1971 mach 1 auto, 507 bbf, alum heads ect.
The last time I put carpeting, I got the mach one carpet and it wasn’t a wide enough. I think it needed thicker floor insulation. It might’ve helped raise it up. I had to split the center so much to get it to tuck in that you could never remove the center counsel without seeing gap. Definitely more than 5% plug and play.

I ordered ACC mass backed carpet from Rock Auto for my Mach 1 about 4 months ago. I was very satisfied with the quality and fit and the price was much cheaper than Mustang parts vendors.

Back in the '80s ACC was the way to go for the best in carpets and I bought several from them, always satisfied. I had heard when the original owner sold the business that quality went downhill but am surprised to see what you received. I hope you sent it back or at least gave ACC a chance to make it right.

Here are some photos of my new ACC carpet (mass backed). Again, it's a bugger to install but I am very happy with the result.

Is this the Carpet;
Nylon with Mass Backing or the Essex with Mass Backing ?

It depends on what you want. I wanted an original look on my carpet so I went with the nylon loop mass backed. The Essex is a deep cut pile type carpet that will not look original in your car but it is nice and plush.
