Bruce: The 82 car had a different headlining colours for the different
colour interiors, and different than the later cars (after #346688), which
all had “limestone”. If your 82 interior is biscuit, then the headlining
code is AH which is “Fawn”; this is a soft beige colour; the vinyl trim is
black. Any trim shop will have a range of tones which will approximate the
original.

Bruce,

If you are going to have a local shop redo your headliner, your best bet is
to find a clean part of the existing material from under an interior trim
piece. Take that to the shop, and visually match it up to the samples they
will have. In my case, I was able to exactly match the color, but the
texture is very slightly different than the original.

Just to add a comment re ours – my wife has often remarked about the oddly
different colors between the headliner and the rest of the trim/seats, so when
I pull the flopping stuff down, I’ll probably try to match the color to the
seats. Since the 86 is nominally ‘hers’ I’m listening to her on this. :]–
