66 Toro driver's side rubber floor mat, tail light fillers & door pull

Postby Freddy67 » Thu Jul 21, 2016 12:28 pm

Hello.

I'm looking for three items for my 66:

1) the rubber floor mat for the driver's side front, the one that goes in the framing attached to the floor;

2) the small, square red and chrome fillers that fit between the tail lights and the rear license plate well; and

3) a door pull for the driver's side door. Mine is the later 66 style that fits "in-line" with the interior chrome. Early models place the pull just below this trim.

Please PM me with as much detail as possible.

Thanks,

Fred

1. The floor mat is not reproduced but a reasonable facsimile is available. It won't have the perimeter outline but will look good enogh to pass. There is a picture of it on this site. I'll try to find it.

I don't know the source but I think you might find it at a company like Mcmaster-Carr.

2. I may have the little squares.

For the door pull and other used parts, you should acquaint yourself with John Dorcey in Las Vegas. (702-690-6077) He has 50 66-70 parts cars. I bought a bunch of stuff from him and he's a straight shooter.

Here's a link to a recently restored '66 with new rubber mat. The first photo is my original car. Notice the orientation of lands and grooves in the rubber. I think the restorer should have placed the rubber in such a way as to mimic the factory installation instead of installing it 90* off.

I did a quick search of McMaster-Carr's website and found this rubber mat. A 24"x48" piece is only $26.00

Regarding the door pull, every GM line had some version of that for many years. Perhaps Year One has something that would work.
