Hello,

I am wondering if any members know what colour carpets would be factory matched to the interiors.

In this case an all white body with a red interior? What would be the standard carpet colour?

Regards,

Damian

Usually it was the same color as your kick panels, or the lower most color on your door panels.

Thanks for that Nathan. Unfortunately the kick panels where missing when the car was purchased. You've given me a direction to go down, it's appreciated.

.
Assuming that the paint is correct and the interior is original to the car, I would guess that the carpet would be red. Check out the "photos" in this 1958 Chrysler brochure:
