It looks like a giant sunroof. Structurally its as strong (the dealer said its stronger) than the regular roof. If you have ever been in a targa top corvette, its very similiar but probably twice as long.
I would be more worried about a convertible than the glassback.
Thanks for the info. I still have yet to find one purchased the same year as mine. I have the 2006 version and I love it. But.....one of the reasons I loved it so was besides it being a Mustang was the fact that it was a little different and sexier than most Mustangs, now with everyone getting one I may have to change up to something else. If this is a special car since it is a 2006, should I keep it??
I haven't seen a glass roof in person from the inside. Is there a built in sun shield or something so that you can cover it up on hot days? How is the head room compared to standard roof?
yep, there is a sunshade that pulls out (like a sunroof shade). There is probably an extra half inch of headroom over a regular coupe because there isn't a headliner. I rarely pull the sunshade because I park in a garage at home and a parking garage at work. The only times that I have pulled it were when I had a headache and didn't like the extra light coming in and parking outside for a couple hours on a sunny day.
Do keep in mind "Rare" does not equal "Valubable". Unless you can find paperwork to show it was a factory job to test out the idea or something... aftermarket roofs are far more likely to hurt the value than add to it. But for your own driving pleasure it may add considerable value and that's exactaly how you should enjoy it!
The shade does very well at blocking the sun if you don't like it...we had ours tinted with a clear tint that really helps with the heat factor. I love it and think that it is a good move for the mustang.
