Ebay shows 3 available kits, they all seem alike, yet one is more than $200 more than the other. Does anyone know the difference?

thanks

Individual ebay sellers sometimes are good at what works were -- other times not so much!!!!

One thing about buying from a Corvair vendor is parts are usually correct, and if not they usually fix it or refund without issue.

Well, looks like the "high price" is Steele Products - who reproduces(?) or possibly resells(?) weather strip products for all kinds of old vehicles.

The other looks like a reseller that is trying to get rid of the last of his inventory? - "Last One" by item.

Looked some more: Clark's convertible top W/S is same price as lower price ebay version.

Checked Steele's website and it states that their convertible top w/s have steel core. So, that may be the difference in price???

Someone who has used Clark's would have to confirm if that is actually the difference.

There were two different companies that made the vert top seals when I was running the shop. Steel was more expensive vs Metro but quality of both was top notch and both had metal reinforcements.

Going to the their respective pages shows about a $100 difference. Of course that it is the standard Retail Price. Vendors with accounts get discounts based on their volume (in most cases) and the MFG will never undercut their vendors (or normally do not)
