It's hard to believe now, but vinyl topped off many North American sedans and coupes back in the day. What was it about a textured vinyl surface glued to a car's metal roof that exuded urban sophistication for so many? The practice dates back to the 1920s when leather and canvas were sometimes added to fixed, steel roofs to simulate the look of a horse-drawn carriage's convertible top. By the 1960s, vinyl had become a popular and affordable option. Chrysler went as far as offering a "Mod Top" with paisley or floral designs.
