Replacing top frame?

Postby Primo » Mon Oct 28, 2019 5:19 pm

I am considering buying a parts car with a seemingly intact top. The top on my '66 LCC has broken a few pieces and I was wondering if it would be better to replace the broken pieces or to swap the frames. I can get the car for fairly cheap and if a swap would be better I'd just buy this parts car. Here are a couple vids of the trunk and engine bay.

The car is pretty roached but the top would probably be worth more than what I'd pay for the car.

I’ve got a front header piece with the cover if you need one. Bought for my old convertible and never swapped it.

I’m not sure what all I’ll need. I know I will need at least the passenger side of the piece pictured.
