1975 trans am power sun roof
« on: April 21, 2010, 07:53:54 PM »
i have a 1975 trans am with a power sun roof in it

it is like the type that came in the 72-75 grand prix & cadillac

i talk to a trans am parts supplier he said that a company called asc installed these
type tops at the gm factory on a few  just woundering how many are still around

this car was bought new in calf.

THANK YOU FOR ANY AND ALL HELP

your car is the first bird i have ever seen with that in it. I think it looks very nice. Alot better than a typical sunroof. I also like the silver and burgundy combo.

ASC did a lot of installations like that back in the day.  They were pretty good at it.  Sometimes the car makers had arrangements with them so people could order stuff and the factory would take care of it all (make the car, then ship it to ASC for the specified modifications), and other times dealers would work out their own arrangements outside of the factory process.  Probably the way to find out would be to get the PHS documentation and see where the car was shipped to when it left the factory.

Usually those sunroofs look like crap.....but I've got to admit...yours looks great.  I doubt it was a factory job....probably a dealer add on.  But it's so well done I guess it's possible the factory could have ordered a few.  And, it's just before they introduced the t-top.  Could they have used this as a prototype to determine if a sunroof would be used instead of a t-top?

Anyway, it looks great.  Nice car.
