I don't have an MB 1st Contract and 2nd Contract Parts Manual to check if the numbers are the same....but I believe they are. Which means the tops would be the same dimensions. Farrell Fox has probably done enough research to answer this further but I believe you are good to go. A quick check of the websites of the major canvas producers would show a different number for the short windshield Slat Grill jeeps if in fact they required one.
