This car didn't come with carpet, and owner wants to stay as factory made it.
With wall to wall rubber mat.

Cut some matching carpet to the shape desired then send it to Dan (on this forum) to add the edging trim and the backing.

I don't think the car had rubber mats mats in the rear. I know my '51 did not and I got it as a mostly untouched original ( older gentlemen had only tinkered on it after buying out of a barn ). Bound carpet runner in the rear. The carpet I had was pretty much just like the rear carpet in this car.

Is your '51 a business coupe? The one pictured has a back seat, not a business coupe. I can't imagine, having a rubber mat in front, and carpet in rear, for a cheap "fuller Brush" car.

i did some searching for you and the car did not have rubber mats as an option. Read on an see why.

1952 Chevy Data

1952 Chevy Description

Cosmetic changes for 1952 included the grille, which had five teeth added to the center bar and different side trim. The parking light lenses were bigger. A new two-tone color, Bittersweet made its debut. Convertibles came in 10 body colors with 5 different tops.
Chevrolet managed to squeeze up to 105 horsepower out of the "stovebolt" engine. A new carburetor improved acceleration.
The 1952 Chevrolet model-year assemblies slumped to 818,142 cars, but that had as much to do with government imposed production quotas related to the Korean War as it did with anything put out by the competition. Since materials were allocated to automakers in proportion to their 1951 sales performance, Chevy was guaranteed to hold its lead in 1952. Not only were there fewer Chevrolets made, there were also fewer of them from which to choose. The Styleline coupes, sedans, station wagon, convertible and Bel Air hardtop all were continued, but dwindling interest in fastbacks left just one Fleetline in the catalog, a two-door DeLuxe. It, too, would be gone after 1952. The Special trim package was now available only on the Styleline models.
The materials shortage manifested itself in two highly visible areas; whitewall tires and chromed trim. The Korean War gobbled up lots of rubber and with this the whitewall tire was a consumer victim in 1952. Blackwalls were the tire of the day. Detroit came up with a chrome process that featured the elimination of nickel. Chrome was applied over the copper. The resulting chrome was less durable and had a yellowish tint to it. To this there was a clear coat but it, also, wasn't durable. The one exception was the bumpers as they were handled via the traditional process.

Apparently Ya'll are misunderstanding me here.
This car rolled off the assembly line with a front seat, and a platform where the back seat goes. no back seat it has no armrests, no roll-up 1/4 windows, it's as plain-jane as you can get. It's a Business coupe. It has rubber mat in the front, and should have one in the rear.
After doing some research, I found that this car is a rare bird, and there will never be a repro mat made for it. (unless I make one myself)
Kinda like a right hand tail light stand for a '52 sedan Delivery. You can get the taillight, but not the stand.

I'm still trying to find out all that I can here.

How izzit that I end up with all the rare stuff with no parts availability?

carolinacustoms 08-14-2013 08:32 PM

Wasn't the trunk on the business coupe also bigger than the other models? Or did it just seem that way because the trunk was extended into the rear seat area? OR am I wrong all together LOL?

Still no joy. They only offer carpet for coupes and sedans. Nothing for business coupe.

Than for the suggestions though. :)
