That looks like an 810th Cord behind the Pastel Blue L-29 Cord Cabriolet.

It looks like the door may be shorter but the word was that the pictures were from 1958, before the 8/10th. That is a beautiful L29, the scene made him make time to snap a shutter.

I vote with Ken, that sure looks like an 8/10 Cord. I'll bet the L-29 had clearance issues with those big tires too.

The photo with Alex Tremulis with Isabel and Gertrude Duesenberg
is wonderful, it seems like it was taken yesterday.
And he looks so young and healthy!
A lot of time the kodachrome colors will change and the image has survived perfectly.
Was Isabel the daughter of Fred? Gertrude the wife of Fred?
They appear to be family friends.
Isabel was a very sophisticated looking lady, every bit Duesenberg.
She reminds me of the lady in the Dusenberg advertisements.
I have to keep reminding myself these are fifty year old pictures.

The Cord just looked powder blue to me, but these colors seemed to be a host of names, maybe saying Ceylon blue for the L29 is correct, it has a nice ring to it. The tires were large but the wide whites did not look quite right, maybe they came a little more narrow back then.
