Canvas Convertible Top from 1992 Alfa Spider

I will be selling an excellent condition black canvas convertible top in a few weeks.

The top is approximately 3 years old and was purchased new from alffissimo.com.

https://alfissimo.com/convertible-to...top-black.html

Priced to sell at $80.

I will only meet up for the transaction as the size of the top would not be cost effective to ship.

I am located in central New Jersey (08816).

Thanks for your interest.

Why sell a perfectly good top on a beautiful car? Otherwise I would be interested if you're willing to ship. Thanks.

the shop that installed it 3 years ago did a terrible job.

for me to have another shop re-fit the top would basically cost me the same labor of installing a new one so i opted just to get another top since the labor would essentially be the same.

What is wrong with the installation? Will holes punched or cutting by the original installer affect a second installation? If not, I would be happy to take a trip over to pick it up.

i have no idea about the re-install of the top as I did not do it myself. the top is in excellent condition though. excessive wind noise coming from the passenger corner. installer said that he would recommend buying a new front weather strip which costs about $40 from Centerline unless you decide to use your existing one from your current top. the top also leaks a little. my new installer said the old installer did a terrible job and for him to fix everything it would cost the same as to install a new top which is what i opted for.

i have someone right now who is interested in the top. if that does not go through i will let everyone know but i am sure that it will go to a good home. when you see it in person you would think it is near perfect condition for a top that is only three years old.


i have a busy november but right now the plan is to have my new top installed around the first week of december.

once the old top is off i can meet anyone in central, NJ.

thanks everyone.
