When buying a Camaro convertible top, there are a few key points to consider. Since the Camaro convertible was introduced in the late 1960s, the design of the soft tops has changed dramatically. Different model years, conversion types, and body styles all affect the style and fit of a Camaro convertible top.

Finding the Right Camaro Convertible Top for Your Car

The first Camaros used pinpoint vinyl material for their tops, which became common in many American cars. Replacement tops for late-60s Camaros are available in the pinpoint vinyl style as well as in Sailcloth canvas. Designs that use plastic windows as well as designs that use glass windows are also available.

American Sunroof Conversions converted some later Camaros, such as late 1980s IROC-Zs. If your Camaro isn't designated as an A.S.C. car, then certain replacement tops may not be fit properly. If you're unsure whether or not your Camaro is an A.S.C., measuring the lower edge of the rear window and the distance between the bindings can help guarantee a perfect fit. Also, noting the sub model name when placing your order can help a vendor provide the right Camaro convertible top.

Camaros from the early 1990s used canvas cloth for their tops instead of pinpoint vinyl. Replacement canvas in the same style is available from many different convertible tops and interior kit dealers. In some cases, the company that manufactures the replacements may even have manufactured the originals.
