Re: [T3] '68 sqbk w/ sunroof $400

<x-charset iso-8859-1>I had the good fortune of acquiring a 72 Square w/ sunroof AND a 73 Square
w/ sunroof!
The engine in the 72 was good.  The body on the 73 was near perfect.

Sunroof parts are indeed hard to find.  West Coast Metric had a pretty good
selection though.  I think they also have a instructional supplement to the
Bentley manual.  A must if you have a sunroof.

The sunroof rocks on the highway.  I regularly cruise at 75 + mph with the
roof open.  It's as quiet as you might expect at 75, but the stereo fills
the gap!  I put insulation in every nook and cranny I could.  It definitely
helps with noise.

My square is also a daily driver. I love the way it handles and you can pack
a mess of stuff in there for roadtrips.

ps:  You'll smile every time you wave to your friends through the sunroof
