Did the old viper even have side windows?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rpvxR...elated&search=

from this epise of top gear it seems to point out it had no trunk, but then it goes on to say the new one improved with "windows" and adjustable pedals.

Is it reffering to power windows, or windows at all.

Finally did the old viper convertible have a soft top? The answer to this is probably no.

I ask because I have never seen a photo of a generation 1 viper convertible with it's side windows up.

I don't know about the windows, but I'm pretty sure that the original Viper didn't come with a soft top. I've never heard that it didn't, just never heard or seen that it did.

I was under the impression that the original Viper had windows...you just couldn't roll them down. It wouldn't make sense not to have windows at all, the drag would likely outweight the performance gained by the tiny bit of weight taken out.

I'm sure the first generation RT had a soft top....maybe I'm wrong?

The original Viper RT/10 from '92 to '96 had snap in side curtains instead of windows. It was an ACTUAL roadster, in the form of the original 289/427 Cobra, Porsche speedster, Austin Healey 100/4,, Bugeye Sprite, and more.
