Did they take a lot of liberties with the interior of this car, or was it a custom order.  I see the paperwork, but can't read it.  This is a beauty.  Probably over $100K I'll bet.

That is an arm chair Beverly interior. It is done correctly.

100G gets you an open one in fine order. 

 

The 100G open cars tend not to shift themselves. It takes a little more today to get a good one.

Cord is one of the few cars where you got two basic styles.  An open car or a 4 door sedan,  so there are no "bridge" cars like a coupe or even 2 door sedan.  So I would say yes if Cord made a coupe that would be the 100G car then 150G for a nice open one 2+ condition. But I would think Normal good money for a sedan is tapped out in the 60's maybe 70ish,  unless it's supercharged,  then that's a different story.  How many sedans have changed hands for near or above 100G.  I've seen a few for sale for Years.  I know of a beautiful Phaeton that was freshly restored by an ACD man That I would say had to be a #1 or extremely close that took a little time to sell for 150 and not sure if he ever actually got all of that or a little south.  He is the type of guy that built his cars,  had a surplus of parts, then drove them a few states to ACD meets.

Well, I learn something every day.  I've looked at Cord's since 1953 and never have seen one.

There are 3 Cord coupes, 1 of which is original and 2 are copies (If I'm remembering correctly).   The original would bring more money than a standard cabriolet.  If they were made in equal number probably not.  But these days,  attractive coupes (think 32 3 window) can bring the same or more than an open car.

It was a 1936 only option and cost more than the standard interior. It could be done in any color cloth or leather the owner desired. Factory color choices for the Cord were only suggestions. Gordon Buehrig's personal Cord sedan had this interior. Here are a few more examples.

3 coupes were built originally. Today there are 4 or 5 that exist. I have seen at least 3 in the wild. One of the new ones has a fiberglass roof. Real coupes have an M in the serial number. A real coupe would bring more money than a Sportsman Cabriolet.

being a Beverly- it will also have the "knapsack" trunk, which I never liked that much- so while you get that great interior, body style changes a bit.

 

also if I remember correctly, any color could be custom ordered for paint for an extra 125.

I don't like the fact that there are more existing that were built by the factory.  That amounts clones and the hobby has never supported clones.  Just my opinion.

A legit leather arm chair car is a premium by far over a standard Westchester.    The coolest Cord I ever saw was at the reunion when I was 10 years old.    It was a long wheel base Beverley with leather arm chairs and a divider window.  Have never seen another.

Well yes but we are also talking super limited numbers of a fairly desirable car.  I meant regular production scenarios where there would have been more coupes,  built than convertibles,  More sedans built than anything, etc.
