Any idea where I can get a carpet kit for the interior?

Also looking for the clips that hold the interior door panel on.

Thanks

Stock Interiors have a listing for 55-56 Desoto that will get you something for the front and rear passenger areas. The wagon cargo area will have to be custom (probably) but they do sell bulk carpet as well:

I ordered that set for my 56 Dodge and it came as a 55-56 Desoto so you should be laughing (maybe)

Door Clips (if they are like my 56 Dodge):

Geno Industries 9-9361 (Auvenco 9361)

I should mention that when you are in that link

This one: https://www.stockinteriors.com/CSCarpet.asp?Itemid=12458&ModelId=612

You get pull down menus for carpet type and colour.

I selected 80/20 loop because I thought that it most closely matched the OE carpet (which by the way is probably multicolored but it will be difficult to find that).

I selected (for my three tone car with two blues) Bright Blue from their pull down menu of 31 colors.

For the cargo area, they have carpet by the yard. You get the same two pull down menus for carpet type and colour.

ACC is the main supplier of pre-sewn carpet for many vintage cars. If you buy their carpet through Rock Auto, it's hugely discounted. Even ACC will tell you that.

I bought the carpet for my 55 Desoto from them and it fits nicely. Edges are bound. No cutting required to install.
