Went to the local U-Pick and found an 84 with T-Top. But the T's are not C&C. I've never seen another set like these. (I'll post pictures later) Who else made them for a Fiero? They want $45 a side but without knowing where to get the missing parts I past on them.

What parts are missing? Door and roof seals are the hardest thing to find. If these are good, take your time and save them.

Your best bet would be to take every piece of interior trim, all the soft rubber parts, and cut the entire roof off.

Ideal would be to remove the windshield and back window, then cut the A and B pillars so that you get the entire top. Make sure you get the door seals with it as well. Any idea how much they would want for the whole thing? What junk yard is it?

I've seen a few like that. Not very common.
Don't just get the glass, not many can use that type. As said above GET IT ALL ! !
The top seals should go halfway down the door opening, if not take the whole door seal.
Those seals are also different than what most of the rest of us have.

I wonder?????

You are in Michigan, they are similar but not the same as the C&C and the car is a 1984. Could they be a early or prototype top C&C did? I never saw anyone else do them and with C&C right there they could be a first or early set.

I know C&C did the first one on a Early pilot 84. Might want to check the build number in the vin.

I would doubt that these are C&C protos. While there are some simularities in the basic style they just don't look like what I've seen on other 84s.

They are missing almost all trim pieces, the lock assemble are messed up, and the door seals look to be there but I didn't look at them. Since they are not the common style I am not interested for myself (unless they prove to be something rare). If anyone is interested in them I am willing to help you get them. We would need to remove the whole top I am sure in order to not do any more damage.

I was also thinking this may be an early version of C&C because they look so close, no rear trim pieces. but the seals look the same and the exterior of the latch flows back into contour of the body, very interesting despite the poor condition. I hope more photo's of this appear with the panels removed, maybe without the headliner to see the frame. There may be serial stampings in the frame pieces. I would bet a dollar it is early C&C

The rear P seals are against the notchback clip but it all fits together and looks aged enough to be original.

You have to go get this stuff. Im not sure, but it may be rare. That's money in the bank.
