If you have the know how you can get the carpet you like and cut each individual piece and install it yourself, I would recommended getting a nylon based carpet as it will be easier to heat it slightly so it can mold to some of the humps in the trunk.

Several T-Bird supply companies sell an original replacement kit. Mine was about $130 for my 65. Larry's T-Bird, Mac's, and others list it. Do an internet search for other suppliers.
