Question: would a 64 Coupe Deville originally be equipped with cut pile carpet or nylon loop? Looking to replace me carpet, but the carpet on the lower rear front seat seems to be cut pile. I prefer the loop look, but I'm trying to keep it original looking. Any discussion?

Caddy members, I’m upgrading my 64 2-door coupe deville.

motor guy lost my block (machine shop went under) so I’m replacing motor & tranny with LS conversion. I have motor parts (other than block) for 429, rebuilt transmission, converter, and too many other motor parts not needed with fully dressed LS going in.

Email me (Tom.reichenberger@ipsper.com) or call me (210-739-4854) if you’re interested…..I live in San Antonio, TX.

thanks, TX…
