ACD and Collector Car Owners:

Not long ago, I was needing springs for the dash control levers on my Sportsman. Finding n.o.s. was impossible. What I discovered was that when it comes to springs, finding a spring with ALMOST the correct factory specifications won’t work. There is a reason we see all those drooping CORD dash levers on the show field. Buying a spring with NEARLY the proper dimensions is a waste of money.

So, I went in search of the exact spring. To my disappointment, catalog companies simply don’t have springs to the precise factory specs. Most automotive springs today are made in China; and asking the Chinese factories to make custom springs forces you to buy in huge quantities ($$$).

Then I located a small privately owned company in the USA, which still makes small runs of springs and wireforms to your custom specifications… still using the original equipment from before the War! So I traveled to spend a day with these guys watching how the old machines work. Cool stuff. Truly a time-warp.

So a year back, you may recall I had this same company make for me a batch of CORD dash springs. I installed them. They worked perfectly. Next I advertised the rest of these dash springs in the NL, and sold out.

More recently, I decided I would expand things, and ordered from them a batch of the following CORD springs, which I now have in inventory ready to ship.

So, I can now have made any wire Compression, Extension, Barrel, Tapered and Torsion spring within the specifications below.

Further, this company makes wireforms to customer specifications too.

Turn around time is about 3 weeks from receipt of your order.

I can provide written price quotes, but require sample product in-hand OR written specifications.

Original samples returned.

I purchased nearly every spring offered for the 812 Cords. I have sealed beam headlights so I did not purchase those. I do have new re silvered reflectors so I may eventually purchase the correct lens and then the springs... Am very satisfied with the quality too.
