Well I found what remains of the body tag of my 151 under the radiator on the left side of the frame. Unfortunately all that remains is a part of the upper left corner of it..So it would seem I will never know exactly what year or who made my 151.....

Oh well, Join the rest of the crowd. And that is not the original hood so sanding the sides in hopes of finding the original number are out. I think that one was put together using a lot of A1 parts. At least the windshield, hood and turn signals anyway are all A1.

Mike, your top looks nice. Who did you get your canvas from?

Love the dogs, not exactly Fla. dogs though, they must hate the heat. I am surprised the top is that loose, most canvas tops are very tight. I am sure it will shrink to fit though.

My Huskies do ok.They were raised down here so they have acclimated well. I don't push them when its real hot .They do prefer the cold though. They live inside with the AC so no big deal for them.

I am sure the top will shrink.How much I will have to see. The Vinyl top seemed loose to on it as well.

The vinyl ones are always loose, too loose as a matter of fact. Mine becomes a swimming pool if it rains, I have to be sure to make the first turn a right turn. The wife is never happy with that. :lol: :lol: :lol:
