    For Green's 30 year Anniversary on April 17th-
    Brand new fiberglass top and doors from Rally Tops.
    I cannot say enough about how good their quality is.
    Jerry the owner is a great guy to work with.

    FWIW,

    FWIW I found that Summit had 2 Black Denim Super Tops for early 5s. I purchased one. Summit is the only place I found that had any in black.

    That's a good looking top.
    Appears to fit like a glove.

    Agreed - I was researching those tops and really like the look. Cost is fairly significant, but that's the way hard-tops go. Even YJ/TJ hardtops are 3-5k, so I think pricing is inline with a "one time", "life of the vehicle" purchase.

    My uses would have me loading up the roof with a bit of gear, so I like that they offer options for a heavy duty rack system. Priced out with all the options I'd choose, it's $2975.00

    Nice! I'm waffling between black denim and the tan top. I think both look good.

    i have a Kelly (i believe) hardtop, which has some features of certain other tops, but is not a match for any of the Kellys. it's odd, hopefully someone can identify it here.

    It's a Kelley Custom 300 top. You can see it in the vintage Kelley brochure posted earlier in this very thread: Jeep Tops - Past and Present - A Partial List

    Good point. I take that back, it looks more like a 200 with more/bigger windows. I'm sure they made running changes along the way. It's probably a transition between the two. The brochures are just a snapshot in time.

    Saw this one for sale, and I like that style hard top and the doors. What brand top is this?

    X 2! And to be more specific the indentions make it a Bonanza III (I think that's right). Edited to read III.

    It's either a Bonanza or a "Custom 300" according to the original brochure on this thread: Jeep Tops - Past and Present - A Partial List

    Hard to tell since it's been painted. The only real difference seems to be the Bonanza had wood trim stickers.

    I have the same top on my '69:

    It's the indentions that the trim is in that makes it easy to tell. Not all of them have it. The Custom, or the Standard doesn't have that.

    It's still original paint on my doors with no signs of there ever having been decals. I imagine they consolidated to a single stamping at some point.
