Difference in these tops?

Please move if I've incorrectly posted...I'm looking at these two D90's (one is a 1994 and the other a 1995), and curious about the difference in tops, if any? I'm definitely a fan of the hard top, but would still like to be able to remove it. Which of these two tops is made to be removed? Or are they the same, and I'm going crazy. Thanks! Hope to be joining the defender ranks in the coming weeks.

The first one is a fiberglass top that is meant to be removed. The one one the right can be removed but is meant to be more permanent.

Those two trucks appear to be in two totally different price ranges. If the seller hasn't already told you, the 1994 is a soft top defender 90 with a fiberglass hard top fitted to it - a canvas soft top can replace the fiberglass hard top (that's what that black strip below the rear windows is for). It should have a full soft top cage fitted underneath that top. If it does not, then it should be drastically discounted as they are difficult to source. I can at least see the diagonals in the rear windows.

Either way, the 1995 hard top appears to be priced significantly higher than the 1994.
