headlight body color? was created by wcoye
I've attached a pix of one my headlights. The body of the lamp is beautifully painted black. I'm assuming this is wrong? Getting ready to do some body work and a premium repaint and wanna get it right.

I believe yours is correct being black but... I have seen these painted body color too. My car came black and it was converted to sealed beam sometime before 1961

Bill, The cowl around the headlights should be body color on all Cords.

Dang, that's what I thought but was hoping wasn't true. Something else to disassemble. Are there any secrets to painting this thing without tearing the whole assembly apart?
BTW Your article in this month's newsletter was outstanding. Keep 'em coming.

This appears to be one of the prototypes. If its not its a handbuilt.
