Well more than one but,
Is there a difference in the ones avaialble form the common suppliers or is it like carpet where its generally just one supplier?
If there is more than one, which brand is preferable and who distributes it?
Lastly, what color headliner is correct for a 68 with parchemnt interior?

thanx much

For your car with Parchment interior, the headliner color is Parchment. According to the charts, etc., all parchment 68 interiors had black carpet and black dash pad. I dont't know who makes the headliners but they all have one grain pattern that is called moonstone or something like that. That interior should look great with a green exterior.

that's what I am hoping
I have a black dash and carpet, as well as (added by me) black seat belts. It had a brownish color set of seat belts in it, but they didn't look right at all.
Thanx

I had a '67 with parchment interior when they were new (that puts the date stamp on me!), and yes the headliner was parchment as well. The carpet, however, was brown. I expect that, like lots of other things, they used whatever was at hand (within reason) as the car was coming down the line. Can't remember the belts for sure but I'm thinking they were brown as well.

It wouldn't surpise me at all to find the belts in brown were original and that the carpet should have been too. I like the black better anyway for both of them

The parchment was the same between 67 and 68 and 67 could well have had different colors with the parchment ie dash pad and carpet along with belts, but the 68 color chart does not include that. Parchment with black was it. The pillar pads and knee pad were parchment. I parted out a 68 with parchment deluxe interior It was candyapple red. It was an unmolested car from Philly but rusted beyond hope! Later, they did away with the pillar pads and knee pad.

Marcus,
I am in the process of putting one in right now. I got it half way in and the weather turned cold so I had to wait(will hopefully finish today). I got mine from Virginia Mustang. It needed a little modifying(some of the cloth wire tracks were too long), but overall I am really happy with it.
BTW, it is a pain in the A** to install without wrinkles. Take your time, get good clips to hold it and use 3M 8090 Spray Adhesive. 8090 goes on easy, dries quick and bonds great.

Best of luck,
Harry

The trim shops used to use a steamer to get the wrinkles out. Many places use heat guns but they are a disaster if not used conservatively. A conair type hair dryer will help in getting the wrinkles out also. It's getting late for this in Minn., but putting the car out in the sun is a help. One of the back issues of MMonthly had a feature on this or it could hasve been Mustangs&Fords. Years ago, doing a 66 fastback, which is easier,I had a trim guy come and do it.

Good move. I finished mine today, and I am not real happy with it. I just called a place and they want $100 to install one if the glass is already out. Worth the $$.

Best of luck.
