I`m going to replace the home made (red) carpet in my car (4 door hard top) with carpet made by ACC.
At the moment i`m thinking fawn sandalwood.

Car has fawn interior. Honduras maroon outside.
Is there a way to determine the origional color for carpet used with fawn?

Thanks in advance.
Ronald

There is only one color carpet for a fawn interior - its a fawn or tan carpet and the carpet in 62 was tuxedo carpet (or salt and pepper as its sometimes called) Your fawn interior would have had black loops mixed with the fawn or tan color carpet.

ACC sells the correct tuxedo carpet but they and other carpet companies also sell carpet non tuxedo carpet that is all one color.
"All" 61 to 64 carpet was loop carpet (No cut pile).Only black carpet, with a black 62 interior did not have tuxedo carpet.

If your car has fawn seats and door panels it came from the factory with fawn tuxedo carpet.

Tuxedo carpet costs about $ 40 to $ 50 more than non tuxedo carpet. All the carpet for 61 to 64 come molded to fit the floor pans in the car. The molded front carpet fits over the molded rear carpet under the front seat.

"Final note" - the seat brackets are NOT bolted on top of the carpet. The factory cut slits in the carpet and folded the carpet around the seat brackets (for bench seat cars and for SS cars)

If you are going to order the ACC carpet, Rock Auto has the best price, and if you Google "discount coupon for Rock Auto", you can usually find a 5% discount coupon.

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

Paul, do you have pics or a diagram on how to cut the slits in the carpet for the seat brackets?

See this post I made on the carpet installation and "pictures of original 62 SS carpet" -posted by Verne - as the factory cut it for bucket seats car(62 SS pictured). The large section of floor under the buckets I do not remove on new carpet I just fold it under the seat. Sometimes the rear carpet is wide enough to reach all the way to the front edge of buckets or bench seats -since its under the front carpet cut it off as needed.

The consoles on 63 SS and 64 SS makes it more difficult than a 62 SS 4 speed console (in Verne's 62 SS picture)....

https://www.chevytalk.org/fusionbb/showtopic.php?t...

The make the following corrections and additions to my installation comments on the attached post... is that the rear carpet should go in first (not the front).

Plus there are no actual measurements- the key is using the existing seat brackets, floor shape, SS console brackets, rear seat brackets,etc and "make sure the carpet is centered on the hump and overlaps the sill plate area equally"........ Start in the center hump and work to the doors for cutting -"only cut once be careful to place the molded carpet correctly fit the floor......the carpet will move....
make sure the front carpet stays under the firewall pad..glue center hump only (do not glue carpet by doors...glue with 3M spray glue.

use a soldering gun for the gas pedal studs, seat belt holes after marking the correct holes. Do seat belt holes and gas pedal studs last just after cutting along the kick panels (fun area to cut all the excess carpet and fit it under the cardboard kick panels.)
"The very last item '.... is the sill plates "do not cut carpet" for the sill plates by door jambs and kick panels until everything else is done.......Factory sill plates floors are pre-drilled for the sill plate screws..

You need very sharp scissors to cut the carpet. and utility knife to cut slots mark holes needed and a very small Philips screwdriver to punch holes in carpet to find factory drilled holes in the floor pan (example 62 SS console, and factory seat belt holes)...

I am doing a 64 SS Impala new carpet right now. Much harder with a 64 SS long console and all its mounting brackets. 63 SS would be similar.
