    Re: Show us your Allante

    This is my late 93 & man is it FAST all balls. I keep the hard top on most of the time. I just smoked an AMG Friday night. He did burn me off the line but just buy a nose. Once out in the open the Allantes low end torque kicks in & I was just gone. I could see in my rear view the AMG was giving all it could but in the end it's the low end torque that wins & not off the line speed. Also this other guy wasn't much of a driver ....later

    The rims on both of the last Allante's are really nice... I prefer the hard top.. Do they come with both?

    Yes and no. the 87-1989's came standard with hard tops standard. the 90-93's it was an option. I like the hardtops and am working on locating one for my car, but they're not the easiest thing to find (esspescially one that will work with the later cars latching system) although i may have a line on an earlier one that i can retrofit to my car.

    L.C.,

    i am with you. my Allanté has a HARD TOP and wouldnt have it any other way.

    to answer your question correctly, here i post a partial piece from my "Allanté facts"

    Stealth

    TOP, both - Manual front latch operation for 1987 to 1990, powered front latch from 1990½ to 1993. All equipped with glass rear window, electrical rear window defrost, and REAR pull-down.

    TOP - MINI COVERS - With the Phase II for the 1990½, the shape of the mini-covers changed. In models 1987 to 1990 ½ the mini covers were stored inside the soft cover boot well. On 1990 ½ the storage of the mini-covers was shifted to a pocket behind the seats.

    TOP, Soft - Canvas exterior and fine fabric insulating liner. Black ‘87 to ‘92 with two new ‘93 options: the Montana BLUE / ‘93 BLUE; 26T and ‘93 MAROON; 76T. Robins is the recommended source for replacement material. The BOOT COVERS changed with each Phase.

    TOP, ALUMINUM - Model years 1987 to 1989 were sold with both the “soft” canvas and “hard” aluminum tops. The aluminum top become an option for model years 1990 to 1993. Design of latches changed on Feb 1990 (90 ½ models) and those tops are known as the Phase II and were used until the 1992 model. In 1993, the Phase III top was introduced, the 1993 car now had no faux vent window, and the difference from the Phase II is ONLY the weatherstripping. It is reported that the weatherstrip for the Phase III is identical to the weatherstrip for the soft top. There is a consensus that for 1993 models, 330 cars were produced as dual-top cars (xPU10xxxx) but a total of 618 Phase III hardtops made in all. All 1993 hard tops are reported to have BLACK liners. Weatherstrip for the Phase III is now aftermarket item. All 1993 factory installed hardtops have vin#'s with the last 6 digits starting with 100XXX. All the 93's have VS in the vin#. In the earlier Allantés VS was a convertible only car and VR was a convertible that came with a hardtop and soft-top.

    My 89 with 20" Helo Ellegance wheels, and no they dont rub, i like the hard top look, but being in FL the top can be off almost year round. It's still a work in progress.
