Fieros were only available with dealer ordered T-tops in 88. Aftermarket kits were available before that. The 88's arent really "factory" either, but they were GM sanctioned.

Pre 88 t-tops are not uncommon (relatively speaking), but they are just as good if installed properly.

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.

If it's an 84 Fiero, it won't have the RPO code (on the sticker under the front hood, left wheel well) CJB. Only Fieros ordered new from the dealer in 1988 will have the RPO for t-tops.

All t-top Fieros have aftermarket t-tops from C&C, even the 88 CJB cars. The only difference is the 1988 seals are slightly different.

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.
