less successful. said to be a cord ambulance. which look a lot like the "limousine" posted earlier. a super capacity interior. and what appear to have been a drive-able cord with the super capacity trunk option. a traveling salesmans'. the song..."i like big butts" might go with that one.

Steve I wonder if the Cord with the large trunk has survived and who made it?
Attached is a picture of a similar Cord in the Brockman Collection.
It may possibly be the same car with further hood vent modifications?

my picture of the "big butt cord" was gleaned off the internet a few years back so, i think it has survived. i don't have any notes as to the location. was that a factory modification?
additionally, the ambulance/hearse has survived too. on page 1 is a photo gleaned of the internet within the last few years. if i remember correctly on that one...... it is in south america. was there more than one cord hearse?

randy, on the hupp/graham "proto-type" wasn't the cord front-end dropped entirely before production began? maybe there was some debate as to wiper placement?
on the pictured car the cord hood looks to be integrated very well into the rest of body. much better done than amateur work.
