    Looks like a leak waiting to happen. Definitely not a dealer option.

    There was a canvas sunroof available on the Chevy Nova for a couple of years in the early 70's. (72 & 73)

    The "Skyroof" (Ventura II folding sunroof) was a factory option for a Nova and only about 10 thousand were actually built in those 2 years.

    They were produced in several different colors, to match the car, and each color had it's own RPO code. (in 72)

    In 73.. it was a single RPO number RPO-CF1.

    I would think it could have been ordered from a GM parts counter and installed by the owner (or dealer) on a Camaro.

    A member on this board (bbcnova) owns a Nova with this factory option.
    I've seen it and I am pretty sure it's the same sunroof that was installed in the Camaro the OP pictured.

    Didn't the 1970 Hurst sunshine special Camaro have a roof like that?

    A lady I worked with back then had a Nova with the sunroof. Yes it leaked no matter what the dealer did to it. After a few years of wet interior, she traded the car for a new Datsun. It also had a factory sunroof, and it leaked as bad as the Nova. Again, nothing the dealer could do would stop the leaking. So, that car had a wet interior as long as she had it too. Her next car had NO sunroof and it didn't leak.

    You're right! :cool:

    That car was a prototype and the sunroof was never a Camaro factory option.
    But it WAS offered on Nova a couple of years later. (Meaning... A dealer could get the GM parts for this option in the following years.)
