So far I have only seen them on hatchbacks.  No wagons or sedans to date.  I had a 75 hatchback a few years back with a working crank back sunroof.  Unfortunately the car was too rusty to repair but I also kept the roof as I could not bring myself to scrap it.

My 73 hatch has a factory crank back sunroof. Works fine but tends to leak. Cleaned the drains but still have the occasional leak.

The roof and cranking mechanism work well. Just cleaned the drains out and that helped with the leakage but I really need to replace the rubber stripping for a better seal.
