    I finally got hold of a company making oem headliners for 63-66 wagons! Yipii!

    145 + shipping seems fare.

    I found a company on eBay selling early A headliners - think they were about $170 or so. What is the name and location of the company that you found?

    Don! The name is Classic Auto Trim. They have one hole headliner. Not 100% right but Close! Not sure I know of some company that has the factory style headliner though!

    WOW, that's a nice Dart! I like that red on there too. Same year as my dad's Dart, except it's black.

      I found some neat stuff on eBay a while ago. Showed up yesterday, it's a postcard of the famous "Cottonpicker". Driven by David Pearson and built by Cotton Owens and a picture of Mr Owens himself. Great items for my 65 Dart collection.

      I took some time to take a ride in the wagon today. Next week I will meet Scott in Lancaster, CA who sold me the car.

      I finally got to meet Scott who sold me the wagon. Super nice guy. He had bunches of Mopar stuff. So did his dad Bruce too. Tons of parts! Their froend Dave showed us a super nice Max wedge clone in mint condition.

      Nice to meet you Scott. A true FABO fan!

          What kind of restoration are you doing- by the numbers, a nice driver, modified like I'm doing?

          Don! I will go the date correct restoration way. However I will make te car a driver so I can use it! So some where in between I guess. I have really been wanting to do this car for a long time both for that I enjoy drivning it and I like the lines of the wagon. If I had some more skills I would like your modifications. But now I'm enjoying your skills and your progress instead!

            This is the last picture of my wagon in unrestored condition. I love that old look with lots of patina but I don't to transform my car into a rust bucket!

            This one will be ready for summer 2018......

                  Wish I could help you my friend! I don't have any and as a matter of fact, I will be deleting all the side moldings and tailgate molding from my wagon.

                    Same yo you Rockerdude!

                    Next step today on the wagon was to remove the rear seat and see if there is any rust.

                    I foung the seat spring suppliers tag in the rear seat back the the original broadcast sheet in the rear seat!! Ho ho ho!

                    After some vacuum cleaning no rust at all was found!

                      It might look cool without mouldings!

                      I took of tje mouldings on the driver door and the front fender. Mext was to empty the front door. So nice doing eork without rust!
                      Next was to bring out the front seat and the carpet.

                      This is the first time in my life I take out the carpet and find no rust at all!!! On the backside of the carpet was no label, instead the information was hand written! Manufactured in CA too!
