Cars and Concepts were marketing T-tops to anybody that would buy them. It's not exactly aftermarket, because the T-tops that you find installed in 84 to 87 Fieros by C&C are nearly identical to the ones that were ordered from the dealers. That's because the dealers had the cars stop off at C&C in Brighton Michigan to have the tops installed before they got to the dealership, (Option code "CJB").
As recently as a few years ago there were brand new kits you could buy to have installed in any Fiero. In fact, I would bet the rent that there are still brand new kits squirelled away by members of this forum. Every now and again one pops up for sale. It's estimate that 2,000 to 4,000 kits were sold.
So it's not an Indy thing at all. T-tops can be found in any year Fiero, but there were only 1252 with the "CJB" option code making them more rare.

Now, don't T-tops cut way down on rigidity? No bubble-burstin' intended; I wanna know if I'm wrong.
Some people say that it does, but it's hard to say. I did notice more squeaks in my car after the t-tops went in, but there were plenty before that. Unless I was auto crossing I wouldn't worry about it.
