*** Regarding the top: The top has the original front wood bow and wood piece in the rear of the top as well. The original glass is also present and not broken or cracked. The top material is completely torn. The top will go up and down as designed however comes up about 1" short of closing(presumably because the material is hard/dry and is preventing the top from fully extending. *** Regarding ownership: I have only owned for a short time. The person I bought it from owned it for about 8 years. I do not know the ownership history prior to that.

*** As a result of questions regarding VIN under rear seat I have removed a rubberized coating that was covering it and confirmed it is a match to the other VIN #'s. I have a photo if anyone would like to see it for verification. I tried to put in my ad but it will not allow me to change photo's since bids have been placed.
