Many used items in our picture(s) have been cleaned and/or bead blasted prior to being photographed to show condition and detail. The item you receive, in most circumstances, will be pulled from the donor car and shipped to you without being cleaned. We do not retake pictures each time a used item sells. Pictures are a good indicator of what you will receive, but not all used parts age the same. On high dollar parts, email us and we can send a few pictures of the actual part available.
"Core" Items: If we use the word "Core" in the title of the product, the item has been deemed rebuildable, but has not been rebuilt. The item you receive, in most circumstances, will be pulled from the donor car and shipped to you without being cleaned.
We ask that you call us on this one. Roof cut includes the roof skin, 'A' pillars cut about 4 inches from the top, rear or 'C' pillars cut below the leaded seam. We have plenty of inexpensive, damage free roofs that have never had a vinyl top installed. If you want the pillars intact this triples the size of the crate and makes it cost prohibitive in most cases. Longer cuts with long extended pillars add greatly to the cost of shipping. This is a perfect cut for a Cougar owner looking to replace their roof skin. We do not sell roof skins separated from the roof structures, as it is labor intensive to separate the skin and more difficult to ship.
We want you to keep something in mind: When shipping a roof, we have to account for a number of things including man-hours on building a crate, the charge for the truck that comes to pick it up, and the price of the air freight. In the end, you can expect to pay upwards of $1000 for shipping, and that's not including the price of the roof. Unless you're bringing a trailer to pick it up yourself, your best bet is to call around locally to try to find a Cougar nearer to you and work out something with the owner.
