1967-1970 Camaro & Firebird Convertible Top with Folding Glass

Glass Window convertible top for the 1967-1970 Chevrolet Camaro and Pontiac Firebird. This is made from Robbins Sun-Fast Cloth and includes Robbins' patented Flex-Hinge folding glass window.

Get the benefits of clear glass on your 1967-1970 Camaro or Firebird convertible. Some of the key features include: stitched with non-fading thread, matching binding and hand waterproofed for an extra level of protection not found anywhere else.

We recommend replacing the Side Tension Cables (sold separately) when replaceing the top.

Folding glass requires use of Robbins deep well liner, part # WB7202 (sold separately). Failure to use deep well liner will result in damage to rear window. There is no warranty for such damage.

Caution: Folding Glass Windows must be unzipped and gently laid in top well before lowering the convertible top. Please follow this procedure to avoid breaking the glass.
Tip: Replacing your Side Tension Cables (P/N CBL721 sold separately) when replaceing the top can save you time and money, since cable removal and installation is part of the top replacement process.
