Are there no "reasonably" priced parts for convertibles? My god! $100 for a 3' piece of wood!!! Co's looking to get rich or what? Restoring a 71, gonna end up a chop top! Any used parts? Need all except frame.
Help!!

Yeah, I know what are you talkin' about! Speaking of high $$$, consider yourself lucky that you didn't start restoring an early vert. Anyway, heres what you can always do in sucha situation:
  1. Find another vert as a donor vehicle
  2. Try to fabricate all the missing parts by yourself. All you need are some basic tools and a good machining shop in the neighborhood.
Where are you from?
