I tried calling the company mentioned above and talked with "The Car Cover Lady." They have a listing for "1953 Champion or Commander." But does this mean the sedan or the coupe? The Car Cover Lady asked someone else in the office, who said their pattern was for the sedan models. I sort of doubt this, as there would be much more call at this point in time for coupe covers. But I hesitate to order one in case it actually was cut for the sedan. So, I don't have any further ideas. All the other web sites I tried didn't have any listings at all as far back as 1953.

DO NOT buy one of the ones on ebay. The ones supposedly for Studebakers. Hah! I put one on a car outside and in less than 3 whole months, it reduced itself to grey powder!!![}:)][8]:(

The one that I got from carcover.com was well fitted
for "Charlene" my 1953 sedan......no complaints!
Probably want one that is high in UV ray protection
and moisture barrier.

Anyone know if thee is a cover that fits the '51 Champion business coupe? AutoAnything drills down all the way to the Coupe, but the 3 passenger coupe is significantly different in shape and I think the Coupe cover would flop around in back.

Depends if it is inside or outside, or both.

I tried the "autoanything" web site mentioned above and they make a distinction between covers for the '53 sedan or coupe, so that is who I am going to try ordering from. They have available much the same fabric lineup as "carcover."

I got mine a few years ago from Studebaker International. It's made to fit the shape of my '59 Lark and it fits well. It's been on my car all winter and it's about to come off.

I have a small on-line parts store and we are a dealer for Covercraft Car Covers. Covercraft makes specific patterns for Studies all the way back to 1939. We have sold a lot of Covercraft Covers and never had a complaint. Of course I use them also to cover my 50 Starlight and 63 Hawk. Just need to know what kind of fabric you need for either indoor, outdoor or both.

Got the cover for my '53 K from California car cover. Fits really well. Not cheap, but good. They make several different covers from different materials depending on where they will be used. My cars stay garaged, so I just use a dust cover.
