Is this available? I sure could use one in black.
I have owned 8T03S-01425 since 06/76.
I owned 6S2295 in 1973 & Ď74.

Black has been available in a reproduction for some time.  Black used in 65-66 I know of; don't know others.  It is longer also. 
The Metuchen built '68 Shelby protector is not black.  Different years and different plants varied.  Good luck.

Which is it that would be used for my Ď68, 02/14/1968 build date convertible? White ext/black interior & top.

 You would be looking for the grey protector. I believe Chris Brown has some.

What length(s) do you need?  Do you need a luggage protector strip for the passenger side ( behind the spare tire)?  How is the strip cut as it meets the floor mat?   Thank you .  MK

driver's side only. As Don's pictures show the convertibles are approx. 10.5, fastbacks are shorter IIRC about 9"
