I wouldn't term the 'socalled NOS' one I had in my hands as 'too nice', or even 'nice', in fact it was totally unacceptable to even be 'called a reproduction. It had a thin white cloth backing, and the front seemed to be a thin plasticized cloth as well. It's thickness and weight were approx. 1/10 of the original rubber mat. Surely there must be some decent reproductions? ie. with pebbled black rubber backing, and smooth vinyl top surface? I took some photographs of my original (I've always assumed this to be the original mat, as it was in my Z28/RS when I purchased the car in 1976, and was worn, torn, and dirty even then. It still today is in the same condition as it was then since the car has been in storage since 1980. I'm attaching a couple of photographs in hope someone can confirm for certain this is an original mat, and hopefully tell me if there exists a decent reproduction of the original mat. Attached are photos of: 1) the full mat removed from the car, 2) a folded back end of it showing both the top pattern and the bottom texture, and 3) a small detailed image of the mat pattern (not houndstooth as generally described).
