    Studebaker carpet question

    Has anyone used the carpet set from Studebaker international? I was wondering about that vs Southeast Studebaker as far as quality.

    Thanks!

    Southeast Studebaker is excellent quality, but how long can you wait?

    I purchase two from Studebaker international on for my brothers President another for my Clipper fit is ok , the carpet is of poor quality in my view snags easy and the loop is not as dense as original . The price was good and fast delivery

    Original stock, or the best quality "LOOP" carpet ever...I am not a fan of loop carpet. The very nature of its construction is an ambush waiting to snag something or someone. A dense high quality cut pile is safer and more durable.

    Very satisfied with price, quality and fit from Automotive Interiors in my 1962 GT. Their web site shows a special section for Studebakers.

    Sure looks great to me. If there is an access cut in the carpet for the Master Cylinder...it really is blended in well.
