Interior ceiling skin. I think I might have big problems....

I have been removing the interior of our 1965 Ambassador. When I removed the door way between the kitchen and bed area I found this under the wood trim piece. Don't know what caused it. How does one repair this? I looked on the roof and there is no sign on the roof that could have caused it that I can see. What do you long-timers think?

If I grok the photos correctly, you're showing damage at the ceiling.

Does that wood piece go from the floor to the roof? If so, this can happen if the floor is flexing due to harsh roads or bad axles. Check to make sure your axles are in good shape.

What is the ceiling made from?

Yes, the wood piece goes from the floor to the ceiling. I don't know for sure what the ceiling is made from. It's the same as the rest of the interior skin. We are taking everything out and replacing the floor, checking and repairing the frame, new axles, etc. So that should fix what caused it? How does one repair the cracks. Do we just fill it with some kind of filler and sand and paint. Or will it need to be hidden with some kind of trim? It seems like every time we do something we find more to do Glad we're not in a big hurry!
