1929 Cord L-29 Vehicle Profile

Cabriolet
Designer: Harry Miller
This 1929 Cord was owned by the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation. Wright purchased a Cord L29 Phaeton in 1929. He had the car painted in rusty orange color, known as 'Taliesin Orange.' 'The Cord has taken several foreign prizes for body design and it was nearest thing to well-designed car I had ever seen outside of Europe,' said Wright in his autobiography. 'The Cord seemed to have the right principle-front-wheel drive pulling instead of pushing along. It certainly looked becoming to my houses- the best design from my streamline standpoint ever put on the market. The Cord was an innovator along right lines that changed the whole field of body design for the better.'
