I don't think so.  It came with the car when I bought it.  I'll have to take a look but my garage is a mess.

     What about calling some junk yards out west and look for a good original roof  ?  A buddy just bought a pair of AMD quarters and they looked really nice ,as far as the lines pretty crisp but they are not installed yet so fit is a mystery for now.....But for the price diff I would go with the AMD over Nos both will need some work to fit ......

No i havent called anyone yet,  im still stripping the car, and my list keeps growing..
you all can just call me tom hanks like in the movie money pit :(

Kerr,  if you have told us, I missed it.   Where are you located?  Maybe one of the more body-experienced folks on the site are close enough to come check it out and give you some advice?   Suggest where to get parts, etc...

That's a long way from me, but about the 'midpoint' of my drive to Carlisle or Fredericksburg each year.. :)
The good thing about that area, is that you should have a multitude of parts dealers from whom to buy your AMD panels, and do a little negotiating.. and even drive to *inspect* and pick them up and save on shipping charges??

I have a few used original parts.  PM what you are looking for and I might be able to help out.  I posted in your build thread too.
