So what would be a good choice for powder blue carpets for an early 65 ?

As I posted in that thread, the BAS Veltone carpets are extremely close to the original carpets (mid-60s), but it's quite expensive.

Not sure that Veltone would be correct for a '64 ? But if so, it's worth the cost if you're doing a correct restoration.


Right, it is not. Should be wool twist, which is what I meant but said poorly. Replace the Veltone with wool twist.

I agree that the Newton Commercial carpets do not look correct for the early Mk1 cars.

I recommend the wool twist carpets from Coverdale Ltd. See: www.carcarpets.co.uk. They will supply samples so you can check them out.

Bought the Newton set for my MK 2 in black. I thought it was a complete waste of money, very disappointed with the fit. To get it right, quite a bit of trimming needed. Would not recommend for the price.


They do warn you they need trimming. It’s a lot of work but I like the end result in mine.
