I've never seen that type of T-Tops (on 767rep's car).  Are those custom?

The T-tops were made for Chevy in 1976 for the 77 model,there was some fight between the vendor and Chevy and Chevy decided not to take delivery.In 1978 the glass tops were produced at the factory but there were few 77 tops that were sold by the vendor to the public.That is where my t-tops originated.

Yup...in mid'75, the original vendor & Chevy couldn't come to terms on $$$ and credit for the tops, so the original vendors went ahead and made/sold them as aftermarket items, some even thru the dealerships...
