? about window felts (wiskers)

Just removed the window felts that were on my 67 Cougar. I wonder if they could be original to the car or replaced? On the back side of the old ones it has "The Standard Products Co" didn't the wiskers have a ford product number on them from the factory? I see that the Standard Products Co started in 1930's and did supply parts to the auto industry. So they could be original to the car.

My guess would be that they are original. The only place making repros is the Repops company so I doubt that they would use a different company name. There are other companies out there that make a generic window felt product. The difference with those companies would be that they do not put the correct factory style clips on their products. So if your felts did have the factory clips in the proper locations I would say that they were original. Of course this is just my opinion and I have been known to wrong on a fairly frequent basis.
