I would be willing to sell mine. I have a folding type top coming in from Germany. Contact me by email. Hope you are willing to wait a couple of weeks until I recieve the other top and verify its condition.

Did you order it from these guys http://www.cabrio.de/navi2.htm

I'm planning on driving down there and have them installing a new one for me - they seem to have fair prices and a good variety of colors

RE: I have one for you...

I have a frame and a top that I don't need anymore from my 79 240GD cabrio. The frame is excellent, the top is in good shape but needs to have a zipper repaired on the rear rollup window (over the tailgate) Otherwise it is pretty decent with no rips or tears in it.

I have gone to just using the bikini top for the most part now.

SteveD,

Travis at Europa has most of the parts, or can get them for you. If the top is in good repair it should include most items, assuming your G has had a soft top before. The little loops along the top of the body edge, and the cable tightening mechanism are important items.

Sorry I have not emailed you. I will have the new top next Monday or Tuesday. I am a little apprehensive about selling my old one until I have the new one! I am hoping for the best. I know the small parts will kill me cost wise. The "new" top is supposed to have all the bits, but I am doubtful. Only time will tell! Thanks to Captain Spalding for taking and sending me many photos of the newer type top. They will be invaluable in installing and buying parts.

I may be able to find a frame for you. What is your price range?
