Anybody have a set of original style rubber floor mats? The ones with the white circle in the middle with the bowtie? Must be turquoise. 2, 3, or 4 piece mats OK. Blue or green is available repop but just won't look right in my car. I think turquoise was made repop in the past. Might still be some on a shelf out there but can't find any online now. Photos of black mats for reference.

I have a turquoise 61 and have been looking for a few years for mats. Hubbard's advertised them for a while but never stocked them to my knowledge. Only options I know of are the 56 Chevy type turquoise mats or a different style without the white circles like Classic Industries sells

I spoke to one of the vendors about these mats, and was told that the machine that made them had broken down, and that the company that owned the machine decided that the cost ($9000) exceeded the profit of the product that they had already produced. This is the reason they are no longer available, as relayed to me by a vendor.

Never argue with an idiot. He'll drag you down to his level, then beat you with experience.

Bummer. I guess I keep searching and hoping for a set to turn up someday.

This ebay guy has a set or at least he did not too long ago.
His ebay name is nos_chevrolet_parts
Be prepared to pay up though.

nos_chevrolet_parts is a real censored by-the-way. I asked some questions about his $900 floor mats. Granted, the answers were already in the listing which I didn't bother to read first. Anyway he sent me rude replys and blocked me from bidding on any of his auctions.

I'm sorry to hear of your bad experience with him.
That doesn't really jive with his 100% pos. feedback on ebay.
Over the last year I've sold him many nos Chev. parts from a collection I bought and he even called me once to give advice on the values of what I had. He did pay up nicely for what he bought from me.
He's an older guy and has been dealing nos parts for many years.
Better luck on the next seller with turquoise mats!
