Yes, American tops are very similar to Hurst...no repro weatherstripping is available that I'm aware of...sorry.

More info on the different styles of tops (including American)here: http://www.78ta.com/ttops.php

Why?.... this site ain't good enough? (Just Kidding)


Yes, you have the American T-tops which was an aftermarket company back then.  They have long since been out of business and you can't get any new parts for them.  You have to find some on the Forums or on places like Ebay.  I have not seen anything for the American T-tops in quite a long time so you might be out of luck.
