    I do not know, I have an 84 cap with sliding windows if that 77 won't work for you. You can just about have it if you want.

    i've had it... the tub is a rotfest.. but solid frame and other good parts.....

    since i get canvas work done dirt cheap and do glasswork daily, i'm gonna skeletonize the the 77 down to a frame and have my canvas guy make up some isenglass panels for it.. cutouts on the top, etc...

    76-91 all interchange. The only significant change was that in 89 or 90 they added shoulder belts to the rear so those toppers have a retractor mechanism molded into the top.
