John, Philip, Richard:
Thanks for the suggestions. Rock Auto has
dropped the model-specific carpet sets they listed earlier. The Kanter carpets
look suspiciously like the Newark Auto offerings. Newark’s prices are good and the
quality is probably OK, but they have a number of negative reviews for poor
fit. The ACC offerings sound really good and the price is attractive, but they
only go back to 1957 for Savoy.
I sent them a custom request for availability. Of course, just about anything
would be better than what I had before.
Thanks in advance for any other

company called Newark Auto sells ready made carpet sets through JC Whitney .
Decent quality and fit. ACC (Auto Custom Carpet) may have molded carpet sets
but probably more money. Carpet matched with interior color in Belvederes but I
know my Dad's 56 Plaza had grey rubber mats and I am not sure what came in Savoys.

I just repaired and painted the floors in
my 1955 Plymouth Savoy
and I want to replace the old household plush carpet that a PO
Kanter and Rock Auto offer sets that are
allegedly ready to drop in with bound edges and so on. Has anyone had
experience with one of these, or any other carpet sets? Was the original pile
or loop? There are many colors available today, but were colors other than
black available new?
Thanks for any suggestions.
