I helped Shawn Miller fold the top on his V-12 Auburn Phaeton. My first thought was "this looks logical to put down and should be a far cry easier than an 851/852". And, guess what - I was wrong !

Dad and I did put the top up on the 851 Phaeton minutes before the Festival Parade this year - took less than 5 minutes and I would say a new Worlds record was set and a new milestone for just in time delivery.

"Raising and lowering the top is defined in Cord service bulletin no. 46 dated Aug. 19,1936. 10 easy steps to raise, 11 to put it down, pictures included, a total of 3 pages. It has also been covered in some of the earlier books on the 810/812."

Where may I find this? I am trying to raise the top on our 1935 Auburn 8-851 Phaeton. The entire crew of the Cirque du Soleil would not be able to raise this top without instructions!!!!
