cloth top on a 96 thunderchicken?

So. ....I've had a 96 tbird for a while now. Never driven winters. Been a great car. So I'm thinking of selling it since my red svt replaced it and I already have 5 rigs I drive around lol.
So I hit the net because im curiuos I've never seen one Like this.

White 96 Thunderbird roadster with a cloth top. It is not a convertible. It has gold pin stripes and the roadster is cursive and written in gold. 3.8v6, 4spd auto, 109k miles.

Wtf....help. I can't find one online. Though I'm not the most proficient when it comes to search engines. But I cannot find one without a metal painted top. It was purchased as it is now from a ford dealer with 13k miles and been in the family since 96/97
Anybody seen one of these unicorns?

Ill post pics in the morn when I clean er up!

During the 90s the last gen of Thunderbirds and Cougars were a car a lot of dealers like to do dealer add ons to like tops and pin striping. Probably was just a dealer add on that someone paid for.

You guys should come down here to Memphis, I've seen that a lot. It was very stylish in the 90's in the same way as 24" rims on a Focus sedan are stylish today, tasseled headliners, or stick-on air vents, etc.

I don't think it was factory but it could've been a dealer installed "soft top" option.

Roadster tops

The roadster tops were all aftermarket. I have worked in car dealerships for almost 40 years and have seen many of these on all different makes and models On Cadillacs and Buicks many dealers would also add Vogue tyres (sic) with the gold stripes. I imagine you could still get this done, but it seems to be not very popular any more.
