Car Cover for Aerobody?

Post by 490CR1 » Fri Dec 20, 2019 9:53 am

I heard there was someone making cars covers for the Callaway aerobody. Anybody know who makes a cover that would fit a CR-1?

The guy who made them, retired and closed his business. No good alternatives exist.

One option is to ask a company like Beverly Hills Motoring, where I got my first car cover over 30 years ago, to make a Corvette cover but add a few extra inches to the front and back to "cover" to the longer extremities of the AeroBody.

Chris, Thank you for the reply. I have the original Callaway car cover but it is worn and not sure if it was a real custom fit when new. If so, I could use this as a template to have a new custom fit cover made. If I find a source I will post.
Thanks, Ed

Ed,

Is it the silver one? If so, I do not recall a differnent part for the wider ZR-1 AeroBody from the standard AeroBody, from the regular Corvette body. It would have been silver, slick, and have elastic at the bottom.

You could send it to BHMA to make a new pattern. For that, they ought to give you a deal on covers. I love their leather floor mats, and might get a pair of them for myself.
