Re: 1955 Caribbean top material

I just picked up a 1955 Caribbean that needs a new top, so I’ll be following this thread with interest. From what I can tell, no one makes the 1955 original [Orlon] top material, and I believe that even in 1956, replacement 1955 tops were make of the 1956 diamond pinpoint vinyl [Hypalon] material. No one is offering 1956 tops with the color pads and headliner, so the two Caribbean owners in our PAC region have simply bought the raw materials and had the top and liners made from scratch. Prohibitively expensive, but they look stunning!
