Hello John,

Do you have any pictures of your ‘36 interior? An original colour example would be a real treat to see.

Don't have the training to do that. I recently pulled out one window surround to try for a color match as that same grey color is called out for the wheels on a black 36 open car. Haven't got that accomplished yet. When I get a color code i will post it.

The color chart in the back of Josh Malk's "The Complete Cord" shows the light gray contrasting interior with the black exterior on both 1936 and 1937 closed cars. Anyone can make a mistake, but Josh put a lot of research into the making of that chart.

The same color chart is also in Josh's Cord book " The Timeless Classic", so I would have to assume that the chart in "The Timeless Classic" is a simple carry over .
I have to go with info directly from factory references. Engineering change records are written by those working to produce the cars. The color charts put out by the museum for the 37's is a copy of factory info from another factory source that has Auburn Automobile Company at the bottom of the page where the black #32 color combination is found and swatches of leather and cloth.
Mistakes can easily be made and not caught when putting out a completely new book.
