I have a question about a closed car front floor mat. Has anybody used a 23- 25 open car rubber
floor mat in a Coupe?

The original mat in closed closed cars was a carpet style mat. It seems to me a rubber mat would be more durable buts that's just me. And yes the carpet or cocoa mats are original for the closed cars. I've been thinking about putting a mat in my 24 Coupe and I have a feeling that rubber mats have been used.

Try ordering an "untrimmed" mat from Snyder's, they have a lot of extra material around the edges to allow custom fitting. :-)

Thanks! Didn't think I was the only one thinking about doing this. It seems to me it would fit with a little trimming here and there.

Just had a new carpet made for my 24 Coupe from classtique upholstery in lino lakes MN. Mike 800-208 9032 really nice

Has anyone on here fit a Snyder's untrimmed -24 touring front rubber mat in a -25 touring front? would need at least an inch extra both sides in front.

Yes, I did just that, there was plenty of material to achieve a perfect fit. I made a template out of poster board first, then trimmed the mat to match the template. :-)

John,
My understanding is that the 1924 Fordor and the Coupe have a lot of things in common. Not sure about the front floor mat.!!
Here is a photo of an overlay of a rubber mat onto of our RHD Fordor carpet. There are some significant differences.

Best regards, John Page, Australia.

Thanks for the responses! Sure glad to find a solution. My front mat is original stock but hard, brittle and on its last legs.
