Those are quite a rare option. One of the guys in my NOVA has one, if I remember correctly.......

bigblock454camaro 12-29-2006 07:45 PM

Is that a factory option? I can't say that I've ever seen a Nova with a factory sunroof except maybe the '87 corolla/nova :rolleyes: .

poncho62 12-29-2006 07:46 PM

It was a factory option...It was a vinyl cover, I the old VW ones.

A folder...

Yep, it was available in 72 & 73. Kind of a neat rare option. They had some that were on rally novas too! :mwink:

Man I learn something new everyday. I had no idea they had those back then. Today they are known as sliding rag tops or folding roof. Recently there was a lawsuit between Nissan and a sunroof manufacturer over the use of the term skyroof. Useless info I know. Anywho, goto an uoholstery shop in your area that installs sunroofs and they can do it for you. I know the manufacterer I use, won't allow us to sell the roofs seperate.

I have a 1967 Nova wagon with a Golde folding cloth sunroof that was installed in 1967 by the original owner.

Believe it or not, I have some N.O.S Sliding ragtops for these cars. They are new in box left over from the seventies, and surprisingly in perfect shape. My supplier got ahold of them, I am selling them but trying to get them to Nova and Apollo owners instead of the lowriders that were buying them up. I have limited seventies colors and quantities available... like the cool green/ dk greem combo!! We can also have anysize (non-original) tops made in canvas or vinyl.
Check out our site

BTW, this is my first pos, great site... :welcome:

ragtopsonline 11-01-2008 05:46 PM

Apearently... I can't tell you where to get the ragtops. I have them, but I can't tell you, especially if you are needing one for a restoration, and can't find one... I am not allowed to help you out. SooooRrrrrY. lol I don't even know if I am allowed to tell you to email me if you want to know. :nono:
