Looking for a dark green carpet, '68 Valiant 2-door AT. It's a race car project
Apparently ACC - who I've been happy with before - is back-ordered.
Several sellers on Ebay, though God only knows how accurate the fit is or who's making it.
Carpet in there now is pretty beat, and way off-color, but at least it fits like crap eyes
Classic has a 4-door carpet quite a bit cheaper.
IIRC, that year the wheelbase was the same 108" regardless of door count.
Any reason a 4-door carpet wouldn't work ?
It's never gonna be a restored-to-stock #s car, but I do want it to be decent.

Check with Dante? I would wait it out vs wasting money and doing it twice.

Have a family member who put cheapo carpet in his GM car, and had to change it out later as the fit was an eyesore. Carpet barely went up under the gas pedal so you could see far too much of the firewall + it barely had enough to tuck under the doorsills.

The front would be the same but the rear may not be... work


The funny thing about science is that if you change one miniscule parameter you change the entire outcome to the way you want it.

ACC is the only game in town for carpet now, so unless a reseller has what you need in stock, the backorder is going to still hinder you. frown

The thought occurred to me that the 4-door carpet may be trimmed differently for the B-pillars.
Or maybe the inner quarters, which would seem to differ between 2 and 4 doors..
Guess I'll be making a few phone calls...

Found an ACC dealer who also mentions that they do - which I guess means makes - automotive "vinyl flooring".
I could only leave a message, but I'm going to ask about that as well as the carpet.
Maybe it IS possible to get the base model "rubber" floor covering for the guys that want that.

As I was typing this, they returned my call, are sending carpet color samples to me, and will check into the rubber-mat deal & get back to me.
I'll post the info after that's confirmed; hope that can help the folks with rubber-mat cars.

I have a used set of dark green carpet out of a 68 Dart GTS. Been sitting for years, wonder what it looks like now? work

Thanks guys - the specific shade of green is a bit different from stock, to match the "rear seat delete" - it's coming from the folks I mentioned.
