c&c t-tops

just wondering if a GTA with c&c t-tops is worth less then one with factory T-tops.I've never owned one and have the opportunity to purchase a GTA with 60k on it but it has c&c t-tops

Re: c&c t-tops

I have not observed a difference in values with C&C Vs. GM t-tops.

My personal preference is for GM parts, only because they are far more numerous, making parts a lot easier to get.

At this point in these cars lives, overall care and condition is probably a larger factor in value, in my opinion.

Re: c&c t-tops

yep I agree I passed just on that fact can't seem to swallow the small T-tops and that fact that they were dealer installed instead of factory.I've already got something better in the works anyways.....

Re: c&c t-tops

Okay, so I've been away for a while.

C&C vs. factory depends on the engine. I don't have the specific years in front of me but if you had a 350 and wanted t-tops, C&C was the only way to get it.

Re: c&c t-tops

I would not buy a car w/ C&C t tops.

Sorry, less value to the point of not considering the car...
