,

Will a Snugtop from a 1982 Spider fit a 1971?
I've googled this but find conflicting results.
Here's a pic...it's not near enough to try it on.

Thanks,
Kevin

I'm fairly certain the Snugtop fit all of the model years, I don't see why it wouldn't as the Spider frame and body didn't change, only the top bow changed in late 78. A quick review of photos shows the same top on Spiders from 69 - 82.

I think here or on fs someone posted the pininfarina top, which frankly would be the better candidate to restore if that is what you want to do.

Thanks for the info.
I do like the pininfarina top more than the snugtop.
Do you know of anyone out there that is selling a decent one?

Personally no. Google is your friend.
