Thanks to board member Dale Hubbard I just picked up a '69 307 car (AC, PS, PB-disc, TH-350, STD MG INT) from the original owner. They told me that they had the dealer install the vinyl roof. It looks just like a '68 vinyl roof (no body color reveal around the drip rail).
First, anyone know how common place this practice was? I know vinyl roofs were very popular back then but have no sense of how often a dealer would install rather than order from the factory.
Second, I'd like opinions (I know, now I'v e asked for it). When restoring the car should I replace the dealer installed top or omit it to match the original factory build?
