The Boston Top, an Aluminum Hardtop

• CATEGORIES: Features • TAGS: , .

UPDATE: Mystery solved. I found a couple brochures about this top. They were published in a 1947ish Willys Overland Equipment Book (thanks to Jon for letting me scan that particular folder). The suicide doors were original to this top. Examples of The Boston Top below:

    I would also be interested in any information. The Jeep with the green barn in the background is mine. I am also interested in knowing more about how the door latches are setup. They never really have lined up for me.

    Hi Justin,

    I’ve found and published a brochure that identifies this as The Boston Top, built by the Willys New England Company. Check out the updated post.
