I looked at that one a day or so ago... I don't think any of the older Zs came with a sunroof (at least, I've never seen one). It seems like it'd be easier to buy a universal sunroof kit and install it VS. chopping off your roof from the pillars and welding on a new one...

I'm pretty sure that isn't a factory option...I never heard of one before. I put a good quality aftermarket sunroof in my first Z-car (about 20 years ago) and the results were just fine....no leaking, etc etc. Even so, I won't do it again, i never really ever used it a lot, and now I'm older and wiser, I realize that the aesthetics were kinda doubtful. And it absolutely needed a little "spoiler" at the leading edge of the opening when the galss was all the way out, or the buffeting and wind noise was intolerable.

Mine came with a glass one piece sunroof already in it. I ended up covering it with the darkest "limo tint" I could find to keep the sun out. I wish it wasn't there but I'm not going to spend the time trying to make it a slick top again. The one in that auction is some sort of aftermarket one, at least none of the US versions had a sunroof that I'm aware of.

That has to be the best after market sunroof I have seen installed on a Z car. I would KILL to have that one instead of mine. Mine is a big turd! I would have bought that but shipping would kill me.

I saw a 73 240 sold in Hawaii that had a vinyl panel that folded itself as you slid it toward the rear. I think it was dealer installed.

I think I am going with

VinhZXT on this one that has got to be a weld in from some other car. But have to admit it looks like it was well done.

Yes the vinyl sliders are after market installs.
