Front floor mat- '51 Super

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know if these era Buicks came with carpeted front floor mats ? Mine has black rubber but needs replacing. I don't know where to look for either material but I'd  prefer carpet if it was an original feature and  I could find one with the proper size and contour. Thanks !

From my understanding a contoured rubber mat was installed.  I was fortunate to find one for my 54.  I believe I read a ribbed industrial rubber mat can be found at  Office Depot or the like.  I think Home Depot carries rubber matting.

My 51 super also has black rubber matting, but only on the front seat, the back is carpet. I think I can save the rubber but I will definitely need new carpet. On the thread of helpful vendors and sites, I found this: http://www.runningboardrubber.com, which specializes in restoring this kind of thing.

Appreciate the link. I never thought to look under that heading..

 

Not many people do Kestrel. I use to try and keep that thread updated but just never saw it get very many hits. Glad to see someone finally got some good from it.
