Interior Porsche 356 C Coupe

#1 Post by Guido Kwikkers » Sat Feb 16, 2019 5:08 am

I am (about to) install a new carpetset for my 356 C Coupe from 64.
Much looking for pictures of how the rear section (Tunnel, rear passenger and behind front seats) should look like.

Does anyone have pictures (from concours 356 Coupe cars) available for reference?
This will be determin how it should be installed.

I am struggling to termin how the tunnel section should be done

Be aware that the vertical in front of the rear seats will be a little different in Karmann vs Reutter as there are "stand offs" for lower luggage strap bars on Karmann. viewtopic.php?f=1&t=30319 I also padded the top of that piece so it was a little thicker so carpet would not have such an acute bend.

Pics are from my car being done so not a concours car.

The holes for attaching a 3 point seat belt are not shown in these pictures. Where exactly are they? Or, have you covered them up or maybe they were not built in your cars?

Very helpful, thanks. Is the tunnel between left and right back seat covered with soft material to make it more comfortable?
What about the lower section behind the front seats?

I noticed that in the back panel (left and right) a round (plastic) black is used, but not all cars have it (anymore)

The Hump between the rear seats had a coconut shell covering originally. I padded mine with a "cap"of soundproofing material. The black escutcheons are larger than the ones used for window winder and door handle and have a plastic piece inside them. Very hard to find
