Today the Cord 810/812 still looks fresh, interesting, creative and elegant. Imagine how impressive it was over seventy years ago when it was new. There was, literally, nothing else on the market like it. Only the Chrysler Airflows came close to being as imaginative and aerodynamically effective as the Cord, but somehow the Gordon Buehrig Cord harmonized with the market. Chrysler's Airflow fell flat. Only a very few Cord 810/812s were the attractive, sporting and practical Phaeton, coachwork that has become especially appreciated by today's collectors for its mix of style, top-down enjoyment and the practicality of room for four friends. Fastidiously restored in every detail to show car condition, this 1937 Cord 812 Phaeton is carefully detailed in every respect. Finished in brilliant Red with a Tan leather interior and Tan cloth top, it has a set of Cord driving lights, a radio, an ash receiver under the dashboard and rides on a set of Firestone branded wide whitewall tires. The dash itself has been painted to match the upholstery and carries a set of gauges and knobs that have been restored to perfection. The top bows have been disassembled, carefully prepared, re-chromed and neatly reassembled and adjusted for tight weather protection and smooth operation. It's that kind of restoration, with nothing overlooked and no shortcuts. A Concours veteran, it will be a satisfying and proud addition to any collection.
