These guys advertise in Hemmings and ebay, but has anyone used their stuff. Price seems reasonable, $75 set.

Did you mean to include the vendor's name or website?

Been discussed many times before here. I have a set here for my 59 Lark, haven't put them in yet. They look good- pretty close but not exact same pattern as original. They'll take a little tinkering to fit, but that's true with any. 18 ga. metal. I think they're worth the money.

Installing a set in the 54 cope right now, every thing needs to be cut to fit the area of work, but will do the trick and good price..

Those are Classic Enterprises floor pans. I used them in my 56J. There is another vendor who makes a more accurate floor pan, but I don't know the price. These will work very well unless you are looking for a show car and the judges look at the toe boards. They fit in pretty well, but as with everything you will need to do a bit of bending. The hard part is the sides by the vents. You are supplied two pieces that go from the floor pan to the sides of the kick pads. You will need to weld them in, and even with everything out of the car it is a tight fit.

Bondo these are not CE floor pans. CE is located in WI, these are from C2C in MI. They look similar to the CE mini floor pans but are 1/3rd the price. However, the money saved may end being used in trying to force them to fit. CE is typically pretty close to the originals. If there is a better one out there I have not heard of them.

I agree with Dan. CE's are stamped as per the originals. The pans may be important but just as important are the supports and CE's make a pretty solid installation if you buy the whole 9 yards. Good luck.

There is a guy down south who wsa at York and had floor pans that had the re-enfrocement treads stamped thru the curve at the bend. He also had proper C/K trunk corners, and showed a sample of his double floor for K body cars
