 Followed me home yesterday. One owner car with 53,000 miles. Parked for several years and the sunny side is pretty baked.







Any sources for a vinyl top and any good tips on installing it myself?

you might want to check that paperwork. Sure looks like a 71. Unless it was hit and the nose replaced with an earlier one. But I don't think so because there's no coupe deville script on the sail panel.

 Right you are, I just looked at the title and it's a 71. Just newer stuff than I usually deal in. thanks

When you replace the vinyl top, be sure to get the correct grain which I believe is called "Tuxedo". Recently saw a 72 CDV with the Elk grain and it just looked wrong.

Thanks. Are they a sponsored vendor here? I'm kinda new to the caddy world, haven't had to work on them since long before the internet.

We don't "sponsor" vendors due to liability concerns, but fortunately, SMS needs no such recommendation. They have original fabric for just about everything.
