66 Floormat

Postby Tuco » Sat Mar 28, 2020 7:21 pm

I know this is a long shot but does anyone know of someone reproducing the original style floormat for the 66?

I have searched the interwebs and Fusick to no avail. I would like to get something close to the original as it covers more area than cars with the transmission tunnel.

This is a pic of my original. I have tried everything I can think of to clean it but it’s too stained and nothing seems to help.

You're going to have to make your own.

McMaster-Carr has a reasonable approximation of grooved rubber sheet. I've posted the link somewhere on here before. It's not exact but unless you're parked next to an original car, no one will know the difference.

I posted that before I saw the picture. I thought you wanted the permanent rubber mat on the driver's side.

Anyway, I'm pretty sure no one is making those. Are you sure that's even a Toro mat? The only ones I've seen are one piece rubber that cover the entire front floor.

This may not be a fully satisfying answer, but this company (and perhaps others) makes carpeted floor mats to fit, including logo:

As far as I know it’s original. It has the Olds emblem and fits nice since there’s no tranny tunnel.
I’ll probaby use it as a template and make a new one out of carpet.

I saw the thread about the driver mat and got the rubber from McMaster Carr. It looks very good and like you said, the ribs run the wrong way but most would never know.

Thanks.

I really wanted to find a reproduction of the original. Probably have to make my own.

Thanks for the info tho!

Hi Tuco,

Would you post a picture of the mat you made from the McMaster Carr rubber sheet?

The Robles run vertical instead of horizontal but I think it still looks good.

Here are some more pics of the car. Still need to paint the hood and install the exterior trim. Need to do some more polishing too.
