Cord built just over 2,800 810/812s in 1936 and 1937. The survival rate for them is phenomenal. Even the 4-door sedans, like this Westchester, survive at rates that dwarf those of other comparably priced marques of the period. Why? It was because of Gordon Buehrig's immortal design. Most car people can remember with clarity the first Cord 810/812 they ever saw and those who weren't exposed to them at an early age are still captivated by the rounded fenders, hidden headlights, aerodynamic rear roofline and -- most of all -- the brilliantly simple "coffin nose" tucked back behind the front valence that covers the front wheel drive gearbox. Finished in Dove Grey with Dark Blue velour upholstery piped in Cream, this 1937 Cord 812 Westchester sedan eloquently expresses the allure of the model. It also is an extremely good running, driving and shifting car that has been well maintained and toured. It has been consistently maintained, refreshed and preserved by owners who know what they were doing so that it has never had, nor needed, a restoration. The body, paint, chrome and upholstery are honest and presentable. So is the engine compartment and undercarriage. This is a wonderful Cord 812 for someone who wants a quality example that is ready to be driven with pride and confidence.
