Correct headlining for my 65 GP


Question

Hi Everyone, if you're still talking to me I'd like to ask a question. I'm currently shopping for a headliner for the GP. SMS kindly sent me some material samples, but their headlining sample is the recessed star one. My car appears to have been factory fitted with the double perforated type. I love the look of the star type - how cool are little stars above your head?

My question is - was the star pattern offered after 1964? I love it, but don't want to commit the Eighth Deadly Sin by installing the period incorrect pattern. If I have to go perforated, no sweat, but was the star pattern a factory offering in 1965? Your responses are always appreciated.

Hey Fitzy, according to Ames Performance which is where I got mine for the 63'. 64 was the last year for the star headliner in the GP. For the 65' model year it was Perforated. Ames part #PA531. Hope that helps

Hi Wrongway (great name!) Thanks for the response. I have the Ames catalogue and also noticed that 1964 seemed to be the last year for the star pattern. I emailed them and asked if they'd manufacture a headliner for me in star but am still waiting for a reply - they're probably burning an effigy of me as we speak to drive out my demons of 'improper choice.'

'Sigh' I guess I'll have to stick with the double perforated, although I'll choose black even though my original was silver. There's something very 60's about a total black vinyl interior.

Hi Wrongway, I emailed Ames and yes, they will custom make me a headlining in the black star pattern. You are right - I WILL make it mine. If we have 6 of my model in the country, I'd be surprised, so the chances of offending a Pontiac purist are gonna be mighty slim!

Congrats Fitzy. Be sure to post some pictures once you get the material and get it installed.
