Replacement carpeting 55-56


Recommended Posts

Has anyone replaced their carpeting recently with a moulded set? If so, where can it be ordered from and how is the quality? I noticed that Kanter listed carpet. Is this moulded? Has anyone had any experience with it?

The original loop-type carpeting in the 55-56 Packards is "unobtanium", no one has manufactured that style of carpeting for years. The companies out there offering carpeting for the V-8's are selling a "close enough" product. Not to belittle them, it's just not the original type.

I had the guy who did my interior sew up my carpet also. He did a great job using the original as a pattern. No "pucker". The original wasn't molded - don't know how they would "mold" a carpet to fit. Original carpet was very good, tough to find a modern equivalent. Like trying to find a towel as good as Cannon's Fieldcrest - taint possible.
