i still haven't figured out what the top is...it looks to my eye closest to the "cabrio" or "pigskin" surface.  But, it has the very nice lining too.  I've discovered that it has already been painted once.  The original color, visible in a few places is more like the Palomino, or with a bit more orange.  I suppose the PO didn't care for this and had it painted.  I'm inclined to try and paint it again...a similar color.  The top should be Sandlewood, so I'll try to find a SEM color close to that.  
I don't really mind the expense of a new top, but this one fits so well, and, aside from a few minor problem areas at the glass window that I can fix, its in perfect shape.

I would probably try and give it a good scrubbing with some convertible top cleaner before replacing that because it's gonna be $$$$$$$$$. Car looks great by the way.

where do I find a new and better motor?

Posted by john kilbourne on May 24, 2018 at 11:43am 11 Comments

My '64 convert is getting better, but the engine remains questionable. Starts and runs well enough, powerful, but I think I hear a main bearing banging, the balance is not great and I'd like to upgrade to fuel injection if I can.

Are there dependable remans available of good quality? Are new crate engines available? Will more advanced engines from newer years fit?

Also, please, the diff ratio is quite high, lots of RPMs compared to today's cars. Are there diffs with lower…
