Datsun 1200 came standard with #rubber mats covering the floor — and with carpet covering the transmission tunnel in the front seat area. Optional was full carpeting.

Full Carpeting

Full carpet was option but rare in USA (most only seen on some coupes).

It is a four-piece set:
1. Right Front Floor
2. Tunnel Carpet
3. Left Front floor
4. Rear floor

The rear piece stretches across the car and over the rear portion of the tunnel.

Tunnel Carpet

Except for Standard 1200s, all 1200s were fitted with a piece of carpet covering the tunnel forward of the front seats. Standards came with a #rubber mat covering the tunnel.

Upscale GL and GX models had a 'foot patch' on the tunnel carpet next to the clutch pedal. All USA cars were fitted with the GL-type tunnel carpet but in a unique blue color.

It is glued, it goes to the lip which aligns with the base of the tray. This helps reduce Roadnoise, as from factory would only cover floor.

Parts

Tunnel carpet is NLA (No Longer Available) from Nissan in the USA, Canada and Japan.

AUS: Knox carpet fits the automatic tunnel, is a bit large for the standard manual transmission tunnel and will gather about the gathers at the sides near the doors. Fitting an extra layer of insulation will help.

AUS: Trufit

USA: Mail Order custom carpet from ACC in Alabama

Insulation

From the factory, only the tunnel had insulation, a jute type. Additionally, there are some asbestos heat shields on the floor which also have some noise-dampening characteristics.

Factory jute insulation was glued to the tunnel

Fitting carpet insulation will significantly quiet the 1200 cabin — even under the factory rubber mats.
