I'm not sure they were ever available for the '86 Esprit. I owned an '86 and saw many others from that year, but I have never seen one with a glass removable roof. I know the newer Esprits have the glass roof, but the attachment points and I'm sure the dimensions are not compatible with the '86-'87 cars. If you do manage find one out there for your car, please let us know what you found.

I know a guy with an 87 HC Esprit, pretty sure his car has one. Don't know why it wouldn't fit an 86.

Actually, the OP probably has one in his car, and he's asking for the replacement, maybe, because it's broken?

I know that my old '85 did NOT have the glass top option - but don't know exactly when Lotus changed the design... my current 1991 SE of course does.
