    I put a tropical roof on my 74 Series III when restoring. I read somewhere they were not common on US import III's. Apparently they sold some with sun screens but very few with alpine windows and vents. I also read a few with tropical roofs originally intended for the middle east made it to the US but I can't find that reference. My roof came from an old '68 and I paid (great shape, just faded) $1000 for it. Cleaned it up, painted the roof itself limestone white, and the sunscreen white. Used the Badger Coach Works liner. Didn't need it, no it's not stock, but damn does it look Daktari awesome.

    The NAS series III tropical roofs had the sun sheet and alpine lights by did not have the roof vents. Pretty sure anyway. May not have had the alpine lights either.

    Al took his series III to Africa with us an he had an original NAS safari roof. Check the pictures (white truck) from our expedition. Iím sure it didnít have vents but I canít remember if it had the windows or not. That was 18 years ago...

    Hi Jim from CT. This is Jeff. You know that AL sold the White Series three years ago, I believe it now lives in Vermont somehwere at a ski resort. I still run into him when he comes back to CT. Cheers.
