Cord Replica Creation

Okay everyone, this is a tall order. In the 70's my dad had a SAMCO Warrior Cord replica. Ever since I saw the pictures I've been obsessed with Cords. I live in North Carolina and have traveled all the way to Pennsylvania to see a real 1937 Cord. I love the old Cord but I must admit, I have a bit more love for the SAMCO Warrior. Anyway, I ship out to Basic training next July and I've been hunting one of these SAMCO Warriors. I found one for $31,000 but there's no way I'll be able to afford that before training.

So down to the big question. I love these cars and would love to let more people experience these beautiful machines. Anyway, what is the process for making a fiberglass replica car? I'm interested because I would like to make a female mold for these cars and be able to reproduce them. Obviously a huge undertaking, but I am interested.

1st you have to have something to make the mold from. If you can talk someone into letting them use a $31,000 car as a model, well you should be selling something.

Thanks for your service.

The Samco was a downsized Cord replica. I think it was 5/8th scale. The molds were purchased in the mid eighties by a guy here in Tucson. I made some parts out of the molds for him, for guys who needed to make repairs. I will check to see if he still has the molds, or is reproducing parts from them.

Sky, Check your private messages. I talked to my friend, and sent you info on an original unrestored, but driveable car he has for sale.

And Bob, it's my pleasure to be a proudly serving Combat Medic for the National Guard, and my country. I'm already training, and will be for about a year, and I love every minute of it.

Yea, I know it was, I believe it was 8/10th. I saw a 1947 Cord in a museum and it was absolutely massive. They were meant to originally be marketed as the "Baby Dussenberg"
