Post astro turf carpet?

Hey, I was wondering if anyone has any experience with that plastic/grass astro-turf type of carpet that was installed in the 1958-59 Pontiacs? I find that it's kinda tacky and kitschy and would like to put some in my 1959 Rambler. Does anyone know how durable this stuff is and how hard it would be to install. Thanks a lot!

I know the stuff you are talking about. Awhile back I had a sample card of the stuff from a reproduction company. I never actually used it in a car, but the backing seemed really stiff. I think the company had carpet kits for 50s, 60s, and 70s cars. Maybe you could still get a premade kit from them. Ill see if I can find that sample card......
