  • Need headliner advice for '50

    On my '50 Champion the sheet metal headliner retainers above the doors are rusted to the point of being useless. This is not a part that shows at all in my body parts book. Does anyone know of a source for something that will work as a replacement for these?

    I'm not aware of availability, other than from parts cars. These pieces wouldn't be that difficult to fabricate usable facsimiles.

    I doubt SASCO would have them but it's always worth giving Dennis a call. Failing that, I would check with the many Stude dismantlers, accessible through your SDC membership. Ask at swap meets, like Reedsville next weekend. Folks might be selling parts that came from a car that's still sitting behind the shed.
