What's a 9/10 Bestop worth?

No hardware, just top. No cuts, tears or rips and 3 windows clear and good. Value?

AB has new ones for <$1k, so probably $500 tops...

Hi, Rob-

Any photos available? I was about to buy a new one from Eric at AB, but if yours looks good, why not save some dough.

I have an RN one on my truck now that it came with, and although its not that old a top I guess, its in bad shape, leaks worse than any I've seen, and looks and fits like crap.

Thanks.

I don't as this is more of a feeler to see if I can get half a new top out of the two I have.

If I can get a grand for this and the hardtop I'll buy a new RN top for mine. Until then I'll need one of them.

I might be interested. I suggest taking some pictures, including fitted. Not sure what shipping would be to the east coast, but that may be a killer.

Unfolded top and took a closer look today and there are about four small piercings just small enough not to let your pinky finger through just above the rear "door" opening. Also has a 1.5" split in one of the seams on the back and the rear left side is missing the hard plastic belt rail attachment. Window attachment point should hold it down fine in this area though. Looks like it tore off clean. Windows are scratched and either bronze tinted or nicotine stained, you tell me. Otherwise they are good with no cuts and the whole thing is still very pliable.

So this makes it less than a 9/10 and probably more like a 7/10.

Doing research though I wouldn't take less than $500 for it.

Thanks -

Maybe. I put it on or at least the best I could. Even with three heaters and a warm garage it never stretched enough to go on completely and I added a few additional split seams/tears. I'll get some new pics up soon but I may cut it into a surrey top and keep it.
