Re: fleetwood fake convertable?
Its just a vinyl top, its smack dab on top of your regular roof. The air ride is a horror to work with. I dunno where the compressor is.

yes, it is a vinyl roof , but it also has the "bows" of a real convertable, and there is snaps along the bottom, where a cover would snap on. I really would like to know more about it/. is it rare, what is this type of roof called

I have not been able to find this top treatment in my factory references for the 1991 Fleetwood. I am guessing it was an aftermarket custom installation.
I have heard them called Faux Convertibles but I am not sure if it has an official name.

i ripped mine off and molded a smooth rear window from a sedan on my 85 coupe, lots a work to remove but won't rust out now and looks better
