Hello fellow turbo dodge owners,

I am looking for a 1987 to 1989 Chrysler Lebaron Convertible parts car.

The frame for the convertible roof on my car ripped or something where the latch handle is, I don't know how to describe it. It's a peculiar phenomenon in which I never would have thought could happen. This happened because the vinyl roof on my car had shrunken which made the roof incredibly hard to close. I would have to use excessive force to get the roof to latch on. In doing so, over time it must fatigued the metal and it just snapped. Now I cannot latch the left side down. There is a picture on it attached.

So now I want a parts car for it that has a good frame with the vinyl roof in good shape, so I can swap the two roofs. I would prefer the car to be white and the roof to be black, however, I am not picky.

If anyone has one, or knows where I can find one in the Southwestern Ontario area, please contact me.

Thank you very much.
Mike

see item #8 header and latch assy

that unbolts (I assume) and that is the forward part of the top that sits on top of your windshield moldings

4386408 1987-89 and used up to 4-17-89 after that date there is another part # (4534450) listed...don't know if they are equivalent

call a Mopar dealer to find out


Car-Part.com--Used Auto Parts Market is a wrecking yard site that might be helpful

Well Thanks a lot, I appreciate it.

Also, the other reason I would like a car for parts is that there are other parts I could use as well. And just to have parts that are hard to find if I ever needed.

Question: Is the Header Panel category on that site the same as the header and latch assy? I could not find the header and latch assy selection option.
