I got a set on ebay in 2007 for my ’63 Cutlass 4-speed car. Trim Parts, Inc. had a store on there at the time but I don’t know who the actual manufacturer was. It was $115 for the set. The rear fit perfect. The front fit well except for the transmission tunnel area. I converted my car from automatic trans to 4-speed and have both styles of trans. tunnel metal stampings. The carpet didn’t fit either one. It was too big for the auto trans tunnel. There was enough material to cover the 4-speed tunnel but the molded shape would not lay totally flat. I sliced it in a couple places to make it fit a little better but it is still puckered up a bit on the right side of the tunnel. Mine is black so it’s not real noticeable unless you focus on it. I wonder what they were using for the mold to make the carpet?
