One purpose of this site is to help all of us better understand our rare and unique cars. Another is to locate missing parts that are needed for a restoration. As you know, we also encourage anyone who has a restoration tip to send in articles and photos for consideration. Today, I have a personal request for information that someone may be able to help me with.
Several years ago I purchased a 1969 Dan Gurney Spoiler SCJ that had a set of floor mats I had never seen before. They were very late 1960s and early 1970s in design. They were blue and featured a very time specific and popular paisley design. They also included a Ford logo and a silhouette of a GT40 embossed into the mats. I later came across a set of identical floor mats but in a red paisley design.
I am looking for any information on these. It appears they are a Ford Dealer item since they have the Ford logo and GT40 image. I would also like to know when they were produced and how rare they might be. They look perfect with my Gurney and Cale Yarborough Spoilers. I would actually like to purchase another set for another car. Did they do them in any other color? I would love to have a set for the Talladega but what color works with a white car and black interior?
Here are some photos and brief descriptions.
