1965 Ti Car Cover

Can anyone advise where I can buy an outdoor (waterproof) car cover for a 1965 Giulia Ti? A Super's would work too, I'm sure.

Thanks.

I found some here, but don't know what the fit will be like:

Back in the day, I had a perfectly fitting car cover for my Alfetta from Beverly Hills Motoring Accessories. It was cut to fit the car, not a one size fits all.

I see from this thread that they are closed. But, there is a website. According to the referenced post, one of the previous owners opened a new place. I'd call and see if they have the patterns for your car.

Best of luck.

I've got a fully fitted cover for a Giulia saloon made by Covercraft using Noah material, new in the box - but it's on the wrong side of the Atlantic.

Alex, I have a few Noahs for my other Alfas, but wasn't able to find one for a '65 Ti. I just went to Covercraft's website, and they do have a Noah listed for a 1969 Berlina, part # C651NH, is this what you have? If not, I'm worried that they're referring to the 1750/2000 Berlinas, which will cover the car, but not as nicely as I'd like.

Thanks for you lead, Brian, I may have to go that way if I can't find a ready-made cover from the online websites.

Hi Pat, I have had good and bad experiences over the years with car covers, especially if your car lives outside. Mind you I was kind of puzzled re your comment regarding that a cover for a Super should be ok for a TI. To me that makes no sense, they are exactly the same shell dimensions.

Anyway back to the issue, if you going to get a car cover, I would aim to buy the best example you can get, bearing in mind that UV rays will eventually wreck even the best cover. A couple of things that worry me re covers is that moisture can get trapped under them, ditto dust. Both can be damaging to the car's paintwork. Believe me I know as I have suffered from both these issues in the past.

The problem with moisture being trapped is that this can lead to micro-blistering happening to your paintwork, and that is a real problem.

So I guess if you need to store your car outside under a cover the best advice I can suggest is that you frequently take it off, and also try to keep the car's paintwork clean to minimise scratching/abrassion due to dust and wind blowing the cover around.

Pat,

I'll take a look. I bought this cover by mistake some years ago, then could not get the UK agent to give me a refund when I realised it did not fit my car .... so I guess it's been out of the box just once. I'll take a look to see if there are any code labels on it, as I have never checked before. More in the coming days.

Alex.

California Car covers list one for a Berlina, which is slightly larger than a Ti.

However, when I ordered a cover for my Spider 6 years ago they mentioned that they had patterns for any number of cars.

Might be worth a call.

Ti Cover

I faced the same situation when I recently acquired a Ti. Indeed, a phone call was all it took. They had the pattern for a Ti or Super, even though the web-site only listed Berlinas.

At Bob's suggestion I'd sent them an e-mail, awaiting reply. Thanks Wayne, I'll just give them a call on Monday.

I had my Ti up at Glenn Oliveria's this and most of last week; people really liked these goofy sedans, despite the sad shape that my car is in.

Pat, if rust is your concern, a TI left outside under any type of car cover is going to continue to rust. A waterproof cover will trap moisture under the cover and speed up rusting. A breathable cover will at least let things dry out when the sun comes out. And, yes, dust will find its way through the breathable cover.

My reason for covering a car is to keep the sun off the paint, dash and interior. When a quality covers starts deteriorating from UV rays after 5-6 years, it becomes clear how much my interior might have deteriorated without the cover.

Talking

When I ordered the cover for my Sprint I learned that for a few dollars more they will embroider "Alfa Romeo"on the front. In Red.

And for a mere five dollars they will leave off the "California Car Covers" logo.

California Car covers has it. I got one a few years back for my super. They don't list it on the site but they do have the pattern and it fits perfectly well.

Thanks for all of your comments, guys! I didn't realize that so many of my friends own salons; welcoming myself to the fold....

No problem Patrick. See you next summer in Sonoma? I'll be driving my Super x-country again.
