    Maybe someone didn't get the memo?

    My 73Z 01E had the bow headliner, FWIW.

    Could there be a difference in Norwood and Van Nuys cars during the February-April time period? I know the Z28 cars in 73 were only made in Norwood, but I don't know if Van Nuys was still making any Camaros in 73.

    My VIN ended in 141596
    Trim tag had 02A

    My friend owned the car from 1974 and it was the original hardboard headliner.
    Engine stamp was A26 73

    I believe that 73 was Norwood only.

    All 73s are Norwood cars.

    What do your roof side rails and A pillar covers look like? My engine was cast one day after yours. A273. I have seen lots of cars later than ours and they had the bow style. It is possible that someone changed it out. Makes no sense that it has a different headliner that early?

    Interesting. I always thought the change was in May because the two 73s that I have, one was bow type(04C vin166968) & the other was hardboard(06B vin182096)
    As usual I know nothing. :confused:

    This really is a headscratcher. I guess it is possible it was changed, that would have to be the first owner who had it less than a year. He did have the seats redone, but I think that is all he did. I don't have pictures of the a-pillar but I found these.
