1937 120C Touring Sedan Headliner

Whom would your recommend to provide a headliner for my 120C Touring Sedan? I have seen three or four companies who claim to create one from factory specs, but not sure as to which one is the best. I am looking for a consensus so all responses are definitely welcome.
Thank you for your help.

Try SMS Fabrics as they have vintage or excellent reproduction fabrics for just about anything and they offer headliners, carpet sets and authentic seat and door upholstery. (It's who, not whom, by the way.)

Thanks. I have contacted SMS and have a sample along with their price. It was my understanding that the '37 junior series did not have carpet but rubber matting as the floor. Is that correct? If not, then I would love to put carpet down. Also, as to who versus whom, thanks, I did mistype. I do sit (I'm not standing) corrected. :))

Here is an old discussion on the 37 floor mats. The links to websites are still active and maybe worth checking out. Maybe an email to the individual that was repro'ing the mats to find out if he is still doing them.

I'll second SMS for the headliner. The price was comparable with other vendors, and they were the only outfit that had the correct material for my car. The others had generic material and colors, not the exact type that was original to the car.

Fit was good, at least as far as I can tell.

On the floor - rubber floor mat on the front, carpet in the back.

I got my rubber floor mat from Don Lampen. It took a little bit of trimming, but it lays flat and looks great.

I'm not sure if he's still in business - I've emailed him a few times about a different question, and haven't heard anything.

Good luck!

As a follow-up, just got off the phone with Don Lampen. He's been having some equipment difficulties, so the business is a little slow right now, but he's still doing it.

Thanks. Would you please provide contact information for Don and I'll give him a call. I think I already have a source for the carpet for the back.
