Re: [Chrysler300] Correct color INSIDE white convertible top, 300C





Ray,

     You may want to check with RockAuto (rockauto.com) about convertible tops.  I had to replace the one on my 300 E last fall, and I was able to find a white top with tan inside inserts from their list.  There was a choice between pinpoint vinyl and canvas -- I chose the latter.

Have bought 5 or 6 tips from Bill Hirsch . Impeccable stuff . White only in vinyl, but he has super quality tan ones . I belive vinyl is correct type .. He has the other stuff you need too .

Can only speak for the top we ordered from "EZONTOP"    after examining a lot of tops on Chryslers at the Pennsylvania club meet, looking for the best fitting tops.  We ordered a white one as that was as close to the original color and wanted white pads. But was informed that only black pads, period, were available. So while I haven't seen it yet, am sure it's pads are black .

Hello All --

I need to replace the age-shrunken convertible top on my late father's
1957 Chrysler 300C, nearing the end of a three-year restoration
process. Gil Cunningham shows the code for the top is "222" = ivory.
My father replaced the top in 1973, and the inside ("headliner", as it
might seem) is black canvas. I was a bit surprised, thinking that a
light buckskin tan would have gone better with the leather seats and the
color of the exposed bow inside the top - probably would also visually
brighten and "open up" the feeling inside the car. However, the
well-reputed upholstery shop in El Paso, TX reports that not a single
major manufacturer makes the white top with a tan interior; black is the
only interior color available. I seem to recall that the correct
exterior material is called "pinpoint vinyl", while the interior
material is a tight-weave canvas; can anyone confirm that for me?

Can anyone help with authentication of what the correct original INSIDE
color should have been for the white exterior top on my Gauguin body?
Secondly, does anyone have good relatively recent (within ten years)
experience with such a manufacturer of a convertible top for the 300C,
regardless of color? The shop I am using prefers Robbins. I have
loaned out and can't immediately access my Gary Goers catalog, or that
would have been the first place I would have looked. Can anyone
confirm/deny that Gary makes a top for the 300C?

Any comments will be much appreciated!
