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.
