    Default 1980 Junkyard coupe with carraige roof

    Went to the local PnP last week after seeing a post on a local FB group with back end of it in the background. It did not show up in the inventory.

    3.3 Inline 6 coupe.

    I found the build sheet also but it was oil soaked and pretty much illegible.

    Interesting is what looks to be an aftermarket carriage roof added to the car. It has non-OEM custom interior and exterior moldings etc. Wondering if this was a dealer or other addition.

    Any thoughts?







    Fit inserts around the rear window. An extra molding on the inside of the quarter window I've never seen.

    So it came with a carriage roof. Is this the factory look or a replacement along the way? It does not look like the ones I have seen previously.

    Yes, it came from the factory with the carriage roof option. Haven't seen enough of them in original factory shape to know what's factory and what's aftermarket replacement.

    I think the 79-81 just had a vinyl top. I've seen some of those but, not one like this. Guessing aftermarket.

    It had a carriage roof from the factory assembly plant. Carriage roof was an option in 1980 and 1981. Vinyl roof was an option in 1979 through 1982.
