Forum rules


Listings acceptable to post in this section are Caprice PPV's for sale by individuals, government entities (I.E. direct sale/auction/sealed bids), and the occasional car for sale on dealer lots (trade-in's for example) that do not normally sell Caprices. EBAY/Craigslist/auction site ads are OK for the above as well. Please do not post third party ads for cars on behalf of dealers that routinely sell used PPV's as part of their primary business. If you post a car for sale, please add the word "SOLD" in the header after the car sells as a courtesy to other members. Listings by members with under five forum posts may be removed without notice. Also please note our picture size limit of 1280x1024, larger pics may be moderated. Please check with a moderator if you have questions.

This is an odd bird, the car has a sunroof. Can't tell if it's an add-on or factory, looks factory to me. 160K miles with a L77 outside of Detroit. Here's the linky...

How does he know it's the only one in the US with a sunroof? We know very little about production numbers.
We don't even know how many 9C3s were made for crying out loud. That claim, in addition to the fact that the car has a lot of other modifications, leads me to believe that the sunroof is not factory.

How do you know? Did the seller tell you he had it installed?

There is no Factory installed sunroofs on these, that said i wonder how hard it would be to get the guts from a g8 gt and do it? Those generic kits scare me

Even if you could source the guts, slider, cables, panel, switches, drain, tubes, headliner, etc. the car's roof panel would need to have a lip formed into it for a factory fit. The aftermarket ones require the roof panel cut out and lip sealing ring installed around the perimeter. There are good shops out there that do good work. A few of the "aftermarket" companies actually supply the OEM's with the factory installed sunroofs. Having that OEM knowledge helps with the installation and warranty.

Regards,

Maurice
