The correct color of plug wires for 36-37 Cord: Was it black with tracers or just plain black?

Hello. The correct color for spark plug wires for a 1936-37 Cord 810-812 is either black or maroon. This information is available to you in the 810-812 Judging Standard that is provided in the current Membership Directory. This same Judging Standard will be posted shortly on the club website under Judging Standards.

Best of luck.

I agree with what Mark posted. My 37 Beverly had what I believe to be an original set of plug wires. I removed one wire from the tubes they run in and to me that wire appeared to be maroon. I understand the oak with a tracer color is ... So I'm told acceptable too but please make sure before purchasing a set. Points are deducted in judging for non original appearance too.

Hi all... Actually, the black and maroon wires are all that is accepted in the current standard. The oak (yellow) wires with the red stripe or tracer, while acceptable for Auburn automobiles, are not included for the Cord 810-812 models.

I have few strands of the Maroon wires from various 1935-851 / 1936-852 Auburn projects - I would call the color "Black Cherry", "Burgundy", or "Cord Rich Maroon" and it is a shame the wire has not been reproduced as it really is beautiful. My assumption for the color was that the wire was done to match the Bakelite distributor caps. As to why it is on an Auburn (all be it could be correct as factory engine photos are near non-existent), my best explanation would be Auburns receiving service from the same dealerships and I assume the parts-company sold wire sets fro some period of time.

I have it in factory print that the 34-36 Auburn plug wires are BLACK . I have some originals and they are shinny black not like rubber. The 31-32 and maybe 33 cars have oak with the red and black tracers.

The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.
