That's a tough one. Even if you could find it in a salvage yard it would likely be as bad or worse than what you already have.  You would want a new one so I would try Buick/GM for starters  to see if they still source parts like that for that year/model, or the usual places like Rock Auto etc. Next would be Buick car clubs or collector sites like Hemmings. Good luck.

Yeah, that's a tough one. I don't believe the Collector's Edition had anything special about the vinyl top and subsequent bottom mouldings, so there's a chance one from any 77-85 should work. Of course finding them is getting tougher. There are some b-body-specific forums out there, so I'd try there, first.

In reply to jacksonc :

Are you going for Concourse style restoration or just nice?  Is there any similarity to Cadillac offering of the same period? I ask because I can see where there may be few Buick collectors/restorers but I bet there are many for Cadillac.  

Even if the Cadillac is not identical, maybe it can be adapted.

Try the local sunroof shop, they use to install the tops back in the day, they might be able to get the parts you need.
