Brand DescriptionIn 1960 Bill Colgan had a shop in Burbank, California with 5 employees doing custom auto and boat upholstery. No request seemed unusual at the time, from suede leather headlining to diamond tufted rumble seats. One day a group of Lockheed engineers brought in a ragged piece of canvas with sewn-in wooden slats, rubber bands, crude hooks and other miscellaneous innovations. They asked if he would be interested in making about a dozen of these, it was a protective cover used by the Porsche factory for road testing new cars.
The company relocated to Newport Beach, California10 years later where some enthusiastic Porsche friends asked Bill if he would make a version of the cover for the 911 series. He designed a 911 version from memory.For the first couple of years the only covers they made were for Porsche vehicles. As orders gradually increased they decided to go into other makes.
The Colgan Custom car cover is still the standard used for reference by all of those who have entered the business in the last few years. To bear out this statement, there isn't a cover on the market that hasn't copied parts or all of the Colgan Custom Bra. Colgan was approached by Bavarian Autosport and they entered into an agreement to sew in an opening for the BMW hood emblem on Bavarian Autosport's full and hood bras and they are the only one that sells this unique bra.
Covercraft acquired Colgan Custom in 2009, and they are committed to continuing the tradition of design and manufacturing excellence Colgan Bra's are known for - setting standards by which others are measured. Still Made in USA using premium Haartz vinyl, new applications and patterns are added weekly.
