"1935 Auburn Roadster supercharged"
This is a 1935-36 style Boat Tail Speedster replicar.

"1937 Cord Conv"
This is a 1969-70 SAMCO Royale or Warrier depending on engine (Ford small block or Chrysler 440).

"1936 Cord Deluxe"
This is a homemade "Cord DeVille" made out of a 1936 Sedan. I haven't seen this car for 25-30 years. Last I knew it still had the original drivetrain.

"1935 Duesenburg Dual Cowl"
This is a 1929-32 style Duesenberg replicar. I can't see enough to tell the whole story. It is definately not an original car.

"1935 Duesenburg Roadster"
This is probably a 1966-70 Duesenberg SSJ Roadster, Neo Classic built in California on a Dodge truck chassis. I can't see the rear but the front and doors follow this theme.

Thanks alot for looking at them. So are you saying they are all replicas or kits.

Bottom line are they worth anything?

Well, anything with wheels is worth buying! The cut down Cord sedan is definately worth something if only for the drivetrain. Complete engines and transmissions are hard to find, especially if they are anywhere near driving condition. I've never seen the car myself to know if any of the body parts are still original or could be restored but there would be value there too. As a complete car.......hard to say. There are always people out there that just want something unique to drive and it doesn't really matter if it is original. I personally think a big block Samco could be fun......enjoy it and not worry about rain, road salt, door dings, ect. like you would in a real car. Those cars look like they could need a lot of work and that would eat the value up quick unless you plan on doing some work yourself. The SAMCO's I've seen on eBay are usually in the 10-20,000 range and the car you found would probably be on the low scale of that. It is very hard to tell by a picture.

Stan, you saw this de-luxe 30 yr?s ago? Was it at you facility? Could you tell some stories of some of the changes you have seen on Cord bodies that people have done then and explain some of the engine swaps you may have seen over the years?

I have seen pictures of this kind of chopping and I cannot believe this was a popular thing to do. There must have been hundreds of Cords around then for this kind of butchery.

It could be corrected with another body, as it is otherwise such a complete car. On the other hand it might be cool to preserve a few examples of this style of customizing. It hurts my eyes to look at that landau bar and cannot believe they would drill a hole in the body for it and all that filler to make up the top!

But if I had it I would paint it red and I would jump in thru the window without opening the door and speed off down the road!
