I think the info you have tells the story.
I do not think a Camaro would have had a roof product from outside the US installed by a dealer.
I do not think GM would warrant that product either.
More likely aftermarket by a customizing shop or upholestry shop.
Sorry  Sad

There were no factory-installed sunroofs, export cars or otherwise; any sunroofs were installed later by dealers or (more likely) by aftermarket installers or custom shops.

The Buick Skylark with a sun roof was called a Sun Coupe.  I know that was true in the early 70s.

I used to own a 70 Z28 called the Hurst Sunshine special that had a slide backvinyl sunroof. It was done by Hurst for GM as a test to see if they wanted to produce it. I think later it was a option on Buicks ?

There were factory sunroofs installed, but only on European assembled 68 Camaros.
None made or sold in the US.

I'd install a roof skin and a new headliner if that roof is an aftermarket.  Just my opinion though...

SkyRoof was a trademarked name for the roof used in the 72 Nova (and some other GM models). Correct RPO numbers are WV1 thru WV9. But it was *never* a factory US RPO (option) on the Camaro

Here's a 72 Nova with it: http://www.novas.net/classifieds/photoads/macfarland0409/index.html
Here's production #'s: http://www.novaresource.org/production.htm#1972

Someone had a whole bunch of NOS ones stored and they became available 10+ years ago. Not sure if that source is dried up or not.
