Spilatro's cargo floor mat,even though Corvans weren't equipped with them.
Seat mounting holes are plugged for this application. Easily converted for a 6 or 9 passenger Greenbrier if needed in the future.

Some rechromed shiny bits,also via Spilatro.
At some point,I'll need to send in the left intermediate cargo handle/escutceon to the chromer as well.

Thanks,Irvan. 2018 is set to be a good earnings year,so I'm leaning more and more towards professional quality body/paint on the 8-door. If so,the pretty parts will compliment the work if/when it's done.

We shall see...

Good to know,Steve. Then that is where I'll send the rest to be rechromed.

Yes. Steve really knocked it out of the park for pre-'63 FC Greenbrier restoration sake.
As there are no tie-downs for shifting cargo in a Corvan,I thought it only appropriate for the future cargo in the Corvan to attempt to grip the floor instead.
I'm in the market for aluminum cargo thresholds,to pin the rubber mat sides down to the jambs.

That looks great but....a word of suggestion.

When the van goes to the body shop, be sure the mats are NOT in the van.

It seems that no mater how careful the people try to be, overspray always seems to find it's way onto surfaces it simply does not belong on.

With that in mind, make sure whatever tires are on it won't get upset if overspray gets on them too.

Correct. And fortunately,your mold locates the hump screw locations perfectly.
Just like the depression for the passenger-side threshold plate.

I believe that I have one, NOS. But it's in storage. I'll look for it when I go get the bumper.
