I would like to replace the carpet for 37 Century, older restoration. I can't seem to find any company that has carpet kit for my car. Anybody know of any kits available and what is the preferred type of carpet. Thanks, Bob

You should repost this over in the Buick Pre-War Technical section. This section here is read mainly by the people who run the forum (forum administrators, computer and software people). It was random that I happened to see it. I'll take a quick stab at the question though.


1937 Buicks originally had a rubber mat in the front seat area. You may be able to get that at Bob's Automobilia. https://bobsautomobilia.com/


The carpet in the rear will have to be made up by an upholstery or trim shop I think. It was a wool pile. I suggest WIlton carpet. It is wool, and stiff, and stiff is good in old cars that used flat carpet without much attachment.


Lebaron Bonney used to sell kits to do the whole car in carpet. They are out of business. I don't know of anyone else.


Try posting here instead: https://forums.aaca.org/forum/60-buick-pre-war-technical/

You will get answers from people who know a lot more than I do.


Welcome to the forum!
