Rear seat and door panels will be sent out in July 2022 for recovering.

Beautiful Car! Where did you source the carpet for your car? I am looking for carpet for my 1949 Series 75 and can't seem to find it listed anywhere.

The original series 75 rear compartment carpet was called Mosstred carpeting.  This was just mohair fabric glued over a rubber backing material.  Easily made once you find the color of mohair fabric you want to use.  The carpet used in the front compartment depended on the sub-series (IE, series 7519X, 7523X, 7533X, or a livery model - 7523L, 7533L).
