Last week Milaca(Brent)brought me out to a farmer junkyard.I knew the yard and had been there 15-20 years ago but had forgotten how to get there.In the yard is a 1962 Daytona Convertible.Must have been sweet ride in it's prime as it was a V8 4bbl with a 4-speed and a TT rear.The 4-speed and rear end are gone as well as the carb.I saved the air cleaner and took a pic(yes,it's a lousy one..I know that.) and will be parting it out over the next few weeks.If anyone needs something specific let me know.The bucket seats are marginal at best.

I could use the convertible top frame (Driver's side)to replace the broken hinge pin on my convertible. I'm not to sure the condition of the rail on your car but if it is in decent condition i would buy it. I'd also be interested in the belt line molding.

Those culvert make good chimneys. They don't rust away like stove pipe. Jim

Which hinge pin do you need, Allen? I have some extra top frame parts.

The culvert is cash and carry!
I'll get a price and call.

Thanks Bob, Here is the link to the part that I need. I still don't know the best way to fix this convertible top of mine.

Maybe/hopefully, Dave(Barnlark) will be able to help figure this one out.

Email sent, but I may look into these other ideas, too. Mine works great with the unique shoulder bolt, but I explained it all in the email.
