My '90 100tq has this. It also has pull down shades on the rear door
windows. I believe they were factory installed. This car is pretty
loaded and about the only thing missing from the '85 200tq I had is
the memory seats and the mixed cloth-leather interior.

The rear shade is mounted in a special rear window board. It would
probably be easy to install both this and the rear door shades.
