John, this is probably an area that the Cord 810 812 Judges should be involved with?
Other areas of interest are the door seals. I understand the early cars had molded rubber seals. Actually I have copies of the drawings as they were found by the Hupmobile Car Club. Information supplied by Rick Hulett shows them fitted along the bottom edges of the door panels. One notable example that can be seen with them is the Hard Topped Coupe. The pictures of it were taken in the Factory in Connersville. This Coupe was built from a Cabriolet and Cabriolets appear pretty late in 810 production. There are always interesting anomalies with Cords.
The first and second drawings are for sedans.
The third drawing is for phaetons and probably cabriolets as well.

Hi Mike. Yes he did, between the years 1958 and about 1966. He wishes he never sold it. He used it as his daily driver for a number of years as well long distance vacation trips to Florida. It was still like a new car then.

I'm sure he is happy where it ended up. It could have landed in a "collection" where it would never see the light of day again.

No classic car like an ACD should EVER end up not "out there"..... My feelings may not be shared by some car collectors. Drive them... Enjoy them. Let others enjoy the sound and sight of these fine cars.

Terry,
The more people that chime in the better. If they happen to be on the judging team that's great.
I looked at one more car, a 1936 Westchester, 1500 A. It has a bead attached to the door metal everywhere but the bottom. It is about 1/8 inch in diameter and as such it is just basically a trim item, barely coming out to the thickness of the door panel. We need SN's for the rest of the pics that were posted.
I might have a bottom door seal. I will have to see if I can locate it and check it against the blueprint.

John
