While I was at the Museum I photographed the coffin nose Cord of 1936 and 1937. The Yellow one (1936) did not have a hood ornament. However, the Red one (1937) did. In looking at the photo's now it appears that the hood ornamet on the red Cord (1937) is exactly like the one found on the 1936 to 1937 Auburn. Did the coffin nose Cord's have hood ornaments and if so, were they the same as found on the 1936 1937 Auburn.

If your refering to the front of the hood then those were only found on the 36 and 37 Cords. The other hood ornament was an oddly looking winged piece that attached to the top of the hood.It looked very much like the tail section of most airplanes.Most felt it was not very becoming looking.

This is the 36 or 37 Cord hood winged ornament that most will install. Sadly I do not have a pic of the other top of the hood ornament.

Is that the same top hood ornament found on the 1936 & 1937 Auburns?
