We are currently attempting to authentically restore a 1939 Beech Staggerwing and have been referred to your club as a possible resource. We have information that during that period, there was an overlap between auto manufacturers and aircraft manufacturers with regard to interior upholstery, leathers and carpets. Specifically our airplane used,

Seats and Ceiling - Aristocrat Parma Blue #9725
Sidewalls - Lackawanna Leather Blue HC 307
Carpet - Laidlaw # C-2300

We have reached a (hopefully temporary) dead end with the Beechcraft archives and are attempting to tap the knowledge base of some of the car clubs. We are trying to present the airplane just as it left the factory in 1939 and any help or direction you could point us in would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks very much,

Mark Holmquist

The last Auburn was made in 1936 and the last Cord in 1937.

Wasn't only one 1938 Cord made? I have seen pics and was reading about how it differed from any 36 or 37. Slopped back grill. Smooth trans cover.. Was not the Classic Cord look but still a nice Cord.

Here is a picture of the 1938 Cord prototype.

the true meaning of orphaned car.. Seems like it would be lonely looking for another and most difficult finding one off parts.
