Default Car cover

Did a quick search but no luck.

Car is in garage - some sun light through window. I'm looking for an economical well made (not sure those two go together) inside form fitting car cover for my 40 coupe.

Any suggestions?

A Blonde, a redhead, and a brunette. None of which are economical.

Throw a blanket over where the sun shines. Either the car or the windows...MARK

Yes, they are form fitting. When ordering, you speak with a salesman and he will tailor the cover to your specific car.

I went on Craigs List and bought a
California Car Cover for $35 for my 1939 pick up. I chose a cover for a SUV. It covers the front of the truck perfectly even to having the outside mirror fit the mirror pocket in the cover. Back doesn't fit perfect, but what the heck, a California Car Cover for $35. Quality cover for economic (miserly) price.

Good form fit from over front and rear bumpers.

California car cover for sure. Problem is they have a bunch of fabric choices which will make you crazy. Fit is perfect. They will send you free the mirror pockets if needed. Great people to deal with. I have the dustproof indoor model for my 32 roadster and a NOAH BMW factory cover for my Z4 which was made by California car cover for BMW.
Sounds like dust is the main reason you are using it. Cheap cotton covers let all the dust go through. Please read the California car cover website on choosing the right material. Call them up, they are good on the phone. Their prices are extremely good for what you get.
Just an opinion

I have not had good luck with covers, but that may be do to not getting high enough quality ones.

There is a guy on here with a California Car Cover that was on his '39 coupe for 100 bucks. That is a great deal. I think his name is LITTLE HOWARD. Put "California Car Cover" in the search engine and it will come up. - Dennis

30-9, which fabric did you choose? I'd like to get one for my '40 Tudor, but don't want to spend the $300+ for the stretchy satin cover.
