Looking at the 67 AIM, UPC 1 Sheet C5 Front Carpets, it states to "tuck under dash mat".  Doesn't mention anything about cutting the carpet, so I wonder if they came pre-punched for a floor shifter or console?  The process is also briefly mentioned in JohnZ's article:

 In my 67 the carpet has a crude cut and folded backwards to clear the console bracket and shifter opening.  My guess is they used the same rug for column shift or console cars.

Anyone know which manual the interior is covered in?

Some of the interior was installed by Fisher Body and the rest by Chevrolet, so if you can't find it in the AIM, try the Fisher Body Manual. If you're specifically interested in the front carpet details, Pete's post above references the AIM.

^ for the '69 AIM, front carpets are UPC1/C3.

Does anyone know which of the manuals covers the Interiors? I've looked through the AIM and the Fisher Body service manual, but it's  not in either one.

 I have never seen an interior manual.
