That's a C6 Z06 and a C6 ZR1.

Both fixed, non-removable tops.

At a base price??? Don't think so.
Then get a body colored top and don't take it off. The vast majority of Vette buyers do not want a fixed roof. That's why the C7 Z06 was engineered as a Targa and a vert for the first time.

Given the very limited demand for a fixed roof model, adding one to the production line would actually result in a higher pricing structure for the Fixed roof than the targa roof models.

FWIW

Seems like you should be shopping for the "right-priced" C6 Z06 if you absolutely must have a fixed roof.

I have a body colored top. Color is not the problem, it is the noise that comes from the removable top and hatch area. About the only time the top comes off is when I have had enough of the popping and squeaking and lube it again. Fortunately, the dielectric has made a big difference. I just want a solid roof. You might be surprised at the market for such a thing.

I'm late to the party, but I used Dielectric grease on all the seals. Much thicker than the silicone. Even managed to get a little under the windshield rubber seal. I have a C6. Found one area of popping/squeaks around the rear hatch near the seat belt areas. You'd think that if we can put a man on the moon, they could take care of a few squeaks... :rolleyes:
