Westchester 1500A was a black or dark blue car from the factory with a blue pleated interior.. The paint and upholstery book indicates that a geneva blue car would have a dark blue broadcloth interior.

What color was your car originally? The paint and color book says a palm beach tan or black car would have a deep maroon broadcloth interior., combinations 30 and 32 respectively.
The paint book has rich maroon, thrush brown and clay rust external colors with a light tan broadcloth interior, combinations34,41 and 42..

Thanks Terry, that is what we are going to do, bit of swishness. Think the body colour piping will look great with the maroon. I still think my car was maroon originally , the tan colour seems to add up, and little microscopic maroon clues here and there I have found too.

John the Westchester with Serial No 812 1500A is a unique Cord that was originally owned by Edna Cord, El's sister. It has a bolt on Factory accessory trunk plus a pleated leather interior. Attached are some pictures. It is now in Australia.

810 1500A is a plain West Chester that is sitting in my barn and it has the characteristics that I previously noted with the original door panels still hanging in place.
To repeat, maroon cars per the paint book did not come from the factory with maroon interiors. but with a tan interior. Tan cars came with a maroon interior.

John, you must excuse my mistake simply because 810 1500 A is not listed in The Timeless Classic or Cord Complete and you only said 1500 A.
Have you let Ron Irwin know about this "unknown Cord"?
The ACD Club Judges accept that interior variations could be ordered at extra cost from the Factory but not special paint. Rick Hulett documented numerous original cars with trim variations.

My trimmer unearthed this from the back of the front seat, dated 2 days after my 11th birthday, I think it's about time the interior had a re-fresh !
