My 24 Touring has the top bow mounting post sticking out of the quarter panel.
I've noticed other cars have this post located above the quarter panel.
When did this change occur? Is this indicative of the "one-man top"?
I've noticed that the improved cars have this mounting location. But this car doesn't have the curved rear doors and quarter panel that the improved cars have.
Now I'm really flummoxed.
Could this be a late 25 model?
Your picture is of the 26-27 mount and top bow. Post a picture of the complete body for better information.
Someone must have done this. Look at original photos, and you will not see this type. Even the top bow socket appears incorrect.
