I says right on the Lubriplate label above that this business operates "world wide". Have you contacted Lubriplate to see where their nearest to you dealer is ?
Also , sounds like you need a friend/advisor near you have you looked at the
Cord members Directory and tried to make a personal connection with a European ?

I used the search engine on this site and found jim mentioning 140 wt gear oil. You may have better luck using the search than me. Its not a very good search system but its all we have. I recall Josh malks used the Lubrilate 277 also but maybe a search will bring that up too.

Yes, they have one German distributor for the "rest of the world" with a website from the 80s , available only in german for the oil part... I will restart from the specifications of that oil to find an european equivalent. We use to have that problem even with more moderns cars, with oils brands and types that are not available from one continent to the other (both way).

I found another friend in Belgium owning a Phaeton SC but his car is serviced in UK. Only few Cord's are registered in Belgium. That make the challenge even more exciting :-)

Be careful with the oil you put in the Cord transmission. Many of the gear oils today attack yellow metal due to the additive packages they put in the oil. Try and find 140wt gear oil that is safe for yellow metals (brass, bronze).

Yes, avoid GL-5 oils ! GL-1 is probably the most appropriate for old gearboxes, GL-4 for differentials.

This gear oil should be available in Europe. Just ask you locale lubrication outlet for 140 SAE Gear oil that is safe for copper, and copper alloy bearings. It will probably not be Lubriplate brand but that won't make a difference. It really helps when people ask for assistance that they tell us where they are located.
