I think you'll find it all depends on what your intending supplier's products are like.

The shape of the floor is basically the same so carpets will "fit" early and late Minis, but the supplier may have cutouts for the early wand style gearstick, or a later remote change or a rod change. Early cars also had a floor mounted dipper switch that may have a cutout in the carpet.

For a start, I suggest you have a look at the carpet sets for sale on some of the Mini parts suppliers online shops here - viewtopic.php?f=41&t=83593

I have a MK 1 850 with floor starter.
Bought my carpet from No Bull Accessories in Queensland.
It is a moulded one with no holes in it so you can cut whatever you need.
