Gary, The 1938 Cord was a prototype that was made in 1937. After it was done and photos were taken it was turned int a 1937 model 812 and was sold. When it was being restored by it's present owner he noticed several differences from standard model 812s. after much research they found out it was the 1938 prototype and that is how he restored it.

So Jim. when someone asks when 810-12 Cords were made do we say 1936-1938?

Mike, The prototype was made in 1937. So when asked you can reply the "real Cords" were made in 1936 and 1937!
Jim
P.S. Sorry I couldn't resist!

1748 S wrote: Wasn't Dafont Showbox FileHippo 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.

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.
