Volkswagen Thing Convertible Top

Volkswagen Thing Convertible Tops

We offer VW convertible tops for the classic VW Thing. We also offer Restoration Package Specials, which include everything you need (cables, rubber seals, padding) to install your VW replacement top on your Volkswagen Thing.

VW Thing Convertible Top Fabric

Our VW Thing tops are made by a German replacement-top specialist, and they have been installed in many prize-winning restorations. Volkswagen Thing soft tops come in Haartz pinpoint vinyl and canvas. Haartz pinpoint vinyl is the choice top for a majority of our customers. This classic top is original to many classic American and foreign convertibles, including the Volkswagen Thing. Canvas topping is the most durable and elegant.

M & T Mfg has proudly served Volkswagen owners for more than 35 years!

We have been providing Volkswagen restorers with parts for their classic Beetle, Karmann Ghia, VW Bus, Volkswagen Vanagon, VW Rabbit, VW Cabriolet, and VW Thing since 1974. We have nearly forty years in the Volkswagen restoration business! We originated in upholstery and convertible top parts but added VW sedan, body, glass, rubber and other parts.

We still operate the shop where we manufacture the convertible wood top bows for classic air-cooled Volkswagen Beetle and Karmann Ghia convertibles nearly forty years after we began. Our main building is a restored icehouse in southern Rhode Island. We have added separate warehouses, efficiently linked via our database of parts for air-cooled and water-cooled Volkswagen sedans and Volkswagen convertibles.

When we started making Volkswagen convertible wood top bows the demand for quality VW restoration led us to establish relationships with all Volkswagen parts manufacturers and importers. We came to develop a full line of replacement parts for the classic Beetle, Karmann Ghia, VW Bus, and VW Thing.

We developed relationships with hundreds of professional and home Volkswagen restorers. The community of Volkswagen restoration shops and private VW restorers has been invaluable in testing parts, helping us to locate special VW sources for parts and to securing help for our Volkswagen owner friends and customers.
