Truck and Car Floor Mats

Newark Auto Products

Newark Auto Products has been making automotive products for over 100 years! The company started out in 1907 refurbishing upholstery in horse drawn carriages. By the end of World War II the company had evolved into manufacturing replacement car floor coverings (both rubber and carpeted), seat covers, headliners and convertible tops.

Newark Carpet Kit for 1971 to 1976 Cadillac Coupe DeVille. Newark carpet kit for 1962 to 1967 MGB.

By the 1950's Newark Auto Products was one of the first suppliers of these products to J.C. Whitney and today you can find the company's products at places like J.C. Penneys, Sears, PepBoys, Trak Auto, Grand Auto and many more. Newark also provides custom contract cutting of narrow, wide or heavy products like carpet and canvas using their 66" wide cutting tables and 7" cutting knives. They even have hydraulic die cutters for materials that can't be cut with a vertical knife. If Newark can't fit a piece of carpet or rubber into your vehicle - no one can!

Newark also sells an interesting variety of accessories for your vehicles via their website. Air Compressors, Fender Covers, Foot Pumps, Headliners and Headliner Materials, Replacement Seat Covers, Universal Vinyl Roofs, Simulated Convertible Top Materials, Trunk Lining Materials, Speaker Enclosure Materials, Expanded Vinyls and Original Upholstery Replacement Materials. Lots of stuff you old vehicle restorers need and some stuff you new body shop folks need!

Newark Auto Products
Replacement Carpeting
Cars, Pickups & Vans

Newark Auto Products makes replacement carpeting for most makes and models of cars, vans, pickups and SUV's on the market. They make the replacement carpeting in two forms. The first form is "sewn-to-contour".

In the 1940’s and 1950’s when automobile carpet became a popular option to have in your car, the car manufacturers would cut out separate pieces of carpeting to fit over tranny humps, shifters, protrusions or to solve the problem of how to fit carpeting in a vehicle that wasn’t modularly designed. I mean, cars of this age weren’t exactly precision products, so floor pan dimensions would vary in the same model even on the same production line. So they cut out the carpet to a close fit, placed it in the car, trimmed to fit and sewed the pieces together! An expensive way to do it, and kids loved to pull on the stitching and pull the seams apart, but hey, you do what you have to do when you made a car back then. Today the manufacturing techniques and equipment used by Newark Auto Products give you a more sophisticated and precise product, but the idea is still the same. The second form of replacement carpeting that Newark makes is "press molded seamless". This is a more modern technique and involves the creation of a precise mold of a vehicles floor pan that is then used as a mold to heat press carpet in. This results in a semi-rigid, but still flexible, piece of carpeting that is already shaped to fit your vehicle's floor and just kinda "drops in". Here's some more info on each type of replacement carpeting from Newark and a quick list of the various vehicles supported.
