That looks like the one I installed on my older IM thanks to the find by Carl Berry. The important feature was the very nice fit around the windshield top. The side curtains are an easy fit like Wolf suggests.

And as an aside....we're off to sunny Wells, Maine tomorrow for five days. A nice drive down through Lake Champlain, Burlington, Vt and over to the coast. Can you say....LABSTAH ?

Mike - I think your right - never noticed that fiberglass side curtain lip on the Plasticon - guess cuz they usually have rubber weather stripping there.

I went to their website.

They have Plasticon and  Plastikon tops. The one with the k is for kit cars, get it?

I think maybe the side open is a little longer on the k version to accommodate our windshield post being located a bit forward of that of an original.

Their text information is a little hard to interpret. 

I don't think Rusty Tubs checks in on this website. You'd be better off contacting them directly via their website. Either way the top will need to be fitted to your Speedster and modified slightly since all of our cars are different.

You could contact Greg at @VSpyder and see about him making you one. Several of our members have done that and the work is fantastic.

My buddie Randy and I did a similar hard top for David Bayne to fit a CMC / body. It takes a lot of prep and man hours to get it right, then there's the hard top to body fasteners , weather seals, paint , headliner and putting in the rear window which will test your sanity.

I still say those tops don't suit a Speedster- too 'bubbly' and not aerodynamic enough. It should be shaped more like Oliver's or Mango's.

Agree BUT if you need a more weather-tight solution and have to (or want to) drive the Speedster in bad conditions it makes for a warmer, dryer environment with better visibility.  Even the emergency soft top isn't that attractive - the car is meant to be top-less in warm sunny weather!

I had a '69 MGC with OEM hardtop - it sure was quieter (no soft headliner) and roomier feeling on long trips (it was my only car).  You also had clear access to the rear seat area.  It had side quarter windows like the D hardtop (that won't fit the Speedster windshield frame).

My Mean Green Machine Super Widebody made a stop at Vintage Motorcars of California Inc. on its way to its new owner in Florida and Greg Leach made a beautiful hardtop for it.  Here are some pictures.449554495744959

That instantly has become of of my favorite Speedsters all time. One of only two hard top super wide bodies I have ever seen. Beast of both worlds, coupe and roadster imo.
