    I would not try SMS unless you are prepared to wait about a year for it.

    The appearance, when stepping into an early 1960's Studebaker, is that the carpet is cut pile. I had to pull out my reading glasses and part the nap of the carpet to determine that it was actually loop pile. So, to keep my Studebakers looking like original I use cut pile.

    Brent. You maybe right but the 64 had loop on the doors and the floor. It had been replaced so maybe it was done then. I didn't care for the look so will order the cut pile. Just trying to order as much of the parts I still need as I can . Will only order what I have the cash for so that won't go far. Took the heads in last week so when they are done I can put the motor together and do some more work on the frame.

    The original floor carpet was loop, but if I recall correctly, the door panel carpet was originally cut pile. For what it is worth, I don't like loop pile as it can get snagged....so I switched to cut pile for the floor of my Hawk.

    I do believe loop is what was in the car to start with and I would guess cut pile was no available at the time. I'm not a big it has to be the way Studebaker built it kind of guy. If I can do anything to make it better and not break the bank I will. The cut pile looks so much better than the loop why would you even waste your time.

    If you look closely at the original early-1960s Studebaker carpet you will find that it is loop pile, but it is a "fuzzy loop." It looks like cut pile at a distance. So, a modern loop pile carpet (that isn't fuzzy) might look less original than a modern cut pile.

    Yes Loop is correct, most U.S. Cars of the '60's had that.

    I don't know if my carpet is original. My 64 Daytona has a loop pile carpet. Is that what the factory used?
