If you use the Search tab at the top of the page and type in headliner, there are some threads about them...this one for example that uses Luan...

I'm not sure that you will be able to find the correct factory installed fiberboard like material.

My suggestion would be to go to some automotive upholstery shops and see if they can get anything like it. They would probably have the best resources to get that kind of material.

If it is this style , it was used in cars , wagons etc. . Rem makes a lot of this style headliner material . My 64 880 wagon uses this type 6 diffrettnt panels held in by a snap in strip.  Might connect them . https://www.remautoinc.com/

the one section that is stained in my van does not have the holes in it. it is a solid material.
does anyone else attempt to stay with the original looking material? Im just looking for a name to call it so i can research it. So far all I have found is car style material for headliner, not the solid board.
