Are the under $200 covers adequate?
You have to buy a car cover based on your intended use. Sounds like you just need an indoor only cover to keep the dust off. I have a Dust stop cover for my 95 Trans Am and it works well for that. It's an indoor cover only so it wouldn't be any good for outdoor storage. They do make dust stop covers that can be used outdoors also if you think you may need to use it outdoors occasionally. My son has this kind for his 74 Javelin and it works good for keeping the dust off also.

Both of our 57s have got California indoor flannel under covers, do a great job and ones 10yrs old, the other 8yrs, bot still like new and keep the dust off. Pricey, though.

garaged and just for dust. another less cost option: eBay has tons of covers, can save money . doesn't cost anything to look there.

Default Car Cover

I prefer CoverCraft and have used there products for a prior 3 year run on a 68 Chevelle. The Custom Form-Fit Car Cover was pricey but they do have options around $200 for base indoor materials.

As a note, I saw on Bitchin Rides they use a satin cover then over cover the satin with a clearplastic carcover.

I actually just got a cover from California Car Cover last week for the Del Ray. Although garage kept I opted for the best one they had for indoor /outdoor use. It made sense for me for the extra money to have one more versatile. It was under 200 bucks with free shipping and a few packs of micro fiber cloths to entice you to buy . It fits nicely . I would have liked a bit more thiskness but it works fine.

I have California Car covers for four of my vehicles. I bought one for my '56 Chevy 2dr, Ford F150 pick up, 5 series BMW, and my wife's S Type Jag and they all fit great, but last year I bought one for my '55 Nomad and it fit terrible. I sent it back and I got my money back, but not without having to make a few calls.
In spite of the latter, I plan to order another one for the Nomad, and one for my '49 Olds 98. They told me they had redesigned the one for the Nomad. I've been buying the indoor/outdoor but that doesn't mean they're waterproof. For that I'm using a plastic tarp over an old blanket on my '62 Vette. I'll have to reverse that on my Olds as it's a convertible.

Here's some pics of three of my cars under covers. Two pics of my '56, one of my BMW and my corvette is covered with a cheapie from Summit that's supposed to be water proof. The one covering the Chevy has a soft lining because the car is black and any rub would be highlighted. The 'vette is in need of a paint job so no worries about rubs.
