If you can find a copy of Aerodynamiks des Kraftfahrzeugs,by Baron Reinhard von Fachsenfeld,1951,it's packed with stuff like that.
I've been working with it slowly over a number of years now,converting the tables into smaller bite size visuals.
You'll see Kamm's actual wind tunnel model configurations with accompanying Cd for each 'slice.'
If you're in a hurry,get a local librarian to locate the nearest library which has a copy.You probably won't be able to do a inter-library loan,but it would be worth a trip.
