JC Whitney seems to have the best price on them, and they come in just about any factory color you'd need. Just make sure you specify which color you want. I just bought an entire carpet set for about $150 with shipping. I haven't installed it yet, but it looks pretty good to me.

Not to bring up this old thread but just updating in case someone else searches for it .The OPGI carpet Sucks,it dosent fit around the tranny tunnell at all and it supposed to be 2 piece 73-75 .The heel pad is in the wrong spot and there is no dimmer hole or grommet .There are better correct options out there,dont buy this .

Ant
I have heard that you need to let "molded" carpet "settle" out of the box for a while before trying to install it. But if it's just junk then return it to them and check these guys out.

Paul,it was out about a week on the floor in the house. The section that goes around the tranny tunnel just dosent fit right,too big. I kept trimming it and got it in there a little better but from the factory that is supposed to be a 2 piece carpet. Stock interiors is my next stop if I can get any satisfaction. Thanks for the tip .

I'm gonna get the "concours" carpet from NPD, for my Elco. It has the 1/2" jute insulating backing glued onto it already, and it's a two-piece type. It's more plush than the usual after-market type, and it's $136.95 for the '73-'77 cars.

Do you have a link to the "concours" carpet? I can find it on NPDs web site. Thanks, Ron

Ron, it's on page 30 of their online catalog, which is the same as the paper catalog. It's listed as "Detroit tough-concours ready" Don't know if that's true or not !! Very Happy

Heres a tip for you -When you make the holes in the new carpet for the bolts (put bolts in place prior to laying in new carpet so you know where to make the holes) but after making the hole use a soldering iron take out the bolts and stick a hot soldering iron into the holes for a second or two,it makes the carpet hard so the bolts go in nice and easy and dont get snagged on the threads.

Not to muddy-up the carpet thread here, but I ordered the seat upholstery from NPD yesterday. I was originally gonna get the upholstery with cloth inserts, but for a daily driver, all vinyl is fine with me. Carpet can wait until the headliner is installed...
