Bill the 810s had the over riders fitted with the longer side pointed upwards. When the rear springs were recambered to raise the rear end to stop shimmy on the later production cars the over riders were turned around with the long side pointed down.

Does anyone have the correct measurements of the phaeton trunk shelf, with the larger oval window cutout?

I have a pattern that bought from Rick Hulett and I have made up a few trunk boards for a large window phaeton . Without a pattern you will need a french curve and a lot of measurements. The board is of somewhat odd thickness and is tapered at the trailing edge. I would have to look up the details.

A couple of photos with a tape measure on top would help a lot. Or if you have a paper pattern you can send me, I will gladly copy it and send yours back. I think it ~1/2" plywood. Are you saying the leading edge has the top sanded down, so that the carpet begins to drop a bit before it turns 90 degrees to be fastened to the floor?

The trunk board is made from 5/8 5 ply marine plywood. It is tapered on the rear edge from the 5/8 to 1/4 inch over a 2 inch length to assist with sliding the spare tire into the space below the board. A couple of measurements will not define it.
As I said before, I made up some extra boards. I had them for sale at Auburn in 2019. Would you care to buy one? I could bring it to Auburn this year.

They made the deck for the trunk a few different ways. I have seen a couple of early cars where the shelf was make out of wood boards. I have a couple of shelfs that do not have the tapered front. For the phaetons they had different patterns for the small and large rear windows.

Like everything else on the Cord, There were several varaitions of the shelf. It takes a lot or research to determine what is correct for the car you are working on.
