Parts for my Convertible??

Recently got a new 240 vert. I am having a real hard time finding oem/replacement parts for it. I am looking for interior plastic panels and parts, Center console parts, and also convertible top parts (frame and also the top). Any good source for finding these parts? Wanting to somewhat restore the interior to be in good working shape for now. Thanks!

Good luck dude, most NOS parts are long gone and the parts on part out cars are rarely in better shape than what you have. Check parts outs here, CL, FB and other forums. eBay can be a good source too, just don't take the price as 'in stone'; especially from scrap yards and salvage places.

Swap to S13 coupe or hatch doors and install manual seat belts.

Center console is the same as all other S13 except for the rear windows switch.

Rear panels can be repaired with a heat gun for warping, recover the centers, broken pieces are common though.

Any new replacement S13 carpet will work - hatch, coups, HICAS whatever. Look on eBay. Same for vert top - vinyl tops are under $200, canvas around $400.

Top frame parts - that's a tough one. Part out.

Good luck. Verts rule!

Sweet, thanks for the advice! I do plan on swapping doors and adding a roll bar/harness bar for a harness in the future when i get to them. My stock doors right now are also all messed up inside and both window motors are gone so they need replaced anyway. Its gonna be a long road to get it in great shape but definitely excited to build it. The small window in front of the top both also seem to be going out. It takes forever for them to come up and sometimes stop and cant go up for down and seem to freeze so im going to have to look into those aswell.

I swapped my very doors with hatch doors. It was very easy. I just pulled the hinge pins and realigned the lock side.

Thanks guys! Definitely looking into all of this! I have got a deal possibly lined up from a parts car for a complete top and frame in almost perfect condition. How hard or difficult would it be to reinstall the complete frame and top onto my car? He would have it shipped to me so I would have it all apart from the car before I had it. I have never messed with a convertible top before but feel that I could get the job done if I know what I'm in for. He also has the pump for it but don't know if I should buy that as well or not. Right now I am manually putting the top up and down and its not a big deal so if possible I would install the new top and continue manually putting it up and down. Right now the top does not come down when you push the button so idk what is wrong with it currently.

read the FSM section on the pump. If I remember correctly, there's a diagnostic check in there to help determine what's wrong with the pump system.
