Some more detailed info on the Gales' Mod Top [Note: The black vinyl top has now been replaced with reproduction floral vinyl (V1P)]:

"The car has Mod Top etched in the back glass. But the Mod top and Mod interior have been replaced with black. We have the build sheet which we now know indicates the car should have both the Mod Top and Mod interior. We are thinking of just putting the roof back Mod and leaving the interior black. The interior was just recently done., We just purchased the car a few days ago and hare really learning alot. We were not even sure what Mod Top meant...It came originally from CA, but the third owner rescued it from behind a gas station in Arkansas. (We are the fourth owners) We spoke with the previous owner last evening and he was able to give us some history. It only has 52,000 orginal miles, which is good. Evidently the second owner was in the military and his parents, the first owners, just stored it for him. Anyway a bit of history for our car. We are still enjoying finding out all the little bits about the car. It was such a blessing just finding it. It is the car my husband has always wanted. This just goes to show that we are given our hearts desires." [God is truly awesome, when we seek Him first, isn't He? -- Julie]
