Good evening fellow members,
Id like to try and find some info on these extra chrome molding and the extra vinyl/painted roof, I can't seem to find anything in my books, or find on good old google. A gentleman in my car club has just given me a full set of All chrome moldings along the door/window and these as well,I can only see them on HQ/HJ only
are they a dealer special or a limited thing from the factor ?
Can someone point me in the right direction on where to look
Any help would be much appreciated

As I always say
Stay safe all

well there you go...staying at Peterbourough caravan park and there is a HX Kingswood with original SA plates and one of these roofs..never seen one before...strangely it has Landau badges on the side of the roof...spoke to the owner, he has only had it for 18 months, he bought it from Whyalla but doesn't know much history...first time I've seen one..

This was brought up on here in 2015 and it was put up by mackv8 that it was a "continental" roof option fitted by dealers not factory, no-one argued the point. Cheers

These were very popular back in the 70s, I have seen them in Queensland and Victoria.

Have also seen 1/2 roofs. Many also have the "Hinge" to look like a soft top.
