    The easiest way to get a good carpet that fits is to take your car to a professional upholstery shop. They cut and fit and bind and sew carpets for vehicles all the time.

    Probably Anniston, Ala.

    Hey Claude! We moved to Iowa where I worked for about 5 years, then I retired from the daily grind and because of a death in the family - and an available house, we were able to move back here to western WA, where I can drive my Stude's year 'round. My head is exploding from all the carpet choices, BTW! Thanks, everyone!

    Tom, I ordered mine from Automotive Interiors. Haven't got it yet.

    By the way, I thought you moved to Iowa!

    I just got my new carpet for my 51 from Southeast Studebaker. It was pricey, took four months to get, and is absolutely fabulous. If you are not in a hurry and want carpet that looks pretty much exactly like the original go with Southeast. If you want nice functional carpet that mostly looks original for a lower cost, I have Ernie Loga’s Carpet set in my Champ and it is very nice too.

    I was going to order from this place. I got some samples and they looked good.

    Contact: Auto Mat Co. www.autointeriors.biz . (516)938-7373. This is the real deal. I've been using them since the 1980s. They are an actual manufacturer, not a reseller and they know their stuff.

    Besides Kanter, is there another source for Stude carpets? I find several of the classic car resto websites don't include our make.
    Thanks!
