Question zOLOTONE

First time, extremely proud, new owner of a 1969 Overlander !!!
Inside looks as though is was painted at one time. I would like to "re-paint the paint". Does anyone know if the '69 had vinyl or Zolotone so I will know what type of paint to get ???

Paint or Paper

I would think that a 69 has the vinyl paper. Not sure what the cut date was for the zolotone, but it was sometime before

I'm sure others will pipe in with the exact years. I like my vinyl!
and would NOT change to anything else.

Zolotone was last used in the 1964 models. From 1965 and up, at least until the very recent models, the interior walls were "viny clad" aluminum, which is a vinyl coating bonded to the metal. It cannot be removed.
It can be painted, provided you properly prepare the surface.
It's a long and tedious job.
