Terry,
I checked a Westchester and a Custom Beverly this morning that have original interiors. Neither had the extra welting that you point on your car. The cars both have a welting that runs up the front, across the top, and down the back side of the doors but it is attached to the body with drive nails. Nothing at the bottom of the doors. This serves the purpose of sealing the doors from the outside air. At the bottom the sill plate has a ridge that contacts the door trim to serve the same purpose. Was this type of welting on your original door panels and what purpose would it serve?

John

Hi John we have just arrived home from a week away with our granddaughter. It has been school holidays here.
I based my door trim panels on information supplied by Mark Clayton and Tim Gilmartin whose Westchesters were restored very accurately. Mark's in particular as it is an early production Cord like mine.
At some early stage rubber door seals that were along the bottoms of the doors were dropped from production. Note, when my doors are close there is space between the door panels and the polished aluminium sill covers. The bottom of the door panels does not seal against the aluminium covers.
The last picture was taken in the Factory ............... you can see the original rubber seal along the bottom edge.

Steve.
I am confused with your comments regarding carpet strips and the seat platform.
Can you attach a sketch to clarify what you mean?

Attached is a picture of the rear seat.

Great descriptive pictures showing no questions about originality. I'm wondering why the bottom front edge has black... Maybe undercoating and the drilled holes... Maybe for air circulation to keep inside doors dry.

Body color is black. Also the car had been repainted once in its history, and door panels removed during that process.
