I'm looking for a t-top for my 92 daytona, curious if they came with that option and if not is it possible to cut one from another car and replace the whole roof with a ttop roof? Only looking for the roof not a whole car

1989 was the last year Chrysler put t-tops in the Daytona.
Late 1985 through '89 were the years produced.
You'd have to custom install them if you want it.
Lots of cutting and reinforcing to do it but anything is possible I guess.
Yours being a '92 you actually could not use an earlier car setup.
'92 and '93 were very different from the earlier cars.

it can be done roofs are the same. you need to remove one from an 89 and down. it is only held in by BIG rivets. doors need to be cut at the belt line and braces from donor car added. this is a big fabrication job not for the faint of heart. and once you see how a t top car is constructed you may not want one. there is ALOT of cutting under all those mouldings.i am in process of one currently don't know why the guy loves his t tops.

Roofs on '92 and '93's are NOT the same as a '91 down.
Could probably make the T roof fit in but the mouldings would not work from
the earlier cars on the '92.
Sure anything can be made to work but would be tough to make it look correct.
The doors are different also on a '92 or '93.
You have to cut the tops of the doors off for t-tops.
Unless this guy is a fabrication genious probably best to not try this.

For that matter, it might be easier to take a 89 T-top and redo the inside from a 92/93. If you really are that hooked on the 92/93. Frankly, I find the 87-89 Enthusiast seats to be the most comfortable in the world but I have never sat in a 92/93. Good luck.

I have a complete t-top setup, roof, glass, seals, and headliner, all cut off of a 87 shelby. If you are intersested let me know and I will give you a price.

how is the roof different ??

the door top trim would fit after cutting the tops off the doors , but the interior door panel is higher on the newer doors so it might show above the outside trim line when viewed from outside the car

I have an 86 and a 92 parked side by side in front of the house
the only diff other than the front wheel well being streached at the front appear to be :

top back corner of fender is not as crisply shaped as the 86
black out on bottom of windshield is dif
trim around side windows is rounded at the corners
the relief in the door the trim fits into is rounded at the corners
tops of the inside door panels are taller ( the side window seems shorter from inside because more glass is covered at the bottom by the door panel)
trim around the windshield is diff

Considering the huge amount of fabrication this would require it's best to just say this is not something that can be done unless your an expert. Enough said.
