71-73 Car Covers
#1
I am looking for an indoor car cover for my Mach 1...mainly just to keep the dust off the car during storage months.  Anyone have any recommendations?  Not many companies list a cover for 71073 Mach 1's, LOL! 

I have been eyeing up a couple covers to fit either 2018 GT500 or 2018 Challengers...both sizes listed are close to the 190 inch long Mach 1.

So, lets hear what you have and maybe a few pics too!

For indoor use only these are great, easy to clean and fold up when not in use and have different colors of covers for when you have several cars and are wondering what goes where.

I don't have a picture but I bought 4 over the years from Beverly Hills. The one on my 73 Mach 1 came from them been on car since 1982 in the barn so will last a while. They have different grades the last couple I bought were for verts and fit great. They are water proof even though they are the funny looking material like in the other pics. I think that call that material Non Needled fabric.
Can't remember price but go to their web site. They had in stock couple years ago when I ordered.

I got a Coverking from Costco to keep my Mach 1 covered in the garage. Just put it on a few weeks ago. It seems to fit well for being a universal cover. If you go to their website https://www.coverking.com/ you can look up by vehicle.

I am pretty cheap, so I just ordered an XtremeCoverPro cover from Ebay.  They don't have one for 71-73 Mustangs but the 2015-2018 Mustang cover has very similar specs! 

If it fits nicely, I'll post a review.  I really don't need anything more than a dust cover...almost bought a G-14 Cargo Parachute to do the job but this was still cheaper!

Got the GT500 cover today but it is a little snug. The material is soft but I am afraid it may wear the paint on the corners where it is tightest. What do you guys think?[Image: c48b169f90f1abf4daf0c40e77b602ea.jpg][Image: 3d0a69a1f01ed4620d098a33eff899e7.jpg]

Looks too tight, day to day thermal expansion and contraction is likely to wear on the corners and maybe even the sides. Because it will be indoors waterproof isn't needed, but breathability, to prevent condensation, is.
