Convertible Top Folded Picture
« on: August 11, 2020, 06:54:01 PM »
My convertible top works normally but when it is folded the first fold remains forward of the top of the back seat by about 1.5 inches.  I have been searching the internet for pictures of 69/70 Mustangs or Shelbys to compare to mine.  It is possible that the top canvas was made funny or it is equally possible that there is nothing wrong at all.  A pic of what your top looks like folded would be appreciated.

Eric, these are not the best, couple I caught in my area over time, I'm sure some else will come up with more detail, we have a great resource here !

Commented on your Staggerwing earlier, beautiful  8)

Did you get your question sorted out?  I have a 69/70 and as the top folds down the bottom or first fold goes forward, then I push the second fold towards the back of the car.  The last fold goes to the back as well.  The very first fold or bottom one is just a little over the back seat trim and I tuck it down prior to placing the boot on.  I'm stating all this from memory and can always double check if you need me to but feel 98% correct.

That is how mine is configured but it just seems odd to me that it really covers the top of the backseat.  I will post a picture when I get out to the garage next.
