Sorry for the bad news, but there's no hard top available for 3rd generation Mustang's.

You could probably buy another mustang for the price of something like that...

If you were determined to have a removable hard top you could fabricate one yourself. Just go down to your local salvage yard or check out Craigslist to find a "parts car" Fox Body and cut the top off with a SawzAll. Then you'd just need to clean up the edges and attach some weather stripping and figure out how to attach it to your car. That would be pretty dope if you could pull it off

No removable hardtop for the 5.0 model unless you make one yourself.

Exclusive factory option on only 95 cobras and there were only 500 produced like that.

if you follow the advice above......

on thing to take in consideration.......

is the compromise of the car structural integrity....

in short there will be a need additional bracing to restore the vehicle's strength...
