Wierd 78 coupe for sale on CL in southington ct

What's wierd is that it appears to not have the wraparound window. I was under the impression all 77-79 coupes had the wraparound window. It also had a vinyl top. Did the vinyl top option delete the compound window? or is it an optical illusion from the pic angle.(ill try to post)

Yes the 77-79 had the wrap around window on the coupes. Also a brochure pic I have shows that the coupe would have the vinyl top but it stops just above the back edge of the of the rear side windows.

I like it too! a LOT. If you look at the bottom of the rear pillar, you can see the wrap-around window peeking out...

Everyone has a photographic memory; some just don't have film.
