Note: This area will be expanded with all new, better quality photos. We're just waiting for "Sunny California" to dry out a little!!!

The Exterior Top

The top material was Tan Drab Rubber interlined fabric, best described as light olive green. The color was the same inside and out. The edge binding and trim binding were made to match the interior trim. This combination of interior and top materials was shared only with the 180-A Deluxe Phaeton.
 

 
This photo and the one above show examples of "Locktite Binding" used to cover the tacks. Locktite binding was used on most open models and many closed models.
 

 
The front bow has a 1/4" deep arch or "true sweep" rarely seen on restored cars. With the exception of the 68-A&B Cabriolets, ALL open models had a similar 1/4" deep arch.
