****SEE BELOW FOR PICS*****
saw this on another forum; layitlow, and wanted to know if anyone here has some info on it or where to look. I tried doing my own search and came up empty handed.
Is it a special order through dealer only?
Here's link http://www.layitlow.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=576682

I was on the site right now, and said to try again in 5 minutes. I'll see if I can save the pics and post them here.

It's the side window treatment that I've seen on others; maybe a special order?

That looks like a dealer done custom top. Judging from the photos, it looks like one of the better such jobs. In NYC Potamkin Cadillac used to do the same to Coupe DeVilles and Calais Coupes in the 70s

The dealer didn't do that. That car was redesigned by one of the thousands of couch-builders, who customized Cadillacs during the '70's and '80's. The Coach-builders usually used Seville or Eldorado bodies, but some worked with the full-size cars.

Is there pictures of what the rest of it looks like? That's the kind of stuff that companies like E&G sell that dealers and other shops just stick on.

I can tell you it's in Victoria Australia from the number plate and the fact there is a green Aussie GT Falcon in the background... ;)

only thing I like are those chrome trunk belts. I found some but they were pretty rusty.

Not digging the trunk belts but the side window treatment is cool.
