headliner for '57 Buick Special Wagon

Recommended Posts

Well, I have exhausted my sources locally for interior parts...nobody wants to even try to tackle making me a new headliner for the '57 Buick Estate Wagon (Special)

So, I am looking to the Buick community for help. I know where to get the 'chrome' strips for the roof...it is the panels that I need. My interior guy threw out the originals (lived and learned from that mistake!) and the ones he made are ill fitting at best.

So, help me make my Buick Estate wagon beautiful again.

About about a year ago, I spoke with Wayne Meadlin in Ft. Worth. He was working on a kit that was like the original fibreboard headliners. He is listed in the Buick Bugle as a Technical Advisor for 1958 Buicks. His number is: (817) 737-0002

can't a decent auto upholsterer make one?

thats what i did for my 65 wagon

he had a source in Cali that made it to size and he installed it - looks good

or are you going for absolute correctness?

I am curious, where do you find the 'chrome' srtips. Would these be the same as on the 58 wagon?

I spoke with Wayne yesterday and he is going to make me the boards and the strips. Very knowledgeable and I could spend days on the phone or in person one day.

Dan: he asked me to have you call him. He wanted to talk to you again. He lost your number.

Thank you all for your help. I just get to wait for them to show up one day.
