    RA29 Interior Question

    Okay, so who has an unmolested all original Celica GT liftback?

    I'm the second owner of my car, which I've had for over 20 years. When I got my car it was a trade-in at a dealer and they redid the headliner before I took possession of the car. The headliner has held up well but it is starting to sag. I would like to get it fixed, but I've had differing responses as to what kind of headliner was original to the car. My current headliner appears to be vinyl (one piece). I've been told it was originally vinyl, and also told it was more of a fabric (felt-like) material. Anyone know for sure?

    I'll try to get a picture of my headliner uploaded ASAP.



    Thanks for looking and responding.....

    Sorry, I can't help you on the headliner question, but what a thoroughly beautiful and unmolested RA29...!! :shock:
    It's great that there are still cars like this out there.
    Best of luck with your new headliner... :tu:

    Thanks!

    Are you good with a camera? Do you think you could provide some close-up pictures of it? I'm curious as to the look & texture.


    A buddy of mine is the original owner of his 77 too, but he had the headliner replaced years ago before he became a JNCer and so he didn't recall what the original was.... :lol:

    Thanks.
    Texture looks different than mine. And you're right, it's hard to take good pictures of the material.

    Mine...


    What color is your car and what color is the headliner? Is the headliner the same color as the rest of the interior?

    I've had few Lift-backs including 2 I now own, all have felt-like fabric headliners.

    Okay, that might put a twist on things.... do you know if those were all original? If bought used, they could easily have had undergone some changes over the years. Headliner replacements seem to be common. Looks like you live in L.A. - so I'll assume these were US cars? What years were they?
