My Donald Healey hard top

With the hard top talk that has been going on I decided to put my hard top on Little Mo today. I bought it from Donald Healey's dealership just before I had them ship the car to the States. There is no outside mounting hardware and I really like the visibility with the side window.

I have added photos onto the last page of my Webshots.

Very nice. Any idea how much it weighs?

No idea of its weight but I can take it on and off by myself. It would be easier with a helper but it isn't necessary. Today was the first time it has been on the car since 1973.

That looks really good! I don't remember ever seeing one like that before.

There is a photo of it in Horler's book on page 68 but it doesn't show the inside.

Very nice top. Really makes the square body Sprite look more rounded. Mine accentuates the angles more than the curves:

Very nice, Nelson. The car looks like it just rolled off the straight at Sebring!

It'd be great if you could bring that top to Conclave, but June in Louisville is not exactly hard top weather. :frown:

I've been thinking about taking the top to Conclave. There is room in the back of the van I use to pull my trailer. That way I could put the top on to show it and leave it in the van the rest of the time.
