Under the bracket that supports the trans vacuum cylinder is washer spacers. When my father purchased the Cord it was in pieces. The rear mount requires spacers to lift it off the trans case so the shift lever does not contact the trans case near the front of the car. Thanks for any help. My suspicion is some cars needed this and some do not.

The shift lever should not make contact with the front of the gear box case. The spacers you mention are needed to stop the cylinder making contact with the gear box cover plate. Just do a trial assembly to check for the cylinder clearance. Put it through the gear selections to check. If you raise it too much it can foul the sheet metal cover or scoop as some people call it.
You could also add a dip stick to check oil level in the box, details are in Sid Ayres gear box booklet.

The shift cylinder should be checked for clearance when reverse gear is selected because the shift lever swings a greater arc distance thereby causing the cylinder to drop lower than any other gear.
