  • CARPET

    I have a nos black front carpet for my 65 Daytona Sport Sedan, and have been trying to locate a nos black rear carpet to match, with no success.
    Who offers the best and the closest look alike to what Studebaker had in them, as I will have to probably purchase the full set to do it right?
    Thanks for your advice

    I sell the loop pile sets for $240/$20 UPS that pass the judges at shows. I can do plusher sets for $350 or try Phantom Autoworks too.

      Thanks for your reply John. I knew that you sold carpets, and am not biased to anyone. I was just looking for opinions as per my post. Thanks again for your help.

        I don't know how my carpets compare to the competition since I buy mine from me.

          John,

          I bought one of your loop pile carpet sets for my '64 Cruiser and am very pleased with the quality and fit. Do you make matching carpet trunk liners? I don't think such a thing was available for Studebakers other than the Avanti, but it doesn't hurt to ask. I think vinyl liners were available with a matching cover for the spare tire for the Hawks. Maybe they were also available for the Lark sedans. If so, wouldn't this be a good start on a pattern for ones made from carpet?

            I could make trunk carpet, but I don't recommend it unless you really want a rusty trunk. I'll just be a big sponge to hold water.
            The vendors sell the correct Lark mat. (like the Hawk)

              That is what happened with the homemade carpet that was in the car's trunk - rusty floor and moldy carpet. I was hoping to be able to stop water from getting in there but so far haven't succeeded despite careful caulking. A vinyl mat will definitely be preferable if water continues to find its way inside. Nice to know that Studebaker made a trunk mat for this car and the vendors have them. I will probably go that route. Thanks for replying.

                There was carpet in the trunk of my 62, when I got it. What a mess. They are good at holding moisture. Carpet is out, rust is out, new metal is in, with a mat on top of it. When it is really humid out, I leave the trunk open in the garage. I am paranoid of allowing conditions that will allow rust back into this vehicle. Yeah, I know, "good luck", but you gotta try............
