Cabriolet
Designer: Harry Miller
This elegant Cord features a restoration that was done totally by its current owner. The owner purchased the car in 1995 and undertook the project in his restoration shop.

The Cord L-29 was America's first mass produced front wheel drive automobile. The stance was eleven inches lower than the average production car of its day. With a 137-inch wheelbase it makes for a very sleek looking vehicle. Cord's of this era could be painted in a custom color such as this white example, for an additional cost of $20.

The Cord L-29 was one of the first cars in the world that featured an interior that was styled to reflect the lines and grace of the exterior. Under the bonnet was a 298.6 cubic-inch Lycoming straight eight, which produced 125 horsepower. The wheelbase measures 137.5-inches, and the car weighs 4300 pounds. When new, the Front Drive Cord L-29 Cabriolet cost $3295.
