    I don't see anything here about T-Tops being available in 1974. http://www.nastyz28.com/camaro/camaro74.html
    Someone added fender flares, so they probably added the T-Tops, too. I guess there could be a small chance of the dealer adding them when the car was new, but I strongly doubt it. Maybe they're Corvette T-Tops!

    Here's a website about T-Tops like Hurst, Cars & Concepts, Fisher, and American Hatch installed on Pontiacs. It says T-Tops began on those cars in 1976. http://www.pontiacsonline.com/Those 70's T-Tops.htm

    No such thing from the factory. Aftermarket or transplanted roof.

    I f you are buying I would very much suggest when you inspect look under the top weather stripping and see how much rust is under there.

    Also I am not an expert at all these different types of tops, but I think parts are scarce for some of them, so verify what kind they are and make sure you are not buying something useless

    I have looked at the tops and there is no rust whatsoever. The cuts are perfect and smooth as is the headliner and board. This is not a back yard hack job. It has dual handles which is what Hurst has from what I have found in the internet. This car has been sitting for over 20 years. The flares are a back yard hack job so it does need quarters but the rockers floorboards trunk pan and rear frame rails are in excellent shape

    I have new front fenders that I bought years ago still in their factory box so the front is already taken care of the motor is a 4bolt with 2.02 heads The car I can get for about 800-1000 dollars. I have read somewhere that there were about 500 of these made. That is what I am trying to find out. Who and where and when. It's just like the opera windows that i never new existed until I actually saw some ( don't care for them) but they do exist

    GM did not make factory T top cars in 1974. Where did you read that?

    just make sure you look under he w/s. pry it up with a small screwdriver or something. I've seen t-roofs that look great until you look deep under the w/s.

    Can you get parts for Hurst tops? w/s, trim parts, etc? I don't know, just curious.

    I don't know if I can get parts. That is what I'm trying to find out I love the 74 and with ttops this is a bonus. Like I said there is no rust whatsoever around the tops

    I'd verify the brand and check all the parts are there. Maybe some better pics. Then maybe check with F Body warehouse and the other parts houses like camaro central or NPD to see what is available to you.

    honestly for that price just buy it, worst case is your part it out and make money.
