Need help identifying hardtop

I recently purchased a 1979 CJ5 that came with an aftermarket hardtop. The top and the doors are made of fiberglass and the word "Classic" is molded above the rear window. It is a well made top, but I am not a hardtop kind of guy. I would like to know who manufactured it and what years that it will fit, so I can accurately advertise it for sale. Thank you in advance.

It will fit 76-83, not sure of the manufacturer.

Adjust recently paid 600 for a similar acme that needed a little work.

A nice good condition top and doors for a CJ5 like that around here would go for a easy $1000. They are hard to come by, let alone hard to come by in good shape. If I were you I would stash is somewhere and not let it go. My hardtop only goes on during the winter and really extends the time I can drive it.

I've got that same top on mine right now. I would price yours, with doors, at an easy 500 bucks, if not closer to 1,000.

Make sure to give the new owner the door latch brackets that bolt to the tub...they're unobtanium, I had to fabricate my own.

It is a great top, and the only one I've seen that lets you run the doors without the top.

I think you would be a fool if you sold it.
EDIT
I mean that respectfully.
