ACC Black Molded Essex Mass Backed Carpet with Gray Inserts for 1971, 1972 and 1973 Fastback Mach 1 Mustangs.Add a plush, luxurious feel to your Mach 1 Mustang's interior with ACC's Mass Backed Black Molded Essex Floor Carpet! This Essex style carpet is a super-plush upgrade over the original nylon carpet found in 1971-1973 fastback Mach 1 Mustangs, and ACC's standard cut pile carpet. The Essex carpet is made using 100 percent nylon cut pile and is manufactured with over 40 percent more nylon fibers than the average aftermarket cut pile carpet. ACC's standard cut pile carpet is a 1/4 inch high, whereas Essex carpet is roughly 3/8 inches high creating that deep, super-plush feel.
This Mass Back equipped, Essex style Floor Carpet for 1971, 1972 and 1973 fastback Mach 1 Mustangs is precision heat molded in two separate pieces for a perfect fit and easy installation. It comes equipped with the two correct colored, front running pony insert pads that are identical to the originals found in 1971-1973 fastback Mach 1 Mustangs, available in your choice of either black, gray or red. The Essex carpet is dyed black using the finest dyes available and tested for ozone humidity fading and light fastness. The underside of the carpet features mass backing that is layered between the Essex carpeting and heavy 36 ounce jute padding.
What is mass back? Mass back is a tough, rubber layer between the carpet and the jute insulation that increases the form and rigidity of the carpet, while decreasing road noise. At 40mils thick, it virtually eliminates the need for Dynamat or any other type of additional sound deadener. Mass backed carpet will fit just like original style carpet once it is installed, but will increase moldability, sound deadening and insulation. Mass backed carpet retains shape much better than a standard poly backed carpet making for a much easier installation.
*Essex carpet is only available in black.
*Will also fit 1971-1973 coupe and fastback Mustangs with a standard or deluxe interior that want to add Mach 1 styling.
Please Note: ACC's carpets do not come with pre-cut holes, allowing you to make the necessary cuts only where needed for various interior components.
Tech Tip: When you first take your new carpet out of the box, you may notice quite a few wrinkles. This is normal. We recommend laying the carpet out in the sun for a few hours to help soften the backing and to help reduce the amount of wrinkles that are visible prior to installation.
