As we all know, the interior carpet is subject to some of the most brutal and constant abuse your car will ever see. How many times have you launched a full soda or cup of coffee into your floorboard only to let it sit there as you watch the carpet soak it up?

My Ford Falcon was a fleet car built in Kansas City, Missouri on 2/13/67. The car was sold at Bradshaw Ford Mercury in St. George, Utah on 2/27/67. To who, or what fleet I am unsure. It was well used in southern Utah, and as far as I know sat in Hurricane, Utah of a number of years under a tree. Southern Utah is a dry desert area and the car was virtually rust free, except for some small holes in the floor pans where water had leaked in through the cowl.
