I found a car for parts and think I may get it. One thing it has is the GT sail panels in great shape. Is there any way to remove them without breaking them?

That applies to the notchback sail panels. The GT windows are held in with 3M adhesive tape, I don't think there is an easy way to remove them other than being very careful. Maybe if you were to use something like a small scraper made from plastic, that might work. Or use a fine wire or guitar string and angle it so it doesn't touch too much of the plexiglas, sort of how you would cut thru the adhesive on a windshield.

If they are original GT sail panels, there is a "fishing line" available for the sail panel removal. When the sail panels were replaced on my GTs, the installer used black silicon goop (used for windshield installation) to hold them in place. Like Will said, you can fish some nylon fishing line through to cut out what ever is holding the sail panels on.

Good quality sail panels (NOS) are nearly impossible to purchase, but there are some after market ones out there that look good.
