Whats the going rate for replacement T tops? Anybody selling? Grey with working locks is a plus
I've seen mostly complete t-top set-ups going for an "normal" minimum of $650-$750 for MANY years. i say "normal" minimum because it seems like there is ALWAYS someone who posts "i wanna pay $100" and someone else posts "you can have mine for that" then the next guy posts "the last set sold for $100 so that's what i'm willing to pay". I've seen sets complete with headliner and overhead console go for $1100, again MANY years ago. i guess that would put the glass panels at about $250 EACH minimum.
If anyone can buy a pair with new seals, locks, etc. for $250 a PAIR, that's the deal of the century. i wonder if 1963 corvette split window glass goes for $250 or 65 shelby parts can be had for $250 (yes i know those cars cost more than a fiero but the point is the same) ?
These are RARE parts; only about 1200 t-tops cars were made i think. in any case, replacements went out of production DECADES ago. I'd think that not many T-top glass panels are around anymore and no more will EVER be made.
If you have a t-top car and lose or brake a top, what the heck good is the car ? It's now a "parade car" ?
My glass panels are VERY nice and professionally tinted on the inside to keep from getting cooked by the Southwest sun, which is VERY hot without the tint. I'd sell mine for $300 each and that's pretty close to what i paid for them 10 years ago !!!!!!! i even have a set of t-top storage bags.
I've NEVER SEEN rare parts' prices that WILL Stay the same or NOT GO UP like fiero stuff. that's why i no longer even try to salvage 2nd gen. headlight systems, etc. Let them go to the crusher.
