I have bought a few replacement carpets for old cars, and have almost always been very disappointed.  Even now as I shop, I find "molded" carpets that magically are supposed to fit 10 years of the same car, with far different floor pans, probably don't fit any of them correctly.  Some of the "cut and sewn" mat are suspect as well.  I don't think any of them use the thick "jute" backing that was original or even offer that as an option.

I also need trunk covering, but am not sure if my 59 Imperial Crown Southampton 4dr HT came with rubber or carpet, does anyone know for sure?

Has anyone had any GOOD experiences with a vendor?

Stock Interiors handles ACC carpets. They show a molded two piece carpet set for the 59-61 Imperials.

Thanks, Stockinteriors seems to have some real quality stuff. To my disappointment they only show for 2 door hardtop bench seats, I have swivel and 4 dr HT

I doubt that the floor pan was different between 2 dr and 4dr. Their real question isn't bench or swivel it is bench/swivel or buckets.

Not impressed with my Stockinteriors carpet. Did not fit the center hump at all.

This is not very encouraging.  NOBODY reports good results, and one has had bad results the same as I.  Surely there is at least one company making acceptcable carpet replacements.

The carpet is a difficult task, but there are some short-Cuts.
I bought a pre-sewn carpet and that absolutely did not fit well anywhere, so I had to make some changes and some forming.
