Jonathan, This is the way I bought it so I can’t tell you anything about the color. Not sure if l am going to repaint it or not, but are all L29 painted undercarriage one of the same colors as the exterior?

Regarding your inquiry as to color of frame/undercarriage on Cord Models L-29 I must defer to the experts on the marque, viz. Richard Greene , Mike Huffman and Dick Teeter. You may wish to ask the same question of Dr. John Bools of North Carolina who owns a very original 1932 Cord L-29 Brougham , the frame of which may never have been disturbed/repainted. Our ACD Club Certification Supervisor Jim O'Brien may have information based on his having inspected L-29s during the intensive certification process. The contact information for all of these gentlemen is in your ACD Club Membership Directory. I am hoping to learn the serial number of your machine which has been requested by Mike Huffman. Have a great weekend, Jack Richards , ACD # 1080 at Chesterfield, Missouri.

The stoneguards with the basketweave pattern you say you were looking for I believe use to be made by a fellow in Pennsylvania (Henry Yeska) and when he died (or slightly before) his stoneguard business was bought by a radiator company called Brassworks www.thebrassworks.net . My impression is: all be it a super neat and impressive piece I have never seen a factory photo of one with basketweave "aka" Packard style basketweave insets- I am leaning toward the basketweave being a figment of someones imagination of what an impressive car of the period should have on it. The stoneguard that is on ebay is actually what would have been offered on your car as a factory accessory (I think it matches the John Bools car). I may be wrong on this, but it is what I always ....

This is a similar guard you probably really want l-29cord.com/finished-projects/1929-l-29-2928451/

I think there is a picture of an L29 stone guard in the 'Approved Factory Accessory's' Book published circa 1931. I have one, but due to a new rearrangement of our library, I can not find it.
