Floor mat for trunk - '48 4-dr

There was no mat in the trunk of my 1948 Super 8 Touring Sedan. Someone had cut a piece of scrap rug to put there. Can someone clue me in as to what type material Packard used in the trunk?

I appreciate your response and suggestion. I'll get on it.

Steering wheel

Looking for a steering wheel for a '48 Super 8 Touring Sedan. The old one is an opaque hard plastic type of material that has cracked.

Ideas anyone?
