    Ok, I will see if I can make some edits to my chart and re- post.....
    But first it is 45 degrees and the roads are dry (out of town) and I have my rebuilt carb to try out.

    I was going down this path but the cheapskate in me made my stop at the fabric store and found some heavy hounds tooth plaid upholstery fabric for cheap. Something like this. A yard is about perfect. Something like this. The cheapskate reasoned that the spare will cover half of it anyway and the fabric will breath better. Looking at this thread I'm getting a little mad at that guy. Probably start my meds again:)

    I have a '65 Ply Sport Fury and mine looked like yours. I went with that pattern as a replacement. My original was dry rotted to the point of being too brittle to touch. I agree with what was posted as well that this was most likely a selection by the dealer at the time they did final 'assembly' of the smaller stuff on the car. It makes sense that the car would not roll out of the factory with the matt installed.

    My car also had a tire cover made with the matt material as well... but I think this was done by the dealer. Unfortunately, I couldn't save it and had to toss it. I just came to pieces every time I moved it. I have a few pieces still and can take a pic, but it's just like yours anyway.

    The new matt looks good and as far as I'm concerned, does the job just fine.

    Finally received my new trunk mat.
    It has the right pattern for a ‘68 Polara. For now I just put it over my other one. Maybe even more sound deadening. Maybe sell my slightly used one someday if someone needs it.

    Wish I'd known about your willingness to sell before I bought mine! Oh well... I got a nice new plaid vinyl one for our '66 Newport which will do us a little better than the cardboard I had been using. Yours looks good!

    Are the 2 door and 4 doors trunk mats on a Plymouth Fury the same size?
    Thanks
