1957 factory toneau cover snap on?

Discussion in '1955 - 1966 Classic Ford Thunderbird' started by Atropos, Oct 27, 2019.

  1. Recently purchased a Torch Red '57 drop-top. Lovin' it, but how does the factory toneau cover snap on?

    Updated your subject to summarize your post.
  3. It's been over 30 years since I replaced mine, but I believe you have to remove the chrome trim and garnish around the back side as the toneau is attached between the garnish and body.

    That is right the tonneau cover is clamped between the rear garnish piece and the body of the car behind the rear seat. There are two snaps on each door and there are also snaps at the base of the windshield in the chrome strip between the windshield and the dash pad. On the factory supplied taneau cover these front snaps are a part of the screws that fasten the chrome strip in place.
