        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.
