I'm looking for green carpeted floor mats preferably with a Studebaker logo on it for my '56 Hawk. Recommendations, please.

The best option I have found for a C/K is the carpet protectors that Rene sells at Southeast Studebaker. I think he has a couple different logo patches that he can sew on them. I had him make mats for mine out of the same material as my new carpet. If you want true floor mats, you can buy the rubber backing stuff with the little pegs on it and glue that to the back of Rene's carpet protector. I bought the rubber backing stuff but I never installed it. The Carpet protectors didn't slip so I never went any farther with it. Maybe I will get around to installing it before I need a new set of carpet protectors.

As a card carrying CASO I've found that old carpet samples make dandy carpet protectors. SI sells some for $$$. The ones you buy at wallyworld slide all over.

I purchased my front mats for '62 Hawk from SI and am very pleased. I'm not interested in the back seat floor mats. Chet445
