I went thru some Mustang magazine clippings and found a few vintage Mustangs with sunroofs. One is an original, the other two are modifieds, and quite monstrous at that. What were they thinking?

These are full page scans, and are quite large. There are three Mustangs, the first of each series (1,2,3) are the article front page. The other pages are the rest of the articles.

Enjoy!!

I've got photos of Mustang wagons, pickups, shortened, limos, trailers, couches, wall hangings, 4X4s, etc...

I can only echo your sentiments: "What were they thinking?" The funny thing is that the sunroof modifications on both of these are about the least radical thing they've done....

Think you'll find that the "factory" sunroof was a dealer modification. And somewhat regional (not a large demand in the great mid states for this sort of thing. As always don't believe everything in print ;)

There were tons of aftermarket companies that popped up to sell parts that wanted to make their Mustang different for the million or more others

You may find that a number of the articles advertised during the period were never produced or at least a very small amount. One example was the removable hardtop for the early convertible and not the style we are use to but a fastback version.

Actually, the pop-up glass style sunroof is probably the best solution in terms
of a simple installation and the least likely to leak. A fully retractable unit would
be much more involved and would impinge on the headroom of the cabin.

What do you think of the file size and resolution of those images?

Was the file too big to download?

Could you read the text and see the photos well enough?

I've got a bunch of magazine articles I'd like to do the same with.
