How's for 28 roadster

Recommended Posts

I have had to resort to making by 2 bows for my 28 roadsters.  Have not found any to buy.  My car had 1 bow but it was really broken up.  Would like to see what each bow looks like.

You might want to be sure what you have is for your car.  It's not uncommon after so much time,  for the top to go missing and a close enough replacement to have been sourced if it doesn't look like the ones in a model a catalog.

Undoubtedly someone has doctored the top over the years. One style was used for '28-'29 roadsters. It would behoove you to install the correct top, which would be available from all the Model A parts houses.

If you find a top at a flea mkt, chances are it's from a 30-31 standard top which looks the same but is bigger and the folding metal is different. The reason for this is most 30-31 roadsters were originally standard but were up graded when restored.

I have the old top.  It's the bows that I only have one a and it is broken.  I bought a new top just have to finish up the oak bows I am trying to make.

Is Snyders the model A and T store or is there another for Chryslers? I need the bows for a 1928 Chrysler 72 roadster. I have the top irons but no bows for patterns. A pattern would be great!
