I have a sun roof question

There were only 619 XR7-Gs built. They were built along side the Shelby Mustang, and were available with every engine and transmission offered in 1968, (except the 427). This was the first Cougar to be a part of the Hertz Rent a Racer program. If you have any information about these rare cats, this is the place to share. The XR7-G registry is maintained by Royce Peterson.

The XR7-G has the sun visor plastic center mount attached to the overhead console with a 1/2" spacer that AO Smith made from a block of wood covered with vinyl to match the Ohead console. Not sure if I have a picture.

Just checked I don't have a picture of the spacer. However I might have a good overhead console.

The pic I posted earlier is someone elses' XR7-G, not mine.

My G doesn't currently have the headliner and overhead console installed.

Attached is another pic I took of a very original G that was at Carlisle one year.

Thanks to everyone who posted here. The photos are all encouraging because now I know it can be done to look good. I think a previous owner must have changed the sunroof drive mechanism and that changed the geometry of how the console would mount. Obviously I'll have to find a sunroof expert in Colorado! Any thoughts or suggestions?

This is absolutely no help to you but -

This is a sign I drive by every time I go from our host hotel to the show field at Carlisle during the Ford Nationals show.

Been driving by this sign for years and finally stopped to look around and take some pics - obvious that they have been closed for many years.

God how I would love to be able to drive my XR7-G in there and have them service my sunroof!
