"The last top you will ever have to buy."
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 the late 80's accents the C-4 roof silhouette. The profile and the style of the Smooth Line Hardtop is very similar to the GM auxiliary hardtop, however, this is where the similarity ends.
The OEM's primary concept, which was successful, was to stiffen the chassis for racing purposes. The end result was very good looking, but not exactly user friendly for the average customer. It was heavy because of internal metal structure, noisy, difficult to install or remove, and did not fit all C-4 convertibles. GM no longer supports any replacement parts program for their hardtop.
On the other hand, the Smooth Line Hardtop is also very good looking featuring a flush mounted rear window for a very sleek and low look. Smooth Line's C-4 version is very user friendly, light weigh, only 35 pounds, yet strong, easy to install or remove and fits all years 1986 - 96. Talk about quite, amazing! See Corvette Enthusiast
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 to ensure a weather tight seal. When your Corvette is parked or in storage, a Smooth Line Hardtop also adds additional security for the car and personal items.
