Hi! What kind of finish did/do the sill plates on our 810s have? Anodized? Shiny? Mat? Mine are tired and I'd like to clean them up and get them at least close to what they're supposed to look like. Replacements are out of the question. Way too many $$$ to justify.

Highly polished aluminium in all cases. They mark so easily. When the restoration of my Cord is finished I think I will have to carry signs KEEP YOUR FEET OFF THE SILL PLATES.

High gloss finish. This armchair in a stunning example.

Thank you. No amount of polishing will ever bring mine close to these. Maybe I'm better off just cleaning mine up and not having to obsess about what happens to them ;^)

In my experience of owning and driving Cords for the last 49 years, I really question sill plates being highly polished originally
from the factory. In today's world of overly restored cars, I agree that they do look better highly polished but my experience tells me that
they were originally just bright natural aluminum finish for both the sedans and convertibles....

Well that is certainly encouraging. I may be able to get a bright finish on them.
Many thanks, Billy Bassoon
