Roofing

Question: is a tbar roof is that convertible for the side top parts of the roof and does a camaro and sunfire both all have them

Answer: A T-Bar roof was generally done on a 2 door coupe body style in the 70s and 80s…. it was called a T-Bar roof becasue you had 2 square-ish glass panels that could be removed from the roof – one over the driver and one over the passenger – and could be stowed in the back of the car… it was kind of like a lift-out sunroof… the shape of the roof (from above) with the panels removed LOOKED LIKE A T… hence the name….

Currently, no new car models have a t-bar roof…. The Camaro had them optional in the 70s and 80s…. the Sunfire NEVER had them… it was, however, available as a convertible…. There was a 70s model Pontiac called a SUNBIRD and that may have had a t-roof option….

Here are some older cars that had the t-roof as an option:

Pontiac Firebird/Chevrolet Camaro (70s/80s)
Chevrolet Corvette (70s/80s)
Subaru BRAT (70s)
Dodge Daytona/Chrysler Laser (80s)
Nissan 280/300Z/ZX (70s/80s/90s)

There may be more, but not too many….

  1. i have seen camaro’s ,trans-am’s and some older grand prix’s and cutlass’ with them but never a little front wheeled dive sunfire, i always thought they only came with a sun or moon roof at the most, in fact i don’t think t-bar roofs are even installed in car’s anymore unless it’s some custom jobby.
