I've never seen one of these before....

A hardtop for a R107 with a sunroof?

It's off a 78 450SL, appears to be electric, has a pigtail next to the defrost cable on RH side, and looks like it's missing a switch just in front of the opening, maybe the size of a W123 rear window switch.

The sunroof is siliconed in, and the bottom of the top where it sits on the fender is rusty, but it's mine now.... I've got a couple of good hardtops, might be able to make one good one out of two.

I've only heard of this being an extremely rare option for the W113 pagodas. Couldn't resist grabbing it.

Anybody heard of one?

Jim

I have seen one other. It was on Craigs List several months ago. Red with tan liner. I think they were an after market item.

Our SL had one posted for sale not too long ago. It was a red one and the owner said it was a very rare option that was dropped due to it's increase in weight which made it very undesirable.

Switch in same position, forward of the opening.

Didn't pay near that much, though...
