Does anyone have a picture of the proper top bows and irons for a 25 Roadster? Mine is a Canadian car so I am not sure if there is a difference. Recently purchased the car and there are a set of irons but they don't look right for some reason.
23-5 roadster top frame
hard to see in the photos posted by chuck and phil, but your irons should be rectangular, not oval, and the 17 to 22 version has pins and round loops for the front iron to be positioned, where as the 23-25 will have a loop with a slot in it on the middle iron, and the front has a T that goes into the slots. hope that makes sense. and, if they are oval, send them to me!!
Thanks guys. Mine are definitely not 24-25's. Clayton, I will take a photo and add some dimensions to it in the next few days and send it to you. They are oval and I know the back iron is around 33".
They made a change in the front bow in '24 or '25. It isn't significant, but if you will look at the photo Phil posted, that one is the earlier style. The later style had a square cutout between the two bolt heads to allow for tacks. It is about 1/2" square. Also, there are two places for common sense fasteners on them.
