    I'm also very interested in knowing how this ended up. I need a headliner for my '71 and the '70-'73 headliners look like a more difficult installation. Will the '74 headliner fit in the '71 and is it easier to install than the '71 headliner?

    74-81 Headliners will fit fine in the 70-73 as long as you make sure to get yours without the retractor cut-outs on each side..the only other thing is you might need to change all of the molding (pillars, sides, front and back) to the 74-81 style..it will all work fine and what I am doing personally with mine

    Some have said in this thread they used the 70-73 molding with the 74-81 and reported good results.

    I have the 71 style bow headliner in mine now and it was a pain to do, it's really hard to get the wrinkles out and even after a few years it looks decent, but still has some wrinkles. The one piece headliner is way easier to put in and will def be more quiet on the inside with it.

    I was able to reuse my 70 trim. I ordered the headliner and requested an extra 2" all around.
