MGA Aftermarket Hardtops - TT-123PD
"PLASTIC DYNAMICS"

This one was submitted by Jim Ferguson who bought one new in 1960. He sent a LARGE scan of his original order form. I have cropped the pictures and recreate the rest in plain text. He said for $165 in 1960 he couldn't resist.

Sidecurtains are Moss aftermarket aluminum frames, same as used with soft top.

These photos from Jim Ferguson, recently bought almost like new through eBay.

The one I now have may or may not have the correct seals but the back seal is a round hollow foam that attaches to the bottom edge. The front seal was just a plain flat foam weaterstrip. The front attachment is two thumb screws that clamp the windshield frame - not the soft top pegs. The rear attachment is by "J bolts" like the facory model. The standard side curtains are supposed to fit but on my car I have some problems. - Jim F.

Photo at right showing the front seal and attachment latch is courtesy of Miel Gerritse in the Netherlands.
