Exterior Car Cover for Austin 7s

I'm sure this subject has been covered in the Forum but, as usual, I can't find it ! Does any manufacturer make a dedicated A7 Car Cover ? Preferably waterproof, breathable and for LWB Ruby shape, I appreciate that there's lots of small car covers available but they're all for modern car shapes but I've never found one that fits that well.

My 1932 RN Saloon lives very happily under a cover made to measure by Prestige Car Covers - http://www.prestige-carcovers.co.uk/ The usual dislaimers apply. I'm a happy customer.

Even if it is described as breathable & waterproof, make sure that it is removed for a time after any prolonged rain or your paint will suffer

If you will not be around to do this, or there's not space to dry the cover off the car then I would reccommend a carcoon or a framed cover that doesn't touch the car.

Thanks for that tip but I've already had one re. Folding ones from Jon E that I'm following up and hope to take delivery of soon. I'll report back about it, it was just over £200 and folds up and stores very easily when not in use.

Re: Exterior Car Cover for Austin 7s

A slight divergence from this thread but I think relevant.
I had very good quality outdoor cover for my 1929 short wheelbase saloon. It was for a Smart 2 seater and fitted almost perfectly. Shape correct even down to the 'ears' for the door mirrors. A little bit wide but length spot on.
I suspect a cover for the Smart ForFour would be pretty close for a LWB car.
