Default California Car Covers

I am planning on buying a cover from here when I get my hearse. I've seen calcarcover.com mentioned here a few times, so I wanted to see what everyone recommends.

I'm looking at the Superweave Premium Custom cover, but as far as sizing goes, how do you specify the vehicle size? I have heard that 90s Suburban covers fit but other than that I have not yet seen a custom dimensions option and i dont think choosing a 75 Cadillac Fleetwood 75 formal Limo is going to give me what I need.

Can anyone offer any wisdom here?

I ordered California Car Covers for our funeral coaches many years ago. If I recall correctly, the manufacturer required detailed measurements of the car, including side mirrors. They may have even provided a "work sheet" to fill in the appropriate numbers.

I was very happy with the finished product, however the covers were quite heavy, and some of the staff didn't like fighting with them.

Been using them now for a number of years.in our climent you get about 5 years out of one. They will custom build one for you give you a sheet that you provide the meserments to a points they need. The do have a pattern for a hearse if you just want a general fit.

Awesome, thanks for the information. I sent them an email, maybe they will send me this sheet. I want to get it prepared so if I buy this 75 this weekend I can quickly get an order in before we start getting snow

Blake, while they provide an in depth form to put measurements, they have done many for hearses and limousines, back in mid 90's, I had covers made for my '72 Superior and '73 M-M... they apparently have a list or database of what they have built. If you trust this (and I have been lucky with it) it sure is an easier way to do it. I would simply tell them my car and see what they have done before might work.
The cover I have now was built to fit the '73 M-M and '76 M-M... but what time it has ended being used (in a covered shed) it was over the '90 Superior Chevrolet. It was a little big, but was fine. The key with these covers is to get you a short rope to attach to the two plastic attachments that run midline of the cover, attach the rope, throw it under the car and attach to the other side... it will do wonders when the wind gets up, as the front and rear have the elastic areas.
I like the Noah covers but there are different covers for different needs and climates...

Yeah the Noah does look good as it looks to be all around, and have better ding protection. If it fits a 76 it will surely fit a 75. Will let you all know how things go
