Cord blueprints was created by Thomas Wilcock
A friend gave me old copies of the Hupmobile Club newsletter, the HUPP HEARALD. The club had received several cabinets of blueprints from the Hupmobile factory. The president, Brian Spear and some members are in the process of scanning them. In their summer 2018 newsletter it was noted that a print created by the Auburn Car Company dated in 1935 for the Cord 810 was found in the collection of prints. There could be other Cord prints found as they go through them all. Perhaps the ACD Club or ACD Museum should contact Brian to get copies of the Cord prints as they turn up. Perhaps the Hupmobile Club has already contacted the ACD Club.

Truly something many Cord owners would be interested in. I know I'm interested in particular body blueprints of the cowl vents. Sadly mine are missing...

Hi Tom, this is really exciting news that needs to be saved and shared.
Why don't you introduce Brian Spear to Brandon Anderson at the ACD Museum in Auburn. It will be very interesting to see what is found.

The Hupmobile Club newsletter is the "Hupp Herald" and not as I previously posted. They estimate they have about 50,000 blueprints and it will take a while for the volunteers to scan them all. I don't have contact information for Brandon Anderson But I did let our ACD Club president know.

We've been digitizing our entire archive for the past 6 years now and adding more Cord blueprints to the mix would be excellent! Hope to hear from you soon. Thank you!

Tom, I contacted Brian Spear . He told me they have around 500 original drawings of the Hupmobile Skylark and approximately 100 drawings that originated from the Auburn Automobile Company.
Wheels are in motion with the ACD Museum in Auburn.
What an absolutely wonderful discovery! Thanks for sharing this mate.
