Ford LTD headliners were, through 1978 "bow mounted" headliners. Later LTD's had the more modern 'snap in' headliner. The later LTD headliners were made of a backing board to which fabric was glued.
Bow Mounted Headliners:
The Ford LTD roof was covered with Ford LTD Tier vinyl fabric held in place by special headliner bows. LTD headliner bows should last through several headliner replacements. Please notify us if you require us to cut replacements for your LTD headliner bows.
Snap In Headliners:
The industry made design changes in later headliners. In particular, the later Ford LTD headliners, like other headliners, were made of a board that was contoured like the roof and covered with headliner fabric. These snap into place in the LTD roof. We offer the "scrape and cover" headliner packages for those who wish to scrape the old fabric from the headliner backing board and glue on the new fabric.
We also offer the full, ready to snap in, LTD headliner. These have weatherproof ABS plastic backer boards, superior to the original. They have the accessories cutouts and come with instructions for installation. Note that 1978 and earlier Ford LTD's had the bow mount headliner. Ford introduced the snap in headliner in 1979 LTD models. Also note that the full snap in headliner is a heavy oversized package and much more costly to ship than the scrape and cover LTD headliner kits.
Our factory has been in business since the thirties. Original headliners were collected and our Ford LTD replacement headliners are all made from original patterns. In the bow hung headliner the center line of each headliner is marked and extra headliner fabric is provided around the perimeter which allows for stretching, aligning and trimming of the headliner to fit most easily.
