I've never seen this before, but the interior installation is convincing.. Is this an aftermarket installation, or was this sunroof an option for the '96 year model?? Question

I've seen that somewhere before on a couple of wagons in pics. I have NO idea why they would add a sunroof that blocks the vista window. Why not just the simple pop up type? anyways it was either a factory or dealer option. I'm not sure which. That looks like a nice wagon!

I'd like to see one that does not require the blocking of vista.

Aftermarket. Zero 91-96 B cars got factory sun (moon) roof installs.

Thank you, I thought that this application looked rather impractical for these cars!! Very Happy

I wonder what gm's reasoning behind that was. I get it on the rmw, but it seems like a lot of ss/caprice/non vista wagons owners would have ordered a factory moonroof if they could. Maybe a caprice wagon factory moonroof would have outsold vista buicks...

Didn't the fleetwood have one available?

Yes Fleetwood had an optional Astro roof.

Also available on box body cars but it was a pretty rare option.

I've seen this on a salvage-yard car. Looks to use a Caprice headliner and then the power moonroof. You lose the Vista roof. Odd but have seen it!
