Today while digging in the garage through some NOS parts I came across a NOS full dark blue floor mat for 1963 based on the part number on the box. My question is that since the 2 piece mat has been reproduced, should I sell this one and buy the reproduction? I am going to assume that it will fit the floor contour of a 1962, but since my car is in the shop for some bodywork, I can't try it in the car until it comes back next week. What are the opinions of the masses'.

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

Heck, try it and see when your car comes back.

Sell them. They will not last forever and the materials degrade over time exposed to the atmosphere and other reactive elements.

If it were a metal part, then sure. But plastic, rubber and other soft parts, they are beyond their useful life so if they are truly NOS, sell them.
