I just noticed the vinyl top is the wrong grain. My original 73 had the normal pebble type finish. Too bad. Leaves me scratching my head why with such an original car would not get the correct vinyl replacement. :wacko:

When I had the vinyl top replaced on my 1970 Skylark some 20 years ago, we could not find the correct vinyl locally so I got as close as I could. At the time, I didn't think about contacting SMS about a vinyl top.  Only eyes as sharp as Jason's can pick this out from the posted pictures.  It's amazing what you notice about a car if it's like one you've owned and become familiar with.  I did however get three correct vinyls for seat repair - bolsters, inserts, and back of the front seats from SMS.  Another one of those head scratchers. Why in the world did I ever sell that car?  Probably because it was just a 2bbl 350. But besides the new top and restored seats, I put new carpet in it and had it painted. Still, no real reason to sell it.

Although I’ve not ordered any yet, SMS also has original fabrics. Who knew? I’ve always associated them with just great vinyl.

I think A LOT had been redone on this vehicle. Im a sucker for triple green personally, so Im a fan, but the wrong grain!?

 

I can't even find good pictures of the vinyl top. You got those eagle eyes to spot Riviera details! He described it as "Forest Green." Its obviously dark and some mistake it for black.

I think that the proper grain for a 70s era vinyl top is the Levant grain.

I'm curious as to why the grains in these samples look different but they're all called Levant?

That green 73 above sold for $13,656 on ebay. I'd have been surprised if it hit 15k

I'm surprised it sold at all—I thought there would be a higher reserve than that.

It appears to me that the image of the green one was captured at a further distance from the camera.

Sample swatches always prove best. Grain pattern seems correct for ‘66 and up to me.
