    Has anyone found or know of a place that has the pattern for an Ellena or Boano car cover?

    Need to buy one in the coming months.

    Ed: There is no Covercraft pattern for a Boano or Ellena. However, here are pattern numbers for:

    250 GT Europa #124
    250 GT TdF #168
    250 GT PF Coupe or Cabriolet #50

    You pick the one that will be closest to the Boano and just order it through any Covercraft dealer. We use AJ USA in California. For indoor use, we buy the PD series (poly cotton drill).

    I fondly remember my dad using a Datsun 240Z car cover for his 246 Dino. It said DATSUN on the front. He's been asked several times how long he's owned his Nash Metropolitan (1958 Ellena) - maybe you can find a cover for a Nash :) I've followed him to several gas sations in my 1969 Chevrolet Z28 and people tell me how nice my car is and walk right past his - I'm sure to remind him of this EVERY TIME I GET A CHANCE :) Good luck on your search - maybe down play it a bit...how about a 1955 Chevy cover ???

    That’s a good need to have!

    A Volvo P1800 is quite similar in dimensions. Get one made with some stretch material and you should be good.

    Would you like to share a serial number?
