Does anyone recognise these vette T tops ?

I found these C3 vette T tops in a guys pole barn ( When I was working on his vehicle) he sold them to me for 30 bucks, they fit my '77, does any one know if these are G.m.,or optional or an aftermarket product or if they were a limited production ?

Here's some pic's:

Google search for "Saratoga tops" thats the only company i could find that made these (same style yellow vette but different wheels and no apparent option of white on the ST units)

I saw some stuff on another forum how they were supposed to be sold through GM but they never hammered out an agreement and they just wound up selling them aftermarket instead

And that marroon set i posted above ... the price for them on craigslist is $1000 ... so i would say you got a good deal on yours.

I already new about a company that was supposedly Making T tops for G.M. and there was a falling out years ago (maybe your right and it was this company). I was curious , at cruises & car shows all the vette owners ask me about em and I didnt know what to say!Now I do. thanks
And your right it was a fantastic deal. I was in the right place at the right time! All I had to do was wash scuff & shoot em.

Thanks again,
