What was the original carpet style for a 1965 Sedan? I know it wasn't 80/20 Loop carpet or cut pile carpet, but what was it originally? Some kind of tight loop? I'd like to know what to call it when I talk to carpet suppliers. I am trying to find yardage that is original to match the original carpet. I found a rear NOS set in maroon, but I'm having a hard time finding a front set. Thanks in advance.

I would call it 'cut pile' but there was not much pile involved!

Thanks Chris. You didn't happen to find any carpet or interior parts in that shipping crate did ya? Haha. Thanks.

Nothing in red unfortunately. There are various brown, green and black pieces. Red and blue seem to be the hardest colors to find.

Thanks for looking. If you're done cleaning out the shipping crates, I'll buy the rubber heel pad and that red panel that goes on the b-pillar. Just PM me the cost and I'll get you my address for shipping cost. Thanks again for looking. I bet that was like opening a large Christmas present.
