        Most of the originals I've ever used were too brittle to deal with.

        What years will the headliner bows that you had made fit ?

        Are they the same style as the ones used on the 1960-61 station wagons ?

        C_B5, I can’t confirm all the years the trim fits, but I know it fits both wagons and non wagon cars with hardboard headliner. I just had someone try the trim on his 60 car (not sure which model) and he said trim fit metal bow nicely.

        I have a '62 Plymouth Savoy Suburban. I have the hardboard headliner and plastic trim/bow covers. I'm looking for the (12) small metal finish clips that go on the ends of the plastic bow covers.

        Hi I have a Dodge Coronet 1957 and i think the headliner plastic trim covers
        maybe fit even on this car, if they fit I am very interested in buying some.
        but the longest bow is 63 inches and there are 4 pcs.

        I know it does not have the same surface but the most important thing is that it holds up the boards.
        mine are completely broken.

        Gorgen, if you can measure the width of the metal channel the trim snaps onto with calipers and give me the measurement, I’ll compare it to what I have. I’m not sure if I have any trim at 63” length, but I’ll look to confirm.

        The width is 5/16. and the length off the longest is 63" on the longest butt the other three are just 58".
        if you do not have the longest one maybe you can take two shorter ones and I can splice them.
        thanks, Gorgen

        Gorgen, it may be a safer bet for me to send you a short sample piece for you to try since you’re in Sweden. I’d hate for you to spend good money for a full set plus the freight over there only to find out they don’t fit properly.

        Send me a PM with your address and I’ll send you a sample about 8” long for you to try before you buy.

        Let me know if that works for you.
