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. Then in 1937, with the introduction of the 812, Cord made the great even better by offering a supercharged version of its Lycoming-built V8 engine with 170 horsepower, 45 more than the un-blown engine. 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 and even fewer of them were supercharged like this fastidiously restored 812. Carefully redone in every detail to show car condition, this 1937 Cord 812 Phaeton is gorgeous. Finished in Dark Blue metallic with Blue leather upholstery and a Dark Blue cloth top, it is one of the most desirable cars of the classic era and is recognized by the Classic Car Club of America as a "Full Classic" making it eligible for all of that club's enjoyable and prestigious events. It is equipped with both a radio and a remote spotlight. The paint, interior, bright work, panel fit, engine compartment and chassis detailing are all exceptional. This is a superb supercharged Cord 812 Phaeton that has been restored and maintained to the highest standards.
