Re: 1981 124 Spider with Pininfarina hardtop.

Hmmm. I was wondering about that.
I do not have a folding top installed on the car, but I have one that will go along with the sale.

Re: 1981 124 Spider with Pininfarina hardtop.

Hi Mike, I bought the car without a convertible top assembly, but with the Pini top. I have acquired a late model convertible top assembly that goes with the car. Yes, the convertible top when folded down will allow the Pini top to be put on. This car had been stored in a garage for 12 years with a ...
