Wood under the roof in an Aceca?

Is the wood under the roof of an Aceca normal?

Wood under the roof in an Aceca?

Peter,
   
   I believe the wood was only used on those cars which had a headliner.  My car, AEX734, has no headliner and instead has some sort of fuzzy fabric glued directly to the inside of the roof.  I am somewhat tall and the extra inch+ of headroom is really nice.  Thanks for providing the great documentation of your restoration!  BE646 is very lucky to have you as its owner!

That is the way mine is: Fuzzy headliner glued to the roof.

   Yes, that was also the case for BE646. Thank you for you answers.

Peter,
   
   I understand (as Greg indicates) that the wood on the roof is typical for an Aceca with a traditional “drop” type headliner. My Aceca (AEX521) has a traditional headliner and the wood frame, which I understand is there to support the headliner; although, I can’t comment on how it’s attached since I didn’t see mine being installed. I don’t believe Acecas with the glued on headlines have the wood frames. Maybe Greg or Gus can let us know if their cars have the wood frame and glued on headliner.
   
   I used to think that only the early Aceca’s had the traditional “drop” headliners, but I’ve seen pictures of later cars with the “drop” headliners.
