Corvette C5 (1998-2004)

When the weather is fair and the top is down nothing beats the joy of driving an Corvette convertible! However, when the top is up, it's not so great. If the weather is too hot, too cold, too wet or if you are on a long drive on the freeway, you just can't beat a Smooth Line Hardtop. Now you can have the best of both worlds!

Adding a Smooth Line Hardtop is one of the best styling and practical improvements that can be made to your convertible. Coming or going, our custom designed Hardtop will give an exciting, clean, sleek appearance to your Corvette while protecting you from unwanted noise and weather.

Our Removable Hardtop, which was introduced in 2001, accentuates the GM Z06 "double bubble" roof silhouette. This exciting Smooth Line design also features a curved, flush mounted, convertible sized, rear window for a very sleek and low look. Coming or going, our Hardtop will give your Corvette a very aggressive stance that will definitely make heads turn! If you want the "Bad Boy" Z06 look, this is it!

The interior is upholstered in a thick OEM felt automotive headliner material that will compliment the interior of your car. This headliner significantly absorbs road noises and also is an excellent insulator against heat or cold. Now you will be able to have normal conversation or really enjoy your favorite music on your stereo. Great on long drives!

Our rain guards will help keep your seats dry when the door is opened. This new Hardtop is complete with thick rubber moldings attached to ensure a weather tight seal. When your Corvette is parked, a Smooth Line Hardtop also adds additional security for the car and personal items.

All Smooth Line Hardtops are made in the USA by American craftsmen. Quality is an absolute! All production is done in house to insure high standards. The shell is a premium grade automotive fiberglass composite which is very strong but light weight. The exterior is finished to perfection with two coats of smooth black urethane primer ready for a top coat color of your choice. For the best color match, we recommend using a local high quality auto body paint shop that can computer scan your Corvette to match the paint.

Every Smooth Line Hardtop is custom made to order by our expert trained craftsman one at a time and are assigned a unique serial number. We have a one-year Limited Warranty against defects in workmanship or materials.

The standard Smooth Line Corvette Hardtop is finished in a smooth, ready to paint, black primed urethane exterior finish with charcoal gray headliner and tinted Plexiglas window. Nothing extra to buy!

Customer Testimonial

"I just want to commend you on the quality and craftsmanship in your product, not to mention made in the USA. I just love the double bubble look of the ZO6 and the rear window that looks like the size of my convertible top window. The white vinyl looks fantastic. The top was very easy to install. My wife and I attended the Gathering at Bowling Green, KY and demonstrated how easy it was to take off and put on." - R.S., NC

I really love it. It totally changes the looks of the vehicle, and is something that I would never want to be without. I can change out, change looks,have the top down, etc --- it is really neat, and I have shown it to numerous Vette owners. - B.W., OK
