We need to replace the headliner in our 1966 Dodge A100 Sportsman Van. Any suggestions?

I have always been partial to a light wood colored ceiling, or some kind of furry animal print. Whatever you do will be a home-made custom job.


Windows- they're what make a van worth owning!

Hello Annie, Welcome to the Site.

I redid the headliner in the EXT with "Barnwood" paneling. I attached it to the roof ribs with screws, put varnished old fence pickets over the seams to match. I used adjustable poles that cabinet installers use to prop up uppers. BIG help.

It's not real wood, but it looks decent. I may have been able to find a thin wood veneer instead of the paneling, but I'm happy with the way it turned out. Saved a ton of $$ and managed not to screw it up.

Have Fun, and Van ON!
