  • 1968 Mercury Cougar Golde Sunroof Top

    Hi, I am new to the site and I was wondering if anyone here had any information on the sunroof for my 68 mercury cougar. I need the cables that drive the sunroof and the golde guides part numbers golde 416-631 and 632 as well. Any information is much appreciated. Thanks

    Isidro, here is something that I dug out of The History of Golde Sunroof/American Sunroof Corporation (ASC). The last paragraph of that article states this...

    https://automotivemileposts.com/aschistory.html

    At this point, American Sunroof Corporation was doing quite well, and demand for their services was steadily increasing in the North American market, as well as in other parts of the world. It was later acquired by North American Rockwell, and is still an OEM supplier to many automotive manufacturers in the United States and Europe.

    You may want to see if you can find anything on North American Rockwell... You may also want to check out this website for sunroof parts.. Click on Categories on the left side to see what they have....

    Try googling this: Golde Top sunroof and North American Rockwell. I found a few things on eBay you may want to check into.

      It appears that the guides are available but the cables are out of stock. They also have a free download of the sunroof service manual if you need it.

        I never gave it much thought regarding what other FLM vehicles might also have Golde Tops other than Tbirds. It turns out a good number of other models did, including the Mercury Cougar... Here are a couple of pix of the Golde Top on them...
