Mine was a cream color originally, and it was a fuzzy cloth material (I don't know the proper name).

Not saying that it is *THE* answer, but it is an answer, i.e. Chalk Paint. I've done my headliner with it. Headliner was disgusting. Now it it is almost nice.

Before (was originally a light blue, napped/brushed cotton, but by the time I got the car, dark, ugly and embarrassing):



After (much lighter, cleaner, and "perfectly fine for the girls that I go with" ) :

My headliner looked like yours when I first purchased my car. I didn't have A/C in it as most of these don't, and I drove it with the window down to keep cool. Well, it eventually ripped it all up and blocked my view very badly so I had to rip it out. Hopefully that paint idea will make it strong enough to hold up under a strong wind.

Most stock color combinations I've seen had light blue headliners.

With 3 coats of the Chalk Paint (with sanding between coats), the headliner is plenty wind proof. It pretty much feels like vinyl now.
