Matthieu: this is definitely an unknown Cord. I will forward the serial number and other info to our Cord historian, Ron Irwin. Add 1000 to the frame stamp (unit number) and you get the serial number of 1704. This is how the company came up with the serial number. As with the previous posts, beware of the missing parts. They are difficult to find and expensive. Best of luck. Thank you for posting the pictures.
CORDially, Tim.

Car with serial number 1704A belongs to a man in Texas. So, somewhere along the way, things got messed up!
