  • Body / Glass: Need a measurement

    Will be putting a new top on my 63 Lark convertible in the next days. Could someone here wander out to their Lark convertible, any year will do, and measure the distance from the TOP of the stainless molding below the rear window to about the middle of the tacking strip above the rear window. Please measure near the center of the car. I need this measurement to set the rear bow into the proper position before installing the pads. Thanks in advance.

          I've been told that the top on the 1960 Lark convertible is different than the tops on the later models.
