Reproduction floor mats


Recommended Posts

They should fit - Carpet Savers, or Handy Mats were pretty well universal for all models, the main difference being the colours offered. Most popular is Black. They also came in two styles, single full front, or a left/right set, and the same for rear mats. There was also a matching 'trunk' mat.

They're universal up to a great point. Especially the driver one had differences though between that used in '60s and that used in '70s (think it due to the way the gas pedal was mounted differently). The one piece over hump were never considered 'correct' by Buick dealers for the Riviera; they were listed by their books as not being for Riviera. Getting these in colors would be wonderful for all the owners with non-black interiors.

Yes! Forgot about that size change. My parts book shows '73 as the 1st year for separate A-body mats. According to the book, 73 and later A Bodys (Skylarks) and X Bodies (the Nova-clone called Apollo) got both front and rear mats with different part numbers. So the fronts and rears are both different from that year on.

Rob, the original mats in my 1975 Electra have a white tri-shield. But I think 1975 was the last year. My 1976 Electra didn't have the factory floor mats but I have seen pictures of others and the tri shields were not white.

The tri shields in my 1967 Riviera with Aqua floor mats are not white, they are a lighter green. I bought a NOS aqua floor mat on eBay and the tri-Shield wasn't white either. It was the same lighter green as those in my 1967 Riviera.
