Variations – Headlinings

Early headlining material looks like this on the left. The parts book only lists one headlining well into 1962. However by the end of July 1959 this type of headlining was replaced by the more common type on the right. The early style head lining was replaced by this by 1960 but we have no change point. No 1959 car had the cream crackle type head lining.
