Cord 810 (1936)

#1
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:

Cord 810

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 :)
