D90 / 110 Hardtop Vertical rear roof ventss

From time to time, I have seen pictures of the rear of D90 /110's hardtop (SW) with what appears to be louvered vents (2) in the rear of the roof just above the windows to the sides of the rear door.

Anyone know anything about these, and at best, a part number?

Thanks,

Your link seems to be an interior type to spread A/C. I'm looking for a type that provides exhaust, an outlet, for the interior air.

Thanks,

As I was told they were kind of a replacement for tropical tops; vent to draw air thru the vehicle. Not sure how well they work....

I've got them on my 110, they do a better job of letting-in water than they do of letting-out air

Land Rover 'borrowed' them from the Austin Maestro Van (which explains their odd shape) -

The Maestro Van is the same vehicle that they 'borrowed' the tail lights from, for the 1989 Discovery.

Several of these vans were also used as 'mules' for road-testing the running gear of the prototype Freelander.

They have one at the Dunsfold collection - http://www.dunsfoldcollection.co.uk/gallery.php

Won't those vents just let the contagion in when the zombie virus is spreading?

I have them on my 110 as well, only because I used an old style roof panel.

As Paul says, waste of time... mine just suck in dust

Why worry about letting water in?

Might be worth checking marine vendors. Fav auto vent is the one on the sides of Volvo 245 wagons
