Hi. I’m just checking to see if anyone has heard of a vendor that is reproducing the rubber floor mat for the Task Force trucks with an SM-420 four speed. I’ve found plenty that carry one for the column shift. Thank you, LJ
I would think they are the same with the option of cutting out the hole for the floor shifter ,they may have a marked outline on the mat for the trucks that have a floor shift to make it easy but you would have to ask that question to the vendor .
When I first bought this truck in 1984, I found a mat at Golden State Pickup Parts. It did have pre punched holes for different options. Now all I can find say they are specifically for column shift trucks. I think the floor hump is different.
That is a good question, I'm shopping for a floor mat for my '58 with high hump trans cover. 'Classic Parts' brand new catalog shows one but if you try to order it online, only the column shift mat is available. LMC offers a molded industrial polyvinyl mat that covers the whole floor for $179.95. It's supposed to last longer than rubber and I'm leaning that way.
I purchased the LMC polyvinyl floor mat for a 1958 Chevy 32 w/high hump transmission cover. I was impressed with the material and the quality. They fold the mat like a blanket into squares for shipping and there are some heavy creases that didn't come out after unfolded for 48 hours at 72 degrees as instructed. I placed a towel over the creases and used a household steam iron and the creases came out easily. I'd use much caution if you did this.
"Some trimming may be necessary" is quite an understatement. It is molded pretty well to the hump and the seat mounting area, but all borders must be trimmed. All holes in the mat for pedals, shifter and all mounting bolts for seat and gas tank must be cut. I spent a good 10 hours on all of this.
I very much recommend the mat, just be ready for the effort.
