What a sad ending to a once fine rolling sculpture. It appears to be melting back into Mother Earth. Some of the original front stub frame may be there but I see different schocks up front. The original steering box appears in place. So with not seeing more closeup pics I can't say what is there. I wonder if the firewall mounted voltage regulator is correct for the car.
Thanks for the great pics too.No matter condition, I still like seeing Cords in any condition. It gives me hope..

Can you tell us what State (location) this car is in. I hauled a similar Auburn back to Indiana to use pieces of it for my car. I kind of like doing that "kind of stuff"
Thanks for the photos....

It's sad to see any car in this condition, let alone a rare Cord. I hope that the remaining parts will find good homes.

I was thankfully able to nab the stock heater. It's pretty crusty, but that's fine. Anything can be rebuilt.
Can't wait to start restoring it.

Its great you were able to "save the heater". Please be careful opening the doors.Might apply some aerkroil on this part so you do not break the hinges.Actually any threaded fitting will need some Aerokroil on it.
Thanks for the great pic of the original Aerotherm name tag too.I do not have one on my original heater so will be looking for one. I recall Stan has one in the catalog.
My heater came off the firewall with a thick piece of cardboard under it with a hole template of where to drill holes to mount it. I posted pics of this a few years ago.
Still very sad to see ANY car look like this. I would have been interested in the cowl vent area but.. I saw a cowl vent on the rear trunk area and guess this "came off" with very little action. So the cowl between the windshield and hood probably is rusted thru and not any good to me. But insterested to see pics of it anyway.
