Thanks for the reply, Kurt. Just relearning my '64 trivia.
Did the console carpet originally match the type, weight and style of carpet as on the floor of the '64 Eldos?
Sorry, don't know the answer to that. Also to note, my option spec manual is for 1963 (Narra wood, not Baku). This would be a good trivia question for Jason to post to the forum. We haven't had one for a while : )
I looked at some of my stock photos of consoles and they appear to match the floor covering carpet. Keep in mind that either could have been changed out over the years. Looking at our Carpet Help Page, the 64 Eldo originally came with Tremont quality, rayon-nylon, cut pile.
Thanks Jason. My mom drove a new '64 CdV back in the day, and my best friend's dad had a '63 Eldo. Neither car had buckets seats/console, but I recall the carpet in his Eldo being deeper pile and softer than in my mom's car. (Yes, I obsessed over car details like that, at age 5.) Your Carpet Help Page confirmed that for me.
Is any vendor making the exact correct Tremont cut pile? Every 1964 repro carpet I've ever seen has the nap not as thick/plush as I remember.
My ‘64 Eldorado has luxurious pile carpet inside too.
Im not sure, but my 64 Eldorado does have some at the bottom.
The original carpet on the bottoms of my car's bucket seats matches the carpet in the center console.
So, logic would tell me that those are true and original.
