1929 Cord L-29 Sedan Vehicle Profile

1929 Cord L-29
Sedan
From 1929 to 1931, Cord produced a total of 5,014 L-29 models, the first mass produced front-wheel drive American automobile. This sedan rides on a wheelbase that measures 137.5 inches and is powered by a 125 horsepower Lycoming eight-cylinder engine.

This example is an original example that was built in October of 1929, which was the first full month of production. It is perhaps the earliest surviving unrestored example of an L-29. During the production run, many recalls, changes and updates were made on the L-29 such as changing the size of the wheel spokes and moving the batter to the side of the vehicle from under the hood. None of those changes were performed on this vehicle, which makes it a great example of initial production run of Cords.
