Re: Ranchero Hard Cover (tonneau)
Was a firm out of east side of Los Angeles area who was selling spring loaded Tonneau covers made out of some vinyl. My neighbor had one for his GMC and it used to latch in combo with the tailgate somehow. I contacted the company for one to fit my 1960 Ranchero, and was told there were 2 ahead of me, but still needed ten to go into production.
I settled upon a common soft top made up from an aircraft engine shipping hood. Added snap studs along chrome edges, and T types along back of rear window. Lasted for ten years as such.
Never heard back from firm taking the reservations.
