1931 Convertible Sedan - 400-A

Page - 2

The top was quite elaborate for an inexpensive car. The top included a special flap inside to act a as a wind seal along the side rails. None of the stitching was visible from outside the car.

 

The "roof cover" edge binding matched the interior trim. The hidem trim as we call it today was patented "Locktite" binding. The Convertible Sedan did not have the usual top reinforcement stitch line near the perimeter.

 

Another view of Locktite binding. Note the nice arch or crown to the original wooden main bow. This arch matched the two steel bows and the other wood bow creating a nice side to side crown for the entire top. This is generally not found with replacement wood.

 

The windshield frame is chrome plated. The back side was painted with satin lacquer
