Bestop History

Bestop has been serving the automotive industry for over 50 years!

Back in the fifties, Thomas Bradley picked up and moved his family to Boulder, Colorado. Having worked in his fathers California-based auto upholstery shop, he founded his own shop in Colorado. The business was a success - but he found, unlike California, the winter months in Colorado were maddeningly slow.

So he devised a plan. He designed and began producing replacement tops for Jeeps to fill the slow times. Soon, however, his "fill-in" business began to outpace his upholstery revenues. So he sold the upholstery business to concentrate on the replacement top side of the business. Smart man. He called the new company "Bestop" and moved it into an unused school house at the edge of town. There, fabric was cut on wooden slabs made from the lanes of a razed bowling alley. Sewing machines whirred and welders crackled, turning out up to 25 tops per day. Bestop tops were soon being sold all over the U.S. and, shortly thereafter, around the world.

Bestop has prospered over the last fifty years with the help of countless individuals and organizations. Thanks to all. And this promise: Over the next fifty years, we will continue to deliver the engineering, the quality and the innovation you have come to expect from Bestop.
