|Hurst Hatch||Fisher body T-top|
The Hurst Hatches are shorter and narrower; the rear edge of the Hurst top doesn't quite reach to the rear roof pillar and the T-top itself doesn't reach as far toward the centerline of the roof as the Fisher body T-top. The Hurst T-top can be identified by the words "Hurst Hatch" on the outside corner of the glass. These tops have two latches on the outside corners. (Click here for a close-up of a Hurst Hatch.) The Fisher body T-top has one lever in the center.
The space saver spare N65 was required with T-top cars to allow enough room in the trunk to stow the tops.
In the late 1970s, a company called Cars & Concepts (somehow connected with Hurst Shifter) manufactured a T-top roof. These T-tops could be had as a dealer installed option. They can be identified by their almost rectangular shape, physical size (larger than either the Hurst Hatch or the Fisher T-top), and "glass to glass" design (they are separated in the center by a narrow piece of aluminum which runs down the center of the roof). At least one car (a 1980 Sport Coupe) with this option also came with the space saver spare.
