1955 Ford Interior

This is a 1955 Ford Town Sedan that I just finished. The entire interior was re-done with fabric original to the car. All the seats were re-padded, and all the door panels, kick panels, sun visors, package shelf, and headliner were replaced. The only thing that was not replaced was the carpet.

Yes, the rear glass was removed to put in the headliner, and a new seal was used to put in the old window. I had a pro come and put the curved rear window back in. Look at the last post in this thread: CLICK HERE In the 4th picture you can see the rear glass is out. Or look at the 4th picture in my third post in this thread, it's the same picture.

The windlace always goes in first before the headliner, there's no other way to do it.
