Has anyone seen or used a full vinyl floor covering from Diesel Place on Ebay? They claim to have one to fit a 57. If a car did not come with carpet that the only vinyl full floor mat I have found. It wont be perfect since it is plain black vinyl and doesnt have any patterns embossed in it but it makes the car closer to "as ordered".

Also if I go to carpet what colors did they provide in 57 were they all just black?

Thanks for the help.

Not sure what your objective is or which 57 Dodge model you are working on. Presumably Coronet because I doubt that Royals or Custom Royals came with rubber "carpet".

In any event, places like Stock Interiors (an ACC sales rep), have a wide variety of carpet colours that you could chose to match your interior.

Thanks for the replies. I am working on a 57 Dodge Royal, turquoise and white. It was very original and came with a rubber mat flooring and not carpet. It was off grey color. I thought it would be unique to keep a rubber floor mat since many people these days don't even know cars came that way. Also I copied information from this site that showed an original carpet as being the cut pile type not the loop pile. Even though loop pile is better carpet I would probably try to keep it period correct. My interior is original black accents and light vinyl and fabric grey color, so I assume that it could have come with black carpet but I wonder if they installed grey carpet also?

Have you posted any data up like the cowl data tag or a build sheet for this car? There is a slot on the build sheet (364) for the optional carpet.

Like these for a 57 Custom Royal Lancer:

This car has the original rubber floor mat in it (broken up). I have the build sheet, no carpet on the build sheet. Since repro. floor mats are not made I am trying to figure out what carpet colors these cars came with.
I was hoping someone would have some dealer order literature showing the interior colors. I have a show room brochure but it doesn't give any options.

A photo of the interior would help. Based on your description I would guess black carpet would be appropriate but...

Here is a thread or two that you might want to check out:

Thank you sir! That is just what I was hoping to learn. My interior is the 3rd one down on your post (silver and black). I also read the links you enclosed and the Royal interior was called "Linear Lucidity". What a name!

Really appreciate the help and info. Thanks again.

Randy
