thanks for the info, i was actually looking for a pininfarina steel hardtopHere is one on eBay in the US...no association to the seller...
Alfa Romeo Giulia Giulietta 101 Convertible Hardtop top - eBay (item 360242351298 end time Feb-03-11 09:44:54 PST)
I don't think the later one-piece hinge / hook, fits the early 750 style hinge and separate hook. At lease on mine they didn't. Different hole spacing.The easy solution would be the late style trunk hinges with included hooks, (late 101) available from Christian Ondrak at OK parts and engineering in Germany.
thank you for the great info Gordon, I have a 63 giulia spider, and therefore not the late or early type of hardtop...AlfaGTV74,
Use some degree of caution when you find one. There are several PF variations. Excluding the 750 tops, the 101 variations include a style that bolts to the rear deck, with a PF serial number plate (early 101 1300 only). Later style hooked into the trunk hinge hooks like the soft top, with a PF serial number plate (later 101 1300 & 1600). Finally, the last of them hooked into the trunk hinges but had no PF serial number plate under the rear window (late 1965). When all of these were made, they were selected to come close to fitting the car they may have been ordered with. If they were bought from an Alfa dealer as a separate item, fit was often less than good, and the skill of a good body man was required. This is the reason, besides painted, they were also factory available in primer only. These can be restored as ALFASTOP in G.B. offers many parts, and Pat Hung at Velocespace has the best rubber trim.
The same was also true of the PF tops for the 250 Ferrari's. Each was hand fitted to a particular car, and if the top is sold for another car, it needed to be refitted. I studied these tops, and looked at as many different variations as I could discover for about 45 years. Yes, I have one, period correct and fitted to my late '65 Veloce. No, I do not know of any for sale. They may not be inexpensive, fitting, and restoration by a good shop that knows how to do it (a good vintage Ferrari body shop) will charge for the work.
I expect you are in the USA?
I have a steel hardtop that i was fettling to fit my 1963 101.23 1600 Giulia spider.
The car is sold but the hardtop is still with me. It needs new rubbers but the rest is good. It even has sexy smoked green sunvisors!
I am in germany and I bought the hardtop from Italy.
Let me know if you are interested?
