1950 ford custom convertible

Good day

i have a 50 convertible coupe that has a tattered convertible top as well
as broken frame with pieces broken and missing. is there anywhere that i may be able to buy a complete frame and top assembly? Right now can't get the broken frame to allow the top to go up.

Any ideas would be appreciated.

Welcome. Until the fellows who may know the answers show up consider tagging your name with your general location. Transporting a chassis can be considerable. There are experts to help with your top frame.

Enjoy the journey.

The 49-59 Ford/Mercury association does not have complete top assemblies, but they have many very hard to find parts for the top mechanism and re-manufacture some that are commonly broken. 614-905-2151

And if you end up buying different top frame , search for 1951 one. Its much more rigid and weatherstripping is great compared to -49 or -50. I have one in my -50.

The 1944-1952 Body Parts catalog shows a diagram of your 1950 top mechanism on page 305. You can obtain a copy of the book at C&G (800) 266-0470. Ask for V44, $52. It will guide you on what you need, and where it fits. Finding a whole top assembly is unlikely as salvage yards for early cars have mostly disappeared. Convertibles are a limited production type, making such parts scarce, to say the least. It took me over a year to assemble parts for my '47 convertible, and we had to make many of them in our shop.
