Matching carpet

I'm now getting ready to carpet the rear section of my 1984 28' Funeral Coach. I've removed the casket chamber and the overhead bus type a/c unit. Now that I've got walkthru access I can begin to make it ready for all my hanging racks and such.
Do we know what type of carpet AS was using in 1984? It's a nice dark blue and I'd like to match it to the forward section if possible.
Thanks for your input.

I'll bet you that carpet is NOT original A/S supplied. If it was used for funerals, it was probably replaced every three years at the longest. A carpet store will let you look through sample books and even take the samples home over night. If you can find an uncovered edge, take a tuft or two to match color at the store and take home the sample(s) that match most closely.

Be sure to look at the color under natural sunlight as well as under the store lights.
