Hello!!!

I am the owner of a Cord Royale 1970 model. This is the one with the 440 Chrysler engine. I need to do some repairs on the brakes, and wondered if anyone here knows where I can get parts.

Thank you!!!

kind regards
Tom

Hello: I to am an owner of a 1970 Samco Cord. The front end of the car is a 1 ton Ford van straight axle. You should be able to get brakes from that. Duane

I have a Samco Serial no 54. I have been told the frame and running gear is International Harvester. Anyone have any experience with a disc brake conversion for the front.

The Samco's were deliviered with two different engines:

Royale: Chrysler 440 Magnum
Warrior: Ford 302.

The Royale also had longer wheelbase
