Let's talk pre-63 Sunroof models...Volkswagen did em right
No GHASTLY contrasting colours - sunroofs were tastefully & subtly matched to the body colour

This thread is for:
1] Period colour photographs showing original coded sunroofs
2] Pictures of survivor cars with their original coded sunroof still in situ
3] Shots of NOS coded covers

It'd be nice to state
>Paint colour
>Year

If posssible let's try to find out the VW official name of the coloured vinyl

Oh, & if you're lucky enough to own an original fabric sunroof VW...CODE THAT SUNROOF
