    I own a 1985 Riviera Convertible, and have for about 17 years. I will have to do some research, but I thought the 85 Riv Conv was the first to have the headliner. I had my top replaced locally about 10 years ago by Lims Upholstery Shop, Tysons Corner Va. (Fairfax Co. Va.) Mr Lim no longer owns the shop but he knew exactly where to get the top and was well aware of it requiring a headliner. He did a beautiful, and professional job. In fact the top is still like new as the Riv is garaged, and the top is very seldom lowered. The top will be lowered this 4th of July as I have been asked to drive the Riv in a parade.
