On a vehicle of that year, I would bet that the top is near it's useful life. The tops on them are usually padded, and should not be tearing from hail, unless it is deteriorated. I would seriously doubt that you can repair it with good results. I work at a Cadillac dealership body shop and see them all of the time from that time period, in that condition. Most of the ones that I see that aren't like that, I believe, have been garage kept. It may be the salty air here, but it is getting old.
