I am considering installing a new top on my 1912 touring car. Which material is correct for this year? It seems the choices are Colonial Grain or Cobra Short Grain. Thanks in advance, Macky
I may be off base here and I would have to look at a friends 12, but I really don't think ether of those choices would be correct. I would think it would be a water proof canvas type material with grain of the material being the woven fabric. Maybe closer to what more modern convertibles use.
Canvas is what our '14 Touring has on it !
I'll bet a non-expert named Larry knows...
Look at the 2016 Stynosky Winner a 1912 Touring which also won a AACA National Award. It was researched by Bob and is correct, the beautiful car was restored by Bob Richmond
I have a hunch Mike at Classtique would know and have the material
Thanks for the nice comments David, as I recall it's the Colonial Ford Grain, purchased from Lang's by the yard.
