Henry Portz fitted one to his 812 Cabriolet. I believe it looked the same as the original generator and worked like a charm.
Henry's cabriolet was extremely accurate. Email him or give him a call. He is in the Directory.

This is true. I spoke when Henry about this upgrade.He felt it was well worth it to improve his car. I saw his cab when it had less than 100 miles on it at the Santa Maria meet a few years ago. It was gorgeous in every way. He worked on that car for over 30 years.

100 miles on the clock, you got there later than me. When we visited Henry at his home in 2011 he gave me a short drive. I watched it turn over to 67 miles. That car was amazing, it really was a pity he didn't keep it as it was just so perfect in every detail. Actually we ran out of fuel so I flagged a passing car which stopped and took Henry home to get some gas. So here I was in a foreign country ( I'm an Australian ) sitting in one of the best Cords in the world enjoying the ambience .................................. and I couldn't even steal it! It was not long before Henry returned and we were mobile again. What an experience that was. I think Henry spent around 32 years of his spare, spare time from working on other peoples Cords on his own magnificent cabriolet.

Not what I was asking, Mike. Thanks for your two cents worth though.

I am with Mike on this; original equipment works well.
My 31 Auburn was original and I never in 10 years of driving ran the battery down.

I have used a gener-Nater for about ten years now. No problems. Battery stays fully charged.
