Robbins and Kee are two quality top manufacturers that I know of and have used in the past.

Original was vinyl with glass window.

Is it the pad that is hanging down? That's a strip on each side, about 6" wide, that acts as a cushion between the metal frame and the top material.

Ah, the cotton(?) backing material is disintegrating. That happens over time with heat and humidity. Definitely new top time.
