 (866) 723-9619 (866) 723-9619 1936 Cord 810 4 seat Phaeton 21228 Miles V8 Automatic Exterior Color: Green Interior Color: Green Transmission: Automatic Drivetrain: FWD Engine: V8 Mileage: 21,228 This is a fantastic example of the iconic Cord a ground breaking design it was America"s first front wheel drive car. This car was treated to a frame off restoration several years ago, The 289 cubic V8 delivers ample power to ensure freeway cruising speeds. She is a class act riding on brand new wide white walls.
Few prewar cars can cruise at 80 mph. Few prewar cars that sell for less than $200,000 are regularly permitted to park on concours d"elegance lawns. Few cars from any era have styling and proportions so timeless that it"s hard for onlookers to correctly guess their era. The 1936-1937 Cord is all those things.
Cord"s story is short but dense. Savvy young businessman Errett Lobban Cord effectively bought the struggling Auburn Automobile Company (AAC) in 1925. Earlier that year, Harry Miller"s Junior 8 Special amazed the automotive world by taking second place in the Indianapolis 500. It was the first front-wheel-drive car to compete in the famous race. In 1927 - having recently taken over Duesenberg, the other great American racing name of the day - Cord hired Miller to help develop America"s first front-wheel-drive production car. The result was the low-slung 1929-1932 L-29, the first vehicle from Mr. Cord"s namesake brand. Unfortunately, the Depression stifled sales of AAC"s flashy midlevel entrant.
Big, ostentatious Duesenbergs grated against the reality of the Depression even more, so a "baby Duesenberg" project was launched in late 1933. Its shape was based on drawings by Gordon Buehrig that had been soundly rejected months earlier by his then-boss, General Motors design king Harley Earl. AAC management sidelined that project to devote attention to the more mainstream Auburn brand (result: 1935"s fine 851 boattail speedster). When focus returned to the new small luxury model, Buehrig"s design team - including unsung sculptor Vince Gardner - and company engineers had to quickly ready the car, now a Cord, for its crucial November 1935 auto-show debuts. Contrary to typical practice, none of the Cord show cars could be test-driven, likely because the transmissions weren"t ready. Nonetheless, the new Cord overshadowed everything else on the show floors with its breathtaking lines, hidden headlamps and door hinges, lack of an upright radiator grille, low stance, and futuristic dashboard. One of the most famous reactions, its speaker lost to time: "It didn"t look like an automobile. Somehow it looked like a beautiful thing that had been born and just grew up on the highway."
