I am trying to find a Cord bumper jack. I know the early Cord bumper jack was a bit of a failure however was that jack used on any other makes besides the Cord?
Attached is a drawing of the complete jack courtesy of Bruce hanson

Unconfirmed legend has it the the jack, or portions of it, were used for some Lincoln Zephyrs

What tools came with Cords, I wonder if they were the same as Auburns

The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.

The tool kit consisted of the following items in a special bag.
Monkey wrench, hammer, screw driver, pliers, wheel cover removing tool ( that actually damaged the covers ) and a spark plug wrench. I believe AC Parts in Kansas carries these tool sets.

Thanks Dave, this is worth investigating. The Cord bumper jack required a lot of press tooling to make and assemble the parts of the jack mechanism. It does make sense that the jack was used by others however they are very scarce. Peter Kelly tells me he has only seen two at Hershey in ten years.
