i don't want this to become a cord "toy" section of the forum. i'm always looking for interesting uses of the cord image. i think the next couple photos speak to many hours of hand work on some fairly common wyandotte cord toy cars. they sort of fill out the model line.
i found these listed on ebay. apparently, a few of each were hand created by altering the familiar pressed steel cars. the company was called new era toys. marvin silverstein was the owner. these were created 20 years back.

1st car is said to be a kurtis special. 2nd car is said to be the origianal 1940 huppmobile protoype. both heavily borrowing from the cord design (and from the parts bin too).

For the Cord owner / restorer who loves his automobile what better way to check the tyre pressures than to use a CONNERSVILLE pressure gauge?
I found this little GEM on the Internet recently. On the front it says "CONNERSVILLE INDIANA" and on the opposite side it says "AUTO PARTS CO". We don't know exactly when it was made however it has some age to it.
I suppose it could also be used by Auburn owners who love their cars.

never saw a finished version of this cord art deco hot rod. it looks to be an expensive one."lots of detail. lots of effort. the society of car restorers" or something like that.
