Nice, Jeff. Got a price yet?

The maroon top many Hudson convertibles had was a very distinctive feature. Black and tan were also seen somewhat regularly.

Would it be safe to say that the original top material was what we call a "Hartz" top? Almost like a suede type?

Correct. Most American convertibles up until the early-mid 1950s used Haartz (with two "a"s) canvas. I believe the canvas top option on the present-production Chrysler 200 (in place of the vinyl) is also made by Haartz.

Anyone making a convertible top to fit the Moebius Hudson convertible? I would love to build mine with a nice top that sets off the color of the car.

 

Please let me know how to grab one, if one is made. Thank you in advance.
