Wanted: Coupe hardtop

I’m looking for a hardtop for the coupe. Black would be ideal but any colour would do.

Thanks

Wow: Interesting request. So did your hard top get damaged? I've never seen a coupe hardtop advertised. I'll be following your post to see what develops. I'd think if you watch this forum for a totaled coupe, you may have some success. I currently have 13 totals listed on the coupe registry, none recently.

You might want to post, for a coupe hardtop, in the forum tab under Coupe Discussion. I didn't see your name on the coupe registry. What is your vin number and location and I will put you on the registry, if not already there. Or are you actually looking for a hardtop for a roadster and just called your car a coupe, many do that including Cargurus. Thanks Mike

Thanks
since you are posting as a recent member, I have to ask this question.

are you search for a hard top to place onto a convertible,or
are you asking to replace an OEM hardtop for a car that only 1266 were made ?

when you say 'coupe' on this forum, we interpret that as a car 1 of 1266 like this one:

Sir William's Fleet
Mean 2007 NA 2007 Solstice ordered on 8/24/06 - Picked up on 12/12/06 - Totaled on 6/12/10
Mean 2008 GXP Acquired 6/21/10 with 1275 miles on it - Summer Solstice !
Deep 2009 NA Coupe Acquired 11/2/13 with 1040 miles on it
Mean 2009 GXP Coupe Acquired 8/27/16 with 9100 miles on it

I’m familiar with the above posted coupe parts. I don’t see the front portion, what we coupers call the hard top or the foldable one, the soft top. Hopefully the poster will clarify some of our questions.

My guess is that he is looking for a hardtop to turn his convertible into the kind of coupe that the rest of the automotive world recognizes.

Sorry. Yes a recent addition to my garage is a black 2009 solstice gxp coupe... 1 of the 1200 or so as stated. Only has a collapsible soft top. Not sure if the hardtop was lost or damaged or what but I would like to add one. Needs some other work as well but this would be the hardest to find since everything else it would have in common with the convertible

Welcome to the coupe group!! Good luck finding a hardtop. So what’s your vin # and where are you located?
