Hi Tom, just checked my '36, the anchor pin (pivot pin) is positioned approx 10 minutes forward at the bottom, ie, the wheel cylinder sits approx 10 minutes towards the rear of the car. Hope this helps.

Hi 810cord,

This is EXACTLY the confirmation I was looking for! I will reassemble these brakes with no further qualms.

Thank you so very much!!!

Hi,

Well, the calendar says that winter is here, and I hate scraping snow and ice at 5:30 in the morning. So the Cord is going once again to the warehouse for four months or so to make room in my home garage for my daily driver. There's plenty to do here over the winter, however, without the car actually being here.

It will come back home in March or April.

Hi,

Cord 1509 A is winter-stored at the warehouse. These photos were on the ACD cars page of facebook--they have many details useful for re-assembly. Here's the link to my piece of the cloud:

Hi,

I am looking for a headliner maker or a headliner pattern for 1509A, a 1936 Cord Westchester 4-door sedan renumbered as a 37. Any leads will be appreciated.

Hi,

I received a quote from SMSautofabrics.com with a quote for a headliner to match original.

Has anyone dealt with these folks, and if, so, any recommendations?
