  • 1964 Headliner Perforated or Black Dots?

    I have a 1964 Lark hardtop. The original headliner is vinyl with black dots painted on.

    I have been told by two reliable sources that the factory had two different headliner suppliers in 1964 and that the assembly line installed both types. What type of headliner do you have? Can someone please verify that either headliner would be factory correct? Thanks.

    I've seen nothing but black dots so far. Not a small deal since the dots add $60 to the headliner cost from my supplier.

        Black dots for sure. Perforated went out in 1962, I believe.

                It was Dennis and Dave from SASCO that said both were installed in 1964. They are knowledgable but I wanted to make sure.

                I have a Phantom repro headliner that's perforated and what's in the car has black dots. Before going to the trouble to install it, I wanted to make sure that perforated was correct also.

                    Too bad this isn't the Corvette crowd, or someone would post exactly how many dots are to appear! [:0]

                        Well it is my understanding, that in 64, the printed dots where correct for a 64 Hawk. But if you like the look of the perforated, I would install that and be done with it. Nobody would really notice anyway, except some judge just looking for something.

                            After reading this, I'm gonna have to go and see if the headliner in my granddad's '65 Daytona has painted dots. [)]

                            I know the NOS one for my '63 is perforated.
