Rob--did this car have the aluminum pop-up deflector that folded down under the sunroof when the roof was closed? Older Porsche 911's use the same deflector. I'm trying to document whether this came on all or at least some of the '76 US cars...earlier cars have the fittings, but I've only seen one on a '76. Any other '76 sunroof owners please feel free to chime in.

Cheers

Mike

documenting 2002 details for future owners...

This car was an automatic, but I guess that also

INCREASED it's value.

It wasn't till AFTER I bought this parts car that I

discovered it. Had to pry the sunroof open and low

and behold (high-pitched melodic tone)

HALELUYAH!

this is on the '69ti, although I don't think it came with it. I believe it was purchased from the dealer though. I can't see any BMW part numbers on it, or any other identification...

I could take a closer look if it would help you?

Was told (don't know if this is true or not) that this was available on Euro cars but was not put on US cars due to safety regs (here's where it gets silly--) because a passenger might be hurt by it if ejected thru the sunroof in an accident/rollover!

I have 'em on my cars, but they came from early 70's Porsche 911's. I have only seen one "factory" installation, that on a '76 in an OK junkyard.

Dad was at the dealer, he thinks probably in '73 or '74 during a shop cleanup day. He was a friend of the owner, and he just got it passed to him, "if he wanted it..."

We are going to assert that BMW made them, and let Porsche use them, not the other way around. (although this has no basis in fact) It somehow sounds better though, doesn't it?

I've got all those subframes and steering stuff. I'm

still trying to justify saving the second set of all that

stuff. Besides, I did have to roll and steer and

STOP this car after going down my STEEP

driveway to get it out of here. The neighborhood

association DEFINITELY wouldn't have let me get

away w/ putting my car up on blocks on the

sidewalk. I had thought about it though. ;-)

One car I had before this one left in household

garbage cans and to the junkyard. Neighbors

probably thought it was stolen and brought to this

chop shop to be... dismembered.

also provided sunroof stuff for Volvo (and VW, I

think). Problem is, the corporation has been

dissolved for many years now.
