Briefly looking at the parts book, most of the floor carpets are listed either as "11.15.69" or as "37", which implies that 11 (2-door saloon), 15 (2-door estate) and 69 (4-door saloon) are all the same, with 37 (coupe) being the only different one. I have a coupe and an estate, but one has home-made carpets and the other has no carpets at all.

Forgot to add, the estate has a false boot floor to make the load bay flat, so the boot carpet is different, also in higher trim specs there is carpet on the back of the rear seat squab for when it's folded down. Probably obvious.

Coupe carpets are different!!! ARRRRRGH!

I've been storing a brand new original blue saloon carpet since 1980 awaiting fitment to my Firenza! :(

What's the difference anyway, can't be that much and probably easily altered...I hope.
