So what are the chances that this legendary low windshield hardtop repro actually comes to fruition?

I wish that I knew. I am quite frustrated. They have had my top for well over a year - I was told that they would have it for 3 months tops.

What do you need a hard top for in Florida! Yes, it rains a little in the afternoon, but ... I live in the frozen tundra of Kansas and I haven't had my hard top on for probably 10 years. Honestly, a year is a long time, but it will probably worth the wait to have a nice new short windshield hard top.

They still have a website---Smoothline

But, I believe this project has fallen by the wayside and should be considered dead. Hope Sid gets his top back.

Well, maybe there is some hope as they have this on their website.
PROTOTYPES ARE IN PROCESS

We shall see.

I’d be willing to bet the Smoothline folks would move this project up on their priority list if the low-windshield members started peppering them with emails...

That could not hurt for sure. Actually a great idea.

Email sent. A follow-up to a response I received from them almost 2 years ago.
