Have you tried to lower top at all? does it raise and just not go into the trunk? If so, can you get to the reset button under the rear metal flap? If so, try to press it and with some luck the top will go the rest of the way down.

thanks, the top hasn't been UP for about 20 years. But your answer was helpful. We have someone working on it now, to get it up (hopefully)

When you say the top hasn't been UP for 20 years, do you mean it has not been open or not been closed? In my book up means it is in the trunk storage area. If that is so, you should be able to get to the button
