We recently purchased a 1997 Camaro convertible. During the buying process we noticed that there was not a boot for the top. The owner said he never had one and didn't think they made one. After looking in the owners manual I am quite certain there is a boot of some kind. Could any readers provide some insight? I think form the owners manual it comes in a pouch and is three pieces of plastic, but just not sure. If anyone knows or has a part number that would be very helpful. Thanks, Ted

It's 2 or 3 pieces of hard plastic and should have a storage bag. Stop by your local Chevrolet parts counter and they can set you up with the part number and the part for that matter...

Dennis, Thanks for the quick reply. At least now I know there is such an animal. Unfortunately the dealership I talked with is about as confused about the boot as I was initially. They just don't know what is the correct piece(s). The illustration they have isn't all that good and its hard to be sure. One parts guy described the part as "folding top cover, rear support kit," but when the part number was looked up the illustration just doesn't look right. Thanks again, Ted.

I saw a 2001 SS convertible that had either a two piece or a three piece hard plastic boot. I'm guessing that it would be something like that. The guy didn't like it because he said it looked cheap. He wanted to get it covered with leather. It was made of a hard, and flimsy looking piece of plastic. I hope this helps.

They definately do exist - I have a 1997 Trans Am WS6 Convertible and I have the three piece boot cover. Comes in a soft line carry bag. Overall not a bad piece. Should not be hard to find one.


Admin Edit: Sorry no selling allowed in the forums...

Thanks all. I finally got the parts numbers (although they had been updated) directly from another convertible in a dealer lot. I then went inside and had them run the numbers. If anyone is interested 3 piece plastic boot, one naugahyde storage bag. Part #s 10294890 12170 left, 10294891 12170 right, 10294887 12170 center, 10193284 13450 bag, Prices are out of this world. list is 853.33 for the set!!! I paid less than that for my first running, no# matching 66 big block Impala SS convertible. Times change. Guess I'll be looking for a boot. Thanks for the help. Behncke

I punched the part numbers into www.gmpartsdirect.com, and here's what I got:

10193284 - BAG F/TOP $169.38

10294887 - CVR-F/TOP $233.04

10294890 - EXT-F/TOP $37.26

10294891 - EXT-F/TOP $37.26

$476.94 total....$307.56 without the storage bag. Much better, but still pricey. Now we know why the convertibles cost so much more than the sport coupes!!
