Re: IML: 58 Imperial Carpet



Hi;
I have a few photos from the Detroit Public Library's Automotive History Collection of a 58 Base, custom, whatever, 4 door. They were GM proving ground engineering pics (!) of a new Imperial from all angles, including engine compartment and underneath. The car was very new. The carpet was clearly a loop. Also, Diran Yazejian, (retired Chrysler design studio head) has an 11.000 mile 57 with the original carpet: I have seen it, is is a a double loop carpet, more tight than some of the cheaper later ones.
The trim code only tells the color, it seems. The 58 Color and trim book (also at the Detroit PL) only shows the seat fabric swatches.
So, a loop carpet appears to be appropriate. But, with Chrysler, you never know.

I sent to SMS for samples to do the resto on my 58 Custom Sedan. What they sent as factory correct was loop. Hmmm. My carpet was trash but it sure looked factory with the correct heelpad and all. It's grey cut pile. OK, so what's correct for a 58 Custom Sedan? My trim code is 51.

Hi all;
I need to replace the carpet in my '58 Custom 4 door sedan.
All of the sources in the IML parts list (ACC, etc) have only 2 door applications.
I want to do this right, with the serged edges and transmission tunnel split, etc.
Thanks for any leads.
Mark
