More information about this cover -

A hard tonneau cover. Completely rigid, solid and strong. Zero impact. It can be fitted without drilling
any holes in the truck. All paint work protected. Does not detract from the appearance of the truck.
With the cover removed and just the hardware kit showing it still looks "show quality". See pictures below.
When the cover is fitted but open it still looks excellent and does not detract in any way from the
appearance of the truck. The cover can be removed in under five minutes. All materials and
finishes are of the highest quality. There is a choice of hardware support finishes to suit painted or
patina trucks. A water drainage system is included to prevent water from leaking into the bed.
Better than original factory quality. Just look at the pictures above.
The model shown is supported by a mirror polished stainless steel installation kit.

Free tool belt with all
orders before 31st March 2020.

Hard tonneau cover for the 1947-53 Chevy truck.

This tool belt contains 4 pockets. Store tools, cloths, anything.
It provides privacy if you want to store items forward of the tool belt (lets face it, there is not much room in the cab).
Maybe at a show you have brought a couple of seats and they can go in the bed and be hidden by the tool belt.
Whilst we do not suggest it is good for hiding valuable items, chairs or food hampers could be stored forward of the tool belt.
The bottom corners of the tool belt can be tied down to hooks in the bed. These stainless steel bed hooks slide under existing bolts.
There is a zip running along the top of the tool belt and it can be removed in seconds.
When the cover is folded and the tool belt is in place the cover and bed looks even better.
This tool belt is normally 79.95 and is free with all orders up to the 31st Aug.

Did you know we are developing a "Zero Impact" windscreen (windshield) washer system
for this Chevy truck and it should be available during May 2017? Watch this space.

How did this classic tonneau cover and web site all happen?

The managing director, who runs an international mail order and manufacturing business owns a 1952 Chevy truck.
It is featured in the pictures. This truck was purchased in 2007 and at the same time he started the web site at -
This web site shows all of the restoration process and the modifications to this truck.
Eventually he wanted to make a good tonneau cover for this truck but not being in the motor trade
he had never considered marketing the product until he thought seriously about it in April 2016.
From that point onwards it was his intention not just to produce a cover of the highest possible
standard but to try to market the product within 12 months.
After a year of design, testing, prototypes and manufacturing it was ready by 1st May 2017
At the same time, this web site, which until then, for a few months only announced the pending arrival,
was updated and "went live" with all of the pictures, information and ordering details of this new cover.
You can now order this high quality tonneau cover for your truck.

This tonneau cover (bed lid) is for the 1947-53 (1947-1953) 3100 1/2 ton Chevy truck (stepside 6'5" bed).
At the present time it will not fit the 1954 or 1955 Chevy trucks.
This may be possible in the future.

We supplied this cover to a customer in the USA.
He sent us this feedback with pictures in March 2022.
