Hi
I have a 60 Belair 4 door sedan Australian delivered. My headliner has 7 bows (8 sections).
I recently purchased a new one that has positions for 6 bows (7 sections).The description from the supplier said it fits 4 door 60 Impala.
Have i accidentally ordered the incorrect part?
What would the 6 bow fit?
Would I be able to fit the 6 bow to my Belair?
Any clarification would be handy.
Cheers.
Tim.

I can't imagine 7 and 8 section headliners being the same length much less the unequal widths of the sections adding up.......
I also can't imagine you not running into problems with one bow missing from the equation.
It's going to be an ugly mess.......
Here's the one in my '59 Belair.

Thanks
That looks to be the same as my original
I'm thinking I've been sent the wrong part.
I presume 60 Impala 4 door and 60 Belair 4 door would have the same roof/size?
Maybe the 6 bow fits 2 door or some other model?

I'm wondering if they sent you one for a 4 door hardtop. I never owned one, so its only a guess. Maybe someone on here has the ability to count the sections on theirs.
