Great set of period pictures John. The sedan and phaeton appear to have the same number plate.
Attached are copies of a picture that was recently donated to the Connersville Museum. The picture was originally taken in
Connersville outside the First Methodists Church on North Central Avenue. The church is still there and has not changed. The extra hood vents are apparently from a 1936 Hupmobile.
Note painted on the door of the Cord it says "25th AAA 500 Mile Race" which was held in 1937.
The last picture comes from page 121 of the Timeless Classic, note the sign says"24th AAA 500 Mile Race" which was held in 1936.

Terry, that plate should show up often - I believe it would be a uniform manufacturer plate or perhaps one of a couple of sets of numbers as a manufacturer assigned to them by the State of Indiana.

Attached are some more period pictures, this time from the Los Angeles Library showing views of the November 1935 Auto Show. The second one is more interesting as it shows how ordinary people got down on all fours to have a look at the drive train on the exciting new Cords on display

Many L-29 factory photos use the same number license plate also.
