For Stan's 40...would sell for more with a top and doors...I should have doors to donate. Want to make as much as possible for his mom's charity.

What year tops will fit a 1980??

Thanks.

'78 and later will be correct, I believe.

I have read that any year 40 cap will fit. I know first hand that anywhere from a 1966-1978 cap are interchangeable, probably wider but that's first hand. I also recall that any 1975-up upper rear sides should fit. I know there are details, but dimensions should be the same on tops. Most of the 1979-up differences were below the tops.

If you are to put a later model cap on an early cruiser you must modify the windshield channel at the top of the cap to fit around the wiper arms. as well as drill holes to match up with those in the windshield frame.
