1940's DREAM CAR
The Envy of all boys....
1930 Cord L-29 Cabriolet
1937 Cord 812 Cabriolet
The Cord Corporation founded by Errett Lobban Cord (1894-1974). Other transportation entities included in the Cord Corporation were Stinson Aircraft, Checker Cab and American Airways which later became American Airlines.
Long and low, the front-wheel-drive Cord 810 had a conventional radiator but retained Buehrig’s concealed headlamps and blunt “coffin nose” front end with wraparound horizontal bars. Under the hood was a 125-horsepower Lycoming V-8 mated to a four-speed gearbox actuated by a Bendix Electric Hand shifter.
