Default '57 soft top options

I would like to add a soft top to our '57. I think it had a soft top at one time but I'm not certain.

Did '57's have a power soft top option?

Soft tops for all three years were manual.

Besides a factory top, Prestige Tbirds sells a very nice top that looks good, is well made and is reasonable in cost. I had one for quite a few years until I replaced it with a factory top when I redid the car.

If you buy an original top be sure the swing bar and the mounting feet (for the bar to the floor of the car) are included with the top.
