Tuttle, ok
Does anybody make a pop up moon roof to replace the factory moon roof in a 86 SS

Welcome to the forum!! As far as I know, no 4th gen Monte came with a factory moon roof. The options were hard top or T-top. I'd take it to a shop in your area that does aftermarket moonroof installs and such and ask them what your options are.

X2 on Blade's response. Local shop is going to be your best bet.

There was not a sun/moon/astro roof option for the 4th gen SS. I know back in the day, some dealerships were getting shops to install them though. Now, you could get one in the 78-80 Montes and they were available in 81-88 Regals (a college roommate had one), including the T-types and GNs (I'm not sure about the others brands). The true factor installed sun/moon/astro roofs had rolled sheet metal and no trim on the roof.

So the tell-tale for most all the aftermarket, including the "dealer installed" roofs, they'll have a trim piece on the roof's sheet metal - that is unless someone welded in a roof or roof section of a factory sun/moon/astro roof.


Original owner of 1985 SS black hardtop w/gray interior. Frame-on restoration in progress. 406 sleeper w/ heavily ported FIRST TPI. 1.875" headers and dual 3.5" Borla exhaust. TH400, Ford 9", anti-roll bar, and notched frame. Dropped 2", 18" wheels, and F/R disk brakes. 10-point cage w/swing-out bars, custom gauges, and audiophile stereo system.
