    Here's the original factory Cord 810 Westchester sedan blueprint.
    I'm actually looking for simar types for other Cord models. Found none here.
    What do you have your "Cord" section for? :wink:

    Fantastic print, in deed. I got exactly the same, but of much worse quality.
    Hey nb, do you know where I can find accurate technical specifiacation about the Cord (810 and 812)? I can't find anything convenient.

    Greetings,
    Fabian

    I have a 1/12 scale AMT 1937 Cord 812 model that I built some years ago. I'm tempted to resize the scan...and use it as part of my display stand :)
