Where would a person go to get some good quality floor mats....ones that actually say Studebaker on them?

I've looked and looked and can't come up with anything even close.

And while I'm at it, is there a place that I can purchase a good indoor/outdoor car cover for my 62 Hawk?.....one meant for the car and not a 'one-size-fits-all'?

Thanks,

Karl

Studebaker International has floor mats on page 84 of their catalog. I'm sure other vendors also have them available.

Don't know about the mats, but I had a cover custom made by a firm that is out of California (Covercraft?). Cost me about $180, but it fits like a glove. The manufacturer claims to have thousands of patterns and you can get several different fabrics. You may want to do a Google search for car covers.

I did Google for floor mats and came up with nothing but a bunch of misleading nonsense.

In regards to the car cover, the only thing I could find that sounded reasonable was a company that produces one named Noah. I use a Noah cover on my Corvette and can attest to their quality, but I didn't get a straight answer out of them if they had one custom designed to fit a 62 Hawk.

If you don't mind my asking, what is the name of the cover company you are referring to?

I think the company Gary is thinking of is California Car Cover...

http://www.calcarcover.com/

I have one of their covers and it fits very nicely.


You can send for SI's catalog, but you can also access it via their web site. Click on "Orders", then scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on any of their catalog chapters.

Yep! I was just there and finally figured out how to navigate their web site (I'm not very computer literate, heh, heh)......found the floor mats, though...just what I'm looking for.

Also, thanks for the car cover info....I'll look into that tomorrow.

You guys are good. I need all the help I can get.

I just bought a new set from SI a few weeks ago. They're $50 for the front rubberized mats, in several difference colors with Studebaker in script. They're nice.

I have to admit I don't really like the rubber ones but I think it is SI that also sells some really spiffy looking carpeted ones. I hope they are still available when I'm ready to order them (I know, support your vendors - but there's no point in investing in carpet or mats until I stop all the water leaks)

I'd love to have a set of those floor mats.[8D] But with the brake and clutch arms going through the floor is there not too much interference? Guess they're just made for cars with automatic trannies.:( If anyone has made a driver's side mat work, could you let us know? Thanks.:D

I went and ordered the front mats. But I held up on getting the rears, simply because the voice on the other end of the phone couldn't explain to me how the rear mats deal with those big recessed areas in the floor behind the front seats.

What are those recessed areas for anyway? Seems to be a bit awkward trying to figure where exactly to put your feet, when sitting back there.

And they also have custom fit car-covers too! And aluminum-finned valve covers! And, and, and, they gots lotsa stuff! I feel like a kid in a candy store [:p]

Welcome aboard Karl,
Once you get your turning wheels you will find dozens of vendors that don't have websites and may be very close to you. I have found one that is close to me and I hope to look him up tommorow! Good luck on your Hawk.

When ordering the floor mats, you specify whether auto or stick and the mat will have the appropriate cutouts. They're nicely made, but I found they tend to bunch up and move around a bit. Skipping the rear mats was probably a good idea. They really don't adapt to the floor wells. The deep wells were included because Studebaker wanted a definite low spot to collect all the water that entered the passenger compartment.....actually, it was supposed to provide more leg room to make up for the huge driveshaft tunnel. 'Didn't really work that well.
