  • Rubber Floor Covering

    I have a 56 Champ 4 Dr Sedan without carpet just the rubber floor covering. I have checked with Studebaker International and they only carry up to 1952. I would like to put it back to original condition. Has anyone purchased this item or found another way to solve my problem?
    Thanks, Tom

    Check with SASCO, they may have NOS. It'll be dry and fragile, but if you're careful, it'll work.

      Get the replacement rubber mat quite warm before even trying to unroll it. Putting it out in the sunshine on a fairly warm day (like about six months from now, here) is one way.

        I've gotten several from SASCO and they look pretty good for 50-year old rubber!
        Best thing you can do is to go to their website, where you can search their database of part numbers and then start trying numbers for the appropriate mats for your car. In many cases they'll have the mat, but not in the color you want. In fact, in recently checking, I found that for one particular application, they only had the correct mat in a color that doesn't match the color of my car. But they DID have the black mat and I can live with that just fine.

        Miscreant at large.

        No deceptive flags to prove I'm patriotic - no biblical BS to impress - just ME and Studebakers - as it should be.
