Asked by Sep 28, 2007 at 08:48 PM about the 1981 Ford Thunderbird

Question type: General

2 Answers


These are carriage roofs, basically just a vinyl or cloth hardtop made to look like a convertible roof. Nothing special or extra valuable about it, just an option that was popular in the late 1970s-early 1980s.


I don't think the roof comes off. I kinda off enjoy my car - in Johannesburg it turns heads. Any ideas how I can get some spares to South Africa. I intend respraying the car so I require the chrome fittings and stripes and so on.
