Saved a complete t-top as stated. From first looks, I think it'll fit in my fiero. Only I.D. is the Chrysler penta-star & a few letters. I shaved off almost 60 steel rivets to get it out. The top glass fits the fiero side glass real well & the length(front to back) fit also. the frame contours lay on the fiero top as if it would fit. Just a shot in the dark. Any ideas? thanks

I wonder if it's more or less rare than the actual Fiero pieces.
Good luck. I hope it fits. Always good to have more options.

If you are ever in the Columbia area, bring one of your tops and we can see how it fits on a Fiero stock or CJB t-top setup.

Nelson; Yes Sir, I can do that. It'd be interesting to see what really does fit & did the same company make many of the t-tops for many other companies? I'm pretty much free most days & could make run over. Ain't but an hour & a half away. I know this is o/t, but do you have any 2nd gen Firebirds(wonder if those t-tops would fit in a fiero)?

2nd gen roof line is got much more of a curve to it, from edge of side to highest point , now a c4 targa top would be cool

Just a FYI the dodge daytona (glass with lock down bars) will not fit, maybe the glass itself not sure on that, the trim end caps will NOT work either, and the weatherstripping will NOT work from the B-pillar down towards the striker (it's molded on a angle, not straight down like fiero)

Thanks for the info. I've not actually chopped up a fiero to really see how far off the fit may be, so I should do a real test fit, then post the results. NOT being pissy here, just that I could may be of MORE help with real results for others to see. Again, thanks.

I fully agree w/firebird t-top non-fit. I posted over in the "other car" section about same. Just recently got back on this forum & I don't need a scolding so soon. Again, thanks.

Well Sir; after some thought, I've decided to MAKE the Dodge t-top fit my fiero. It's just that close & seals can be made to fit, no matter the angle of the dangle, curves, lengths, widths, etc. It WILL fit. Peace.
