Hello.
Can anyone please post pictures of the wiper motor surrounds behind the sun visors. Mina are missing and just very untidy holes with the roof lining coming unstuck. II have trawled online for pictures, but obviously this is not a very photographed area! Also being in the UK no other cars locally to look at.
Thanks in advance
Mervyn

Dear Sir: The body structure component about which you inquire is , I believe , common to all closed models of the Cord Models 810/812. To block or face off the opening in the wooden roof structure above the two windshields , a cut out hole into which the windshield wipers recess , there are thin metal plates ( my memory indicating about 2" x 4" ) are tacked into the wooden cross member of the roof structure and cover the wiper motors. These are installed prior to the installation of the cloth headliner. The Cord Parts List appears to identify these as Part Numbers G 6842 and 43 , beinf R.H. and L.H. Wiper control Plates. These are as stated above thin ferrous plates which would be easily replicated. You need to find a Cord owner who will allow you to copy the pattern. Lots of luck, Jack Richards.

The cover plates that Jack Richards spoke of are made from thin sheet metal. I had to make one new one so I still have one of the originals .................. somewhere . Attached is a picture of the area in question in one of the rare RHD Cords sold in Australia.
I will have a look for the one I replaced.

Hello Mervyn. Do you know the other Cord owning ACD Club members in the UK ?
I have an early Westchester that had been sold new in Canada which is known as the Actonite Cord.
