May I talk you into sticking your head into your trunk and doing some more detailed photos (including some overall, in corners, and ... ) ?

Thought I would capture and post pictures of the trunk fabric in my 812 Beverly. No idea if it is original but sure looks like it to me. Hope these can be of some help.

I very much dislike pouring cold water on an attempt to provide original trunk interior upholstery , HOWEVER , as I earlier posted on this thread the trunk interior views posted by Rum Runner on this post and #38485 are of 1937 Cord Supercharged Phaeton S # 32410S , of which I was a previous owner. It was restored by the late Col. Leonard Redburn of Missouri and it was he who installed the present excellent trunk upholstery. Sorry to be a spoiler , but we need to search for and find original upholstery examples in both Cord and Auburn marques to assure the accuracy of our restorations.

Hi Jack, I agree entirely with your comments. I have attached a picture which shows three material samples.
In the background is the original piece from behind the rear seat, it has thick black lines.
To the RHS is the sample supplied by Rick Hulett which has thin black lines with a finer pattern.
At the lower LHS is the material I made up. It is based on the original sample but I made the lines too thin. I was not looking at the bigger picture at the time. With care I can salvage the job by redrawing the lines thicker.
So we have two distinct line patterns, one with thick lines in early production cars and one with fine lines in later production cars.
I believe the background colour was all the same. The sample of the original material in the picture has faded a lot.
My Cord has Serial No 1586 A, I have no idea when the line pattern changed.

Mr. Richards, 1937 Cord S#32410S , which you previously owned , is a Beverly sedan and NOT a Phaeton. Foolish old man. You should know better , and used to. The other Mr. Richards with clearer brain.
