Fall and cooler weather is coming soon, so it is time to get your growling baby covered with a soft top. You don't want it to get wet, do you?
I have an uninstalled top that I bought from another member who had started to have it installed. Most of the quick snaps have been installed on the lower back edge of the top. [Also the bottom of the bows have been cut off and an Allen head bolt welded on.>>DISREGARD per Dave's comment below] Otherwise it looks to be in mint condition.
It is a little different from the $1,600 FFR Soft Top offered now because it does not have fabric side curtains, but instead it has sliding plexiglass windows. Certainly better I think.
Just a quick heads up for anybody thats interested. The allen head bolts welded to the bottom of the main bows are the way they come, not something that was modified.

These are great tops - very original - and the sliding lexan sidecurtains are too cool!!! I have one for 7074 that will be installed in the next few weeks. One tip is to use some JB Weld to fill the threads on the above mentioned bolts that act as the pins for the top bows. I did that, sanded it smooth, and gave the ends a quick coat of black paint - will cut down on chafing and looks more finished.

FYI, I have what looks to be this exact same top. The threaded section on the bow is used with a knurled nut to tension the top after it's all snapped into place. The knurled parts could be in one of those bags and you may not realize what they are for.
Anyways, good luck on the sale.
