This product is a replacement pop top roof canvas for the Danbury original Type 2 conversions up to 1980.
Still converting Type 2s and Type 5s today, the Danbury conversion offered a simple Pop Top reminiscent of the Devon. There were several sizes of Danbury so we will need you to send us your old canvas or provide us with measurements. Call if you have any queries.
The original canvas on this model was a narrow red/white stripe, there were a number of loops fixed to the canvas at mid height by studs. These were to hold elastic which would pull the canvas inwards when the roof was lowered but these perished quickly and tended to be discarded. The measurements of the Danbury varied but typically were 2080mm x 1245mm.

If you are unsure of what pop top roof you have please send images of your vehicle so we can help to advise what roof conversion you have. If we are not 100% sure of what roof conversion you have we will still be able to supply you with a pop top canvas but will ideally need measurements and your old canvas.
