I bought my regular top from Legendary.  It's very good quality.  I'd contact them(or one of their dealers) about a gator grain top. 
A lot of people will tell you to not put a vinyl top on your car due to rust problems.  There was very limited rust protection from the factory so a factory top could cause rust issues.  Most cars that are restored today get fully painted before the vinyl tops are installed.(the factory just primed the roofs)  I highly doubt you will have any rust problems from a newly installed vinyl top in today's world.  We take much better care of these cars now.  :2cents:

I, figure at my age  the car is already over 40ty yrs old by the time the roof rusts out again it will be someone elses problem. Im going for the cool factor!!!
