Default ‘36 headliner strips

Does anyone know of a source or interchangeable years for these headliner strips from a 1936 5W coupe? Mine are solid with that exception of the “saw teeth”; they’re mostly gone.

I do not know of a source for new strips, but 36 Ford Four Door front strips are the same. 37 Ford has similar strips, but may need to modify location of attaching screws. 36 and 37 Tudor strips could be used, but are longer than the 5W Coupe and Four Door strips and would need to be trimmed.

Thanks Gary! Extremely helpful information. Think I’ll try and locate a set of 4 door strips.

I haven't used it but this was the best solution I could come up for headliner strip and was recommended by a top notch car upholstery shop.

Maybe the link doesn't work because the post is in the Upholstery "social forum".

I grabbed the pictures related to making the strips out of 20 gauge tin. I had some strips sheared for my '35 by a furnace duct guy; have not got as far as forming and using them so far.
