Car Cover

We are looking for a mustang car cover for winter storage. Have a 2014 GT California Soecial with the spoiler. Any suggestions for a good one that won't break the bank? Do you need one that fits it exactly, they seem to be more expensive. Can you just put a soft one that loosely covers the car? I have a battery maintainer and also wondering if necessary to jack up the front or not? Or both? Not a whole lol it of room in the garage. TIA

For indoor you don't need anything that expensive. Make sure the car is dust free before covering.

Ford has a California Special car cover you can order. Mine came with one but it's still in the plastic from factory so I don't know how durable it is.
Just google "Ford Accessories"

I've bought thru empire car covers before, they have a wide range to choose from. If you decide to go that way send me a pm they are always sending me discount codes, the last one I got was around 40% off.

Engine mods - all stock, trust me, wanna run??!!!

I got mine from cover craft. Cost around $350. I use it in the garage but it's an indoor/outdoor cover. The big selling point for me was mirror pockets and the antenna sleeve built into the cover. Fits perfectly over the car and keeps the dust off all winter. Just make sure it's clean before you put it on.

Good info and thread to watch, we'll be looking for one this fall ourselves. $200 or under for the covercraft custom fit is not bad at all. When my wife first mentioned we'll be needing a car cover, I was figuring around $4-$450 for a real good one.

Black means black. If there is any chrome involved, it's not black anymore. Just sayin'

I have this Covercraft Dustop cover. I have had it for 4 years and it looks brand new. Of course, it is an indoor only cover but it keeps the car free of dust and dirt and offers protection against people brushing against it when they walk through the garage.

Amazon.com: Covercraft Custom Fit Car Cover for Ford Mustang (Dustop Fabric, Taupe): Automotive
We only want one that will be indoor use only - from Nov - April. But the one thing I worry about are the mirrors and the antenna and the California Special comes with a spoiler on the back as well....so you want it to fit right. I looked at one on carcovers.com and it was indoor only - and they say it will fit if when you order it you mention the spoiler. Only 79.00 on sale. But I know what they say - you get what you pay for.

I tried Empire but with the California Special package it adds that little spoiler to the back and they told me their covers would be too small. I would need a custom cover. I appreciate your advice though! I liked their prices!

I just checked my cover and I would be shocked if it didn't fit over your spoiler. I have the stock small spoiler and there is a ton of material back there to accommodate a much larger one. Unless you have one of those giant wings that kids put on Japanese cars.

I just have the stock spoiler that it came with. I wonder why they said I would need a custom cover? I guess it was Empire that said I needed custom top - Amazon said they needed more information to make sure it would fit - but no way to give them the info. I did find this - anybody heard good or bad about this company?

Thanks for the advice we ended up with a CoverCraft for indoor use and it comes with the 50th anniversary design on it - fits perfect and it was on sale for around 165 bucks. Very happy with it!
