Haven't got to my top frame yet. I have 2 to choose from for this car. I did by a repop for a 69 Camaro convert that I built last year. Fit real well. No problems.

Re: 68-72 convertible header bow

Yes I purchased the dynacorn unit although I suspect they are all the same. They list it specific to 70-72 but it was absolutely perfect in every detail for my 68. Probably one of the best restoration pieces out there.. You will need a 120-140 amp and up welder because it is heavy gauge steel. Mine was repairable but decided to go new and very happy I did. Just dont hack up the old one where it attaches. Drill out the welds and install it back exactly like the factory did..The cloth backed vinyl causes the top front bow to rot out, bad design
