Here is a roadster pickup

Here is a standard pickup ... which does indeed have a non metal top.

Fords had a non metal top for many years after the Model A ... in it's passenger cars. I believe 1937 was the first all metal roof for Ford. You have to understand that the factories did NOT have the ability to metal stamp that much metal ( one piece ) at the time. Just look at the sedan sitting next to the roadster pickup ... and check out the non metal roof.
