Cord pioneered front wheel drive in production applications with the L-29 in the late 20's. The A-C-D company then created a "Baby" Duesenberg which became in 1936 the Cord 810 with front wheel drive, Lycoming V8 power and a legendary body design from Gordon Buehrig. Offered in four styles, the most practical and attractive of all is the four-passenger Phaeton, combining the enjoyment of a convertible with comfortable accommodations for four passengers. This example, beautifully and characteristically presented in Cigarette Cream (can you imagine an auto maker calling a color "Cigarette Cream" in today's politically correct environment?) with contrasting Brown leather upholstery and a Chocolate Brown cloth top, is an older CCCA National First Prize winning restoration that has been correctly restored, then consistently maintained, carefully driven and sympathetically used. It runs great, shifts correctly and is simply gorgeous. In addition to its original radio and wide whitewall tires it has a set of flexible outside exhaust headpipes as fitted to the supercharged 812s, an embellishment frequently added to un-blown Cords for appearance and style. This is a quality automobile in exceptionally attractive colors that will bring pride and satisfaction to its next owner.
