I'm trying to find someone that has undertaken the job of getting a convertible top to fold into the area under the decklid on a California Custom Coach Speedster. If you have done this on your Speedster, I would appreciate a response. I can visualize how I need to proceed but it will take quite a few modifications.

Please keep posting your activity in this area. Very interesting modification. I’ve always thought the convertible top on a California Custom Coach car was a poor design with the convertible top support protruding through the body. It’s a vastly different process to other replica cars that closely match the original cars like Elegant Motors. If required I can put you in touch with a few other Speedster replica owners with builders who are not CCC so you can study their approach.
Feel free to contact me.
Regards
Jerome

Thanks for your response. I'm in the preliminary stages now as many other modifications I'm undertaking on this car. As I get closer, I will contact you. I will be attending Auburn Reunion this Labor Day and hope to photograph other replicas to assist in the conversion.

If you Send me a private message through this website I will happily give you my contact details. You are welcome to look at my car assuming you don’t live too far away. I’ve spent 3 years restoring and improving my speedster to show condition. I’ve learned a lot along the way. I’ve given free advice to some other replica owners and sometimes I’ve taken videos of my car, then loaded it on YouTube so they could look at the various areas they were asking questions about. It’s a process that’s worked well…..plus the sharing is a two way street. I’ve learned a few things from the other guys, so I’ve appreciated that as well.
Regards JEROME
