The Cord 810 is one of the American auto industry's immortal designs. Chosen to be exhibited at New York's Museum of Modern Art, Gordon Buehrig's hidden headlight "coffin-nose" Cord is one of the triumphs of clean, sharp, efficient modern machine age design. Produced in limited numbers with open bodies, Cord's hope was that the 4-door sedans, the Westchester and Beverly, would generate sufficient demand to keep the company going during the Depression. It didn't work out that way but today the Westchester and Beverly are avidly sought by collectors for their simple, imaginative, purity of design and advanced front wheel drive V-8 powered drivetrain. This 1936 Cord 810 Westchester four-door sedan has had a good cosmetic restoration and is the more desirable early fastback body style. Its engine carries the number on the car's ID plate and is as it is listed in the production records in Josh B. Malks definitive Cord 810/812 book. Finished in maroon with beige broadcloth upholstery piped in maroon to match the exterior, it runs and drives well and has good exterior paint and a nice interior. Equipment includes wide whitewall tires and a radio. It is a good, sound example of an important design that will be a delight to own and drive and will bring admiring looks from passersby.
