  • Interior: 1954 Land Cruiser - Looking for Trunk Carpet

    Hello,

    I'm looking for trunk carpet and the board underneath.

    Anybody have any good resources for this?

    Thanks!

    You will have to have something made up, in a fabric that is somewhat close. There are no NOS ones for years.
    The "board" is heavy tar paper to smooth out the trunk indentations.
    Try something along these lines for the material.

      That is correct, there was no hard surface type material in the Trunks of '54 Sedans that I know of.

        Excellent, good information. Any ideas on where to purchase tar-paper like that? Thanks, Bez!

          Try gluing together several strips of heavy "roofing felt paper" which should be avilable at any lumber yard.

            You used to be able to get 90# roofing felt that was actually roll roofing without the granular coating. If you can't get it then try gluing 30# together as Bezhawk suggested.

              To not have to buy a full roll of 90# tar paper, try a roofing contractor. Tell them your project, they may either sell or give you a piece.

                I thought that Studebaker Int'l had them. I know that I bought a trunk floor mat for my '59 Lark Hardtop from them a number of years ago. I don't have their catalog in front of me, so I'm not certain of this for your car.

                  Thanks a lot! I'll try Studebaker Intl, and if they don't have it, I'll go this route.

                    The trunk mat subject was covered in anoher thread. Try http://forum.studebakerdriversclub.c...-mat-materials to see if it helps.
