JimArneson created the topic: L29 Cord Camper
I have been posting information about my late father's (Ted Arneson) collection of Cord automobiles in the 810/812 forum the last few days. I addition to the 1936 and 37 cars I also have what I believe to be an L29 chassis, running gear, and engine & transmission with a crazy old motor home built on top. I am planning to sell most of the collection (including the Cord Camper) at an auction on October 19, 2013. I will include a few photos below along with a link to more in an online album in hopes that some of you might be able to shed a little light on this unique vehicle.

I am also interested in any thoughts you might have about the viability of selling an item like this at auction or other ideas about how to best get this into the hands of someone who will make use of the parts.

JimArneson replied the topic: Numbers...
It looks like I got a couple of numbers in my photo. Are these any help in identifying the engine?

It looks like the top number is 1147. The bottom number is 489212.

I am going back down to the warehouse where the "camper" is stored and will try to get some better pictures tomorrow.

Thank you for taking the time to look at this. I appreciate your help!

Jim~~~

The left fromt headlight on this "Camper Van" looks like it might be a rare Hall brand "Drumlight" that was used on Rolls~Royce Sprigfield and other large autos.
See if anything in engraved on the top of this Drumlight headlight.

I think this "camper beast" would get more attention being parted-out or at the very lest without that ugly "Camper" van body.
Scrap that big body & sell the chassis & parts.

I doubt that a standard auction house would be the best place to sell ANY of these Cord parts ?
I don't think they will bring any real money there ?

ebay auction ~~~Yes~~~but it would take forever to sell + pack & ship everything you have there !

It may be far better to sell the entire parts lot you have to a Cord Culb Member here or a Cord restorer or Cord restoration parts supplier.
