    Default Rear Window

    Hello my Ruby brothers:sisters. The previous owner of my Ruby replaced the convertible top. The rear window is plastic (not glass). Did these precious vehicles come with a glass rear window or plastic (or whatever material it is)?
    Thanks.

    Mine still has the original top and the window is plastic.
    There is no replacement for Displacement

    Ok thanks. I just wanted to make sure that the previous owner didn't take the cheap route and replaced the glass with plastic. Thanks again.

    I can't check right now, Ruby is in storage staying warm and dry.
    I think the window folds to be able to stow properly in the space available.

    Yeah, all 1993 convertibles had plastic but they were changed to glass in 1994. Either way, no one knows when the top is down!!!

    Amen to that! Mine has never come out unless we have been able leave with the top down. Unfortunately there have been a few times we have had to come back with the top up though...
