thinking a bit more on this. a friend who was a corvette expert was judging a car with the owner watching. he felt under the front fender and let out a slight hummm. the owner immediately started to get excited. the owner wanted to know what was wrong. my friend said this car has had an incorrect repair in the past. shouting immediately ensued. well once things calmed down the owner admitted he knew about the repair.
judges have a tough job. revealing flaws on the show field sometimes can become a bit dangerous but, it would be nice for owners to know what they need to correct too. perhaps, a form sent after show day.

Just thinking...What we've created here is essentially a restoration manual. It's cool that there has been so many contributions and soooooo m.any hits.
I've noticed that the restoration manual topic has laid fallow formany years . Would it make any sense to gather what has been gathered here (yes, poor use of sentence structure) and with some judicious editing and post it in the restoration manual category?
I enjoy searching through post to find an answer but often I'm in a hurry and have cull through a lot of stuff to find what I need to know. Whadya think?

Back to the original topic... attached are two original lined burlap pieces -- one from 810-1489F and the other from an 812 Beverly 310112S. Both cars have the original interior and both burlap pieces have the finer line spacing.

Wyn, this may seem a very dumb question but is the serial No 810 1489 F correct? The earliest listed cabriolet that I can seen in the lists of The Timeless Classic and Cord Complete has Serial No 810 2260 F
If the number is correct then you have an extremely rare Cord.

Oops. My mistake... the serial number us 810-2489F. Was looking at a photo of the chassis stamp and forgot to add the 1000.
