Anybody recognize this top. It kind of fits my MK II Midget

It was stacked on top of the pile of stuff I got with my "free" 64 idget resurrection project.

If anyone knows what this is then they will also be telling me what it is that I have on my '69 Sprite.

The front fits perfectly.
The rear seal needed two layers of adhesive weatherstrip.
I had to refabricate the rear clips & bolts.
It's a little heavy, but very strong & visibility is great.

I saw a picture of a Lenam top that may be the same, but I suspect this one is a copy.

(edit) I was tempted to leave the 60's rainbow decal, but it was badly faded.

looks like a factory MKIII Sprite, MKII Midget top. Hard to tell, but it might be for the later "convertible" body...

I just found this picture in a 64 sales advertisement.
