37 Ford Pick Up interior ?

We are doing the interior of a 37 Ford Pick up. The top has been chopped 5 inches. We are looking for ideas for headliner and to wrap the inside of the body on the back. Head space is at a minimum and the seats touch the back of the truck so space is a minimum there also. There are also some fairly complex curves to deal with. We have seen some sort of black plastic board that has a slight texture to it at car shows but we have no idea what it is or where to get it. Any ideas are welcome!

I did a '34 Ford truck like this.. The corners are 3mm PVC foam board shaped to fit the cab. The center is a very close fit to the window garnish molding. They are riveted together, covered in 1/8" closed cell foam to level everything out. The roof is a flat piece covered in the same foam.

I just finished the interior in my 40' Ford PU,I used a short knapp carpet,(looks like whats in the newer cars,not loop style),and it kinda stretched nice around the trans. tunnel,so I did the cab back panel all the way to the lip above the rear window,to the door opening,no puckers or bubbles,have enough to do the inside the roof,but wasn't sure it would fit the compound curves,so I just painted it with Rustoleum Hammered,they do make a stock "cardboard" hard hd/liner for your truck,maybe just trim it alittle.

Is the PVC already black or did you have to cover it? It is definitely the look we want but it doesn't look like you have any curves to deal with like we do. Where did you get the PVC board?

Are you asking about the photos I posted above? If so, the pvc is the white curved panels in the first photo. It is covered in closed cell foam and topped with black vinyl. The cabs are almost identical, minus the chop on yours. I heat form the pvc just like Dan demonstrates in the thread he linked to.

The pvc foam board is a very common product. You can find it at a plastics distributor or a sign shop. I pay about $26 for a 4' x 8' x 3mm sheet.

You are fortunate enough to have the roof framework still intact. The roof on the '36 I did did not have any of that still in place. if I were you, I'd use the steel framework to mount a piece of 1/4" luan plywood, and then glue my headliner board to that. That way you could do most of the upholstery work out of the truck on a work bench.

Nice job, Jim. I can't place the seats, where did you get them?

Dan, I think the customer said either Econoline or D100. They are fixed back, simple tube frames with a few springs stretched from one side to the other.

I figured they were fixed backs of some kind.
