Not all of the repros have the narrow shallow groove. The ones at Tamraz & Parts Place look closer.
According to their ads, Tamraz shocks are made in Taiwan & Parts Place shocks are made in the USA...Joe

Wasn't the linkage different? A friend installed a power top on a '67 and it never worked right. He was told the arms were different.

Can some one chime in,
Is there a difference from power to manual?

Mike is there a lip around the bottom of the upper tube on the NOS shock? Seems to be a faint line there.

Are there any known 68 black 712 interior with white convertable top ?

Lots! but after 45 years, I'd say 90 to 95 percent of them have been changed to a black top! No one seems to like the white tops anymore!

I do but I do live in Arizona :)....Joe

 If I remember correct....if you got a white convertible top, the well liner was still black so as not to cause a white-out effect reflection in the rear window as viewed from the inside. Somehow I remember John Z mentioning that.
