34 Chevy top

Okay so I finially traded my Firebird for a 34 Chevy Sedan. It's a 4 door with the street rod chassis. Question-- On the roof was that a canvas that covered it. The wood rails are there that have been replaced. How is this sealed? I've looked for hours on the net & I'm not having any luck with photo's of the roof.

I believe it was the way the bodies were made back then, a roof couldnt be stamped as one solid piece. Thats what I always thought. But they are permanently fastened, so it wasnt meant to be a moonroof.
