#1 It is my opinion that black and carmine is very appropriate. It would also have a harmonizing pinstripe.
#2 I would say 98% of the cars of that era came with black walls. White walls were available, but as you mentioned they wee white walls on both sides. Single sided white walls were not available until 1939. I share your opinion that the white walls might detract from the chrome wire wheels.
#3 Yes black tops were available.

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

Congradulations Victor. I am so happy to see you have purchased the car. I think you will really enjoy working on and driving it. It seems so long since you were in Vancouver. I also have purchased another car but not so quite in such a ready to enjoy condition.

Curt, thank you!

Answers 2 and 3 are very clear.

On paint, what I am trying to figure out is if painting it as the Speedsters were, in a basic color with all the raised bolsters or mouldings in the contrasting color, would be appropiate or correct for a cabriolet.

I sent you a PM for some parts I need, hoping you can help me with those.

Thanks again!
Victor

Hey Kirk! Good to hear from you!
You are to "blame" for my love for Auburns. After that one hour drive on your fabulous Speedster, all the way from your place back to Vancouver, I just had to get an Auburn! Best ride of my life!!
Congratulations on your new coupe. Beautiful cars! And with the quality of work you do at your place, I am sure it will soon turn into one of the nicest coupes around.
