I don't see any "bumper guards" (override protection).

Looking at the firewall the "pressed stiffeners" have square corners hence it must be one of the Hand Built cars. It also has smooth bumper side panels.
The grill does not have the turned up edge at the back of the louvers like all "normal production" Cords.
I believe this must be one of the Hand Built cars and maybe one of the actual Show cars.
The attached pictures are of Serial No 810 1044 A which now lives in Australia.

For the edification of interested parties Ron Irwin's Master Cord List shows this car at Page 1 of the Cord Model 810 Westchesters , viz. Serial #1044A , Orig. Engine # FB1822 , Present Engine # FB1506 and CMC Body Plate # C90 136. The owner is shown as being one T. Ruhling of Missouri, USA with his date of acquisition being 1976. A note HB indicates this to be a Handbuilt Cord. Another note says "Car has "Armchair" Beverly seats installed. Not a factory installation." We tend to give considerable weight to the scholarship of Cord Historian Irwin but it would be most helpful if the stub frame # could be obtained from the present Australian owner. We await further comment from "Down Under", Cheers, Jack Richards in cold Missouri, USA.

Hi Jack.
Yes this HB Cord has an arm chair beverly interior. I read in an old Newsletter that this car was originally Cadet Grey with a blue interior. The current owner is in Melbourne.
