Help Identify this Hardtop plz.

So I bought this hardtop in NYC for 600$ it was in the attic of a 4 story building that was being demolished. I thought it would fit my 56' 356 Speedster but I was way off. I cannot figure out what year or vehicle this hardtop is from!? If anyone knows...

Look around the edges of the rubber seal, mostly above the door area to see if there is a manufacturer badge with serial #.

“Sekurit” essentially means “safety glass.” Not a brand name so no help there.

Try this, OP, as I did when my nosiness/curiosity overwhelmed my common sense as to not spending time on someone else's problem instead of the seemingly insurmountable mountain of my problems.
Viola'... I spent 2 minutes googling european car factory hardtops. First came a Bay M Vay 507 (way cool). Nope, Wrong, totally off. Then I typed in "Renault Caravelle factory hardtop", 'cuz I always liked them aesthetically. Now that looks closer by a bunch. I'm still not 100% certain, but at least you get the idea if you still shive a git about it.
Now where do I go to collect the prize money??

Looking at images of them after Leinberge’s suggestion, I would say that’s exactly what it is; Renault Caravelle hardtop. Probably a rare piece, but when was the last time anyone saw a Caravelle?
