  • eBay shows non-Black Studebaker floor mat

    The latest Avanti on eBay, a nice one by the way,
    surprised me with an apparently new flowing S
    floor mat.

    Is this something that still can be bought?
    Exact URLs appreciated.


    Terry, North Texas
    1963 Avanti R2, 63SR1065
    (in stage 1 resto "Project A")
    http://sterkel.org/avanti
    1985 Kubota L2202(Diesel)
    1999 Toyota rice burner
    1986 Ford 150 Long Bed

    New resolution.
    I will continue to respond, to the best of my ability, to any query,
    challenge or alternative view relevant to my original post.
    I will not respond to anything off (the original) topic...

    Assuming you are talking about this turquoise '63 http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/1963-...QQcmdZViewItem- these floor mats were a Studebaker accessory offered sometime after suspended pedals were first used. They were available in virtually all interior colors. I even saw a gold Avanti with the tangerine interior (11,000-mile dealer-owned car) that had tangerine floor mats like those. I have owned a couple rear mats in red (sold one on eBay), but have never been able to find the fronts in red. I do have a set of used black ones. They are a very heavy rubbery material, probably not easy to reproduce. There are probably some out there, but they don't show up very often.

        These mats were available in white,brown,green,blue,black and red.The dealer price list dated September 1,1963 shows a suggested retail price of $7.25 and dealer cost of $4.35.I have a set of white ones in my Avanti and also have an NOS set of blue ones.

            We've had this discussion before, I know, but this would sure be a hot item for some vendor to repro. Every car needs a set of mats, and the ones available now (nice as they are) do not have the vintage look and feel that the originals did.
