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.
