Default Do all the C5 hatchbacks have removable top?

Just wondering about this 'cause I'd rather have a hard top but I don't want a Z06.

Yes, every coupe has a removable targa top. You might be looking at non Z06 FRC which is a hard top.

But some come with two tops and some with either the transparant or the solid top. It depends on what the dealer ordered.

My 2004 Coupe came with a transparant top and I swapped it through this forum for a solid top and then had it painted.

Tops retail for about $900

Is the reason that you don't want the Z06 due to the body style.

The coupe does come with a painted top that match the car or a transparent top.

Corvette coupes, yes the topes come off. The hard top has the rear window that looks like a z06 and the top does not come off. They are a bit more rare than the normal c5 coupe mainy due to options that didnt come in them, heads up display i think cd changer. but they all come with the z51 suspension.

No, actually I like the Z06's body style. What I don't like is the price and manual transmission.

Then a FRC is also out of the question since it comes only in a 6spd also, so it looks lilke it maybe a coupe for you

All the coupes have a targa top - the '99 and '00 FRC does not and it is not the Z06.
