Post by 76 Malibu Thu Sep 12, 2019 9:20 pm

My '76 Malibu needs a new carpet. It has a 64C Buckskin Cloth interior. Does anyone know what the correct replacement carpet for this interior would be? Any recommendations on brands? I assume ACC is the standard choice?

Also, do they make a two piece carpet like the factory, with the vinyl edging, or are all replacement carpets one piece?

Thanks!

Thanks for the quick reply. I must have remembered wrong, I thought ACC only sold one piece carpets.

Yours looks great. What colour code is that? From looking at the ACC website, it looks like buckskin would be the closest to my interior but it looks darker and more brown than my OEM carpet. I am not sure if they would have am exact match.

I ordered mine from stockinteriors.com. It was a one piece molded carpet. I ordered a few samples so I could look at them before I bought. I think they were $1 each or something.

I may have to order samples to try and match it closely. I am just not sure what they will cost to send up to Canada. I was hoping someone had a same colour interior and had already got a carpet.

From Acc's website it only shows two browns, Carmel and buckskin for a 76 Malibu. Neither look to be a perfect match from the screen. Maybe its nor possible to match the original exactly?

Buckskin if I remember correctly sir. Mine was lighter in color and I didn't want the lighter color as I drive the crap out of mine and didn't want it to show as much dirt. lol

I just ordered some samples from Stock Interiors for my 1978 C20, my interior is Buckskin but Saddle looked closer to what my carpeting is. I had samples of both and sure enough, my carpet and lower door panels are Saddle according to their chart. It is a good idea to get the samples and confirm.

I know this is an old thread, but I thought I'd update. ACC sent me some colour samples (for free!) and none are a perfect match. The closest to my carpet appears to be the 830 Buckskin. It is slightly lighter than my OEM carpet but it matches the seats very nicely. Code 820 Saddle is pretty close too, but on the darkerside. I am probably going to order the 830 Buckskin.

Anyone order carpet from RockAuto? They seem to have the best prices with shipping on ACC carpet.

I bought carpet for my 1978 GMC K25 through Rock Auto - Despite all the disclaimers on back order and such, it arrived in less than 10 days!

I 2nd the Rock Auto choice. They were the least expensive I could find and it ships straight from the manufacturer which I think all the options are ACC brand. I bought a carpet for my 77 El Camino I restored 2 years back and it fit very well. Mine was a 1 piece carpet since it was for a 77 model year. I believe 73-76 carpets are all 2 piece sets?

g3chevy, did that carpet have to be trimmed at the back wall or did it somehow go up the back wall. I am considering buying new carpet and buying a roll at the same time to cover the back wall.

I had to cut it to fit. The back wall I trimmed to where it went up on the wall a couple inches. It covered the carpet for the back wall as seen in the pics below. This was a 77 El Camino with all the original interior so I used it as my template.

Thanks for the feedback. I ordered from RockAuto tonight. My standard 5% discount actually worked out some how to be a fair bit more as it discounted the shipping too. So it was an even better deal yet.

Reviving a an old thread.   For those who purchased the ACC carpet, did anyone choose the MASS BACKING?   Its a bit of an extra charge but ACC claims no need for sound deadener or heat sheild when using it.  The mass backing is already attached to the carpet and they also claim that it fits better.  Opinions?

Joe, I spoke with an ACC rep via email before I bought carpet for my 87 El Camino to clarify what they were calling "mass backing". The carpet I pulled out had the mass backing on it which is a rubberized coating that is applied directly to the back of the carpet and then the jute backing is attached. I just went with the jute backing and used Dynamat on the floor pans. It's actually quieter and cooler inside the vehicle now. So I think the mass backing would be overkill if you use a sound deadener like Dynamat. Here's a pic of the carpet I pulled out for reference. Hope this helps.

I have heard the same from the square body guys - pass on the "mass backing" and go with sound deadener.

Thank Iggy, good info. I was thinking of passing on the mass backing as well. I just requested two color samples to check out.
