  1. When just getting started in the old car hobby, I drove my best friends 851 Auburn Speedster from Ct. to the ACD meet in Williamsport Pa. My best friend was driving his S/C Cord convertible coupe. I must say with the top up, my feet roasted on a hot day with the exhaust crossing under the drivers floor boards. It was a thrill driving the Auburn both ways and it was a year or two before I completed the restoration on my first Cord.
  2. Edinmass: with what you said about pure provenance, it’s surprising that the one owner Duesenberg that belong to Coburn in West Hartford Ct. that sold about 3 or 4 years ago didn’t bring more money. From my understanding it was all original except for a White truck transmission.
  3. new price is $325 plus $20 shipping in US. my email is cordseller1@gmail.com
  4. If you follow the history of Auburn, Cords, or Dusenbergs, you know who’s Dallas Winslow
  5. Appears to be a early 1936 Westchester with the flat back trunk and it would not have pleated interior seats. I say it’s a early 1936 because the way the firewall was patched, it may have had the cowl oil and filter tubes coming from the passenger cowl vent. I don’t see the finger grip indentation on the cowl vent but that wouldn’t rule out it has been changed. If it was a 1936 arm chair Beverly with the flat back trunk, the seats would be all together different.
  6. Nizen machine is alive and well and operating out of Bethlehem, Ct. they recently did all the engine machine work on my Cord. Next time I talk to Pete Nizen, I’ll ask him about the dusenberg engine. Reminds me of another story I heard about Pratt and Whitney aircraft in East Hartford Ct. the story I heard is that they had two dusenberg engines running some type of turbins during World War Two. I don’t know the accuracy of that story.
  7. I highly recommend Bills Auto Works. He moved some Cord parts for me door to door. Very reasonable and did what he said he would do.
  8. Looks like part of the topic was moved to AACA shows and events????
  9. Best I can tell its a 1936 flat back westchester. The body tags indicate it’s a westchester with the letter A. It has the early cowl water and oil filler. I believe it’s standard wheelbase and 6 louver grille. It’s a odd ball it that it had pleated interior but does not appear to be an armchair Beverly. Can’t see enough of the seats to accurately determine. If it is, that would make it rare with only about 12 of the arm chair beverly’s produced. Car belongs to a restoration shop in Castle Rock Colorado that had restored about 20 Cords.
  10. Have a pilot ray spread light for sale in great restorable condition. What you see is what you get. Some small dents in light retaining ring and light. $325.00 plus $20.00 shipping in USA. An extremely hard part to find found on many of the large classics. I am located in west hartford ct. My email is cordseller1@gmail.com
  11. Joe: I want to compliment you on your knowledge of this swap. If this was something that I needed done, I would reach out to you to see if I could hire you to make the swap for me because you sound like you know what you’re talking about.
  12. I don’t know if this is the car but it looks like the Cord that was owned by long time ACD club member Jim Lawerence who has passed away. If it is, it was a correctly and well sorted Cord.
  13. I know the gentleman selling this modified Cord Phaeton and he is a Cord expert and honest person to deal with. He’s owned and restored many award winning Cord along with reproducing many hard to find Cord parts. I don’t know this car but I speak highly of the seller.
  14. I also highly recommend Bills Auto Works. Previous post has his contact info.
