Saw that Mach the other day there on eBay. A little over priced if you ask me. But I have seen another Mach I with a vinyl roof. It was a Playboy Pink '69 Mach I, with black vinyl roof. I believe when I read the article a few years ago it was in Washington. Something that it was a giveaway for some promtotion. The roof looked just like the '70 for auction. The vinyl roof on the '69 was factory installed, they had the paperwork to back it up. Maybe this '70 could be a rare car to get a vinyl roof, or maybe it's an aftermarket part.

I have one like this on my fast back, but could never verify if it was factory, dealer or after thought. I started to back track the ownership of the car but ran into a dead end at two owners before me! I guess the 70s were good for him (brain dead), he barely remembered owning the car. There is a red 67 fastback with a white vinyl top in the very beginning of the movie Car Wash that looks like this also. I also found a set for a 69-70 at a swap once, still got there here somewhere.

Hey 70sportsroof,
That pink '69 you mention is indeed in Washington. I have seen it in person several times and talked to the owner and yes indeed he does have all the paperwork to back up the fact it is a factory install. So, I'm guessing there are other's out there.

This is weird, my cousin has an S-code 68 fastback, he was telling us the body shop called him to come and see what they found, it was the holes in the body for the vinyl top trim, we told him he was full of sh**, that fastbacks NEVER had vinyl roofs, maybe we were wrong.This is the only time I've heard of anyone else having a vinyl top on a fastback.

This is a very interesting topic. Marti Auto Works, which has the whole database for Ford products from 1967 through 1973, lists the following, in the book "Mustang by the Numbers":

Factory Vinyl Roofs in Fastbacks

1973 8050
1972 866
1971 150
1970 no listing
1969 no listing
1968 0
1967 0

Think I will e-mail Kevin Marti and see what he has to say. I remember reading in one of the Mustang magazines back in the late 80s or early 90s of a 67 or 68 Fastback with a vinyl roof and I believe there was some documentation with it.

I will let everyone know what Kevin says, when he gets back to me.

Troy used to have a '69 Sportsroof with a vinyl roof.

There were actually two types, a full vinyl roof, and a semi-vinyl roof. I have pics of both types somewhere.

I have some 69.5 dealer literature which shows the vinyl top options. A friend in high school got an "S" code light blue 4 -speed 69 Mach for graduation. It had a factory installed black vinyl top. This was in June of 1970 and it was a LEFT OVER 69. Three things were against that car. 1) It's color was "looser blue". 2) It was a 390 when everyone who wanted a big block wanted a 428. 3) It was soooo ugly with that top.
End result was incredible as he was accepted to MIT (he was very smart) and as an additional reward his parents paid for a dealer installation of a brand new 427-425 "R" code dual quad engine. Funny thing was that the dealer installed it with exhaust manifolds and an OEM "H" pipe. CJ or 390 manifolds do not fit 427 heads. We of course being as "smart as we were", immediately pitched the manifolds and "H" pipe with corresponding transverse exhaust system. Headers and thrush header mufflers were the replacements. (dumb, dumb, dumb!)

Kevin Marti got back to me and he is thus far convinced that there were NO FACTORY vinyl roofs on fastbacks prior to 1971. It is his opinion that any in existence were installed by the dealers. He would like to be shown any concrete evidence that some were actually done right at the factory.

What about this 'dealer literature' that was mentioned? Does that show what the dealer could order on a car direct from the factory, or what the dealer could install after the fact?

Does anyone have the VIN of a car that they believe is a factory original vinyl roof-equipped fastback of 1970 or earlier? Then it could be checked against the records in the Ford database, to see what shows up on the production report.

Could someone contact the seller of the white 1970 Mach One on eBay and ask for the car's VIN? (I can't register on eBay, because I don't use credit/debit cards and will be leaving AOL in about a month, and switching to Juno. For that provider, eBay demands a credit card for i.d.)

Kevin Marti claims there are no errors/omissions in the Ford database, or at least that he has not encountered any yet. (He did not make any comment about my mentioning that there were NO listings for the vinyl roof option on ANY 69 and 70 cars in his book.)

My goal is not to seek to discredit either Kevin or the Ford database. I would like to help establish a definitive answer as to whether there really were any factory vinyl roof-equipped fastbacks built prior to 1971. Because, I can't help envisioning the following scenario: Someone finding one, that could be brought back from the dead, but believing that it is not original and letting it go to the crusher.

Genuine rarity should be preserved for posterity.

If anyone believes they have solid evidence to support the idea of factory-installed vinyl roofs on pre-1971 fastbacks, let's assemble the info and send it to Kevin Marti. He says that he is very much interested to see it.

Maybe we can help to clear up one of the cloudier issues in Mustang history.

For what it's worth,
In late 69 I was loking for a new car.
I ran across a '69 Sportroof at the Local Mercury Dealers Used Car lot..it was ugly Yellow with the black vinyl roof.

I opted for the new '69 Mach I at the Ford dealer they had left in stock.

HE?

Do "he" and pink cars go together?

Dealers will do anything... taste takes a backseat to profits. A dealer i used to work at in the early 80's had 4x4 trucks with whitewalls and wire hubcaps They had whitewalls put on TRX wheels (ground them into stock the Michelin tires)on Mustang Cobras.

A vinyl roof detracts from the lines of a fastback big time. Theres a reason they never offered Continetal kits, fender skirts and hood ornaments on Mustangs

My Kevin Marie report has no mention of the vinyl roof so I assumed it was a dealer or aftermarket item.

Ty
and
T5 Owner:

What are your VINs?

Yes, I had emailed the seller of the 70 Mach One on eBay and he got back to me with that same info. So that is one that can be ruled out as far as being factory vinyl roof.

On a personal note, I just received the Marti report for the 73 Gran Torino Brougham 4 door that I bought. First item on the option list is a white vinyl roof. But it is missing from my car and the guy I bought it from made no mention of it. GRRRRRR!!! I have not had the car delivered to me yet. He said he would trailer it up from Virginia for me whenever I want. I have been waiting for the weather here to stabilize. I have sent an e-mail to him. A new white vinyl roof is going to be installed, one way or the other, or there is going to be an *** in a sling and it ain't gonna be mine!

The 68 prior to my current car was a fastback that had a vinyl roof on it. I can't tell you if it was factory or not. The car was a red fastback with a black top, 289, 4spd.

If these vinyl-topped '68 & '69 fastback Mustangs had their Vtops installed at some local dealer, how did they come up with the aluminum, stainless-steel or chrome trim around the bottom?

Doesn't it seem reasonable that this trim would have to be obtained thru FoMoCo.....and why would they manufacture such trim if the vinyl top wasn't offered from the factory?

Kevin Marti's Book "Mustangs By The Numbers" kists all the options for 67-8 and the number of units with the options. Under Vinyl roof, as it's referred to, The fastback for each year gets a zero!

We've got stuffed away (somewhere), complete in the original Ford box, an accessory vinyl top kit for early Mustang coupes that has a western motif pattern, complete with a pair of landau bars! I can't recall what the installation sheets with it actually "named" this vinyl roof, but you've just got to laugh when you see it. One of my Dad's friends bought the kit from a garage sale in the Dearborn area, ex-Ford employee. It's one of those obscure-rare N.O.S. "did you know" type of things that everybody would ooh and ahh over, but would never actually consider installing it which makes it quite a worthless oddity!

I've seen that in person. Actually, it's not a top at all. It's like a slip cover that goes over your convertible top you can take on and off at your leisure, and drive while installed. A slick idea, and you wouldn't believe all the different nutty patterns she's got available.

Many different patterns, huh? That's a scary thought!

By the way, Rick, would you know where to get a good fitting vinyl roof for my brother's '72 Torino formal roof?

When vinyl roofs were the rage, late 60's early 70's, many dealers would "cap" a used car with a V top. Guys went around to the lots, detailing, engine clean up, spotting in, headliners, and V tops. The better ones had mouldings and rolls of Plastic mouldings that could be custom trimmed-and some of it looked factory to the outsider. They had houndstooth, plaids, etc and it was pretty ugly to me but beauty, ughhh!, was in the eye (with bad taste!) of the beholder! LOL!

Yeah Ford and the Ford Dealers did some crazy things in the 60's and 70's. And yes they did make fender skirts for the mustang. I saw a pair at Ford @ Carlisle last year. $325 for em and ugly as SIN.

The secret of success is sincerity. Once you can fake that, you got it made.
