Unfortunately you guys weren’t alone, re the vinyl aftermarket.

Some of the worst atrocities were perpetrated here, typically by Ford Dealers:

This dealer chose to defile the entire bootlid

And yep it’s also the half roof

This time on a sedan, and notice the vinyl keeps going right up the belt line to the A-pillar. Possibility the worst I have ever seen. I mean, why do this to an XA GT?

Plenty of other vinyl horrors to be appalled by, on this page belonging to a superb aussie-Ford website (featuring older Falcons) which strangely originates from the UK?

The first new car I purchased was a 1975 Chevrolet Nova Custom 2-door cabriolet. It was red with a 1/2 white padded vinyl top (rear portion of roof) - with white interior seating and red carpets. It had the optional 350 CID engine with a 4-barrel carburetor, and the optional turbine mag wheels (and the spare was a full-size tire and a turbine wheel). It had a floor console with the automatic shift lever and a gauge package at the forward end of the console.

I have owned cars for more than 50 years. WIthout a doubt - I got more compliments on that Nova than any other car I owned.
For context, this question needs to be asked:

When you picked up your new Nova, were you wearing flairs at the time?
