1930 Cord L-29 Convertible Sedan / 2928013 Chassis Information

1930 Cord L-29
Convertible Sedan
Chassis #: 2928013
Engine # FDA3160
Sold for $324,500 at 2012 Gooding and Company - Pebble Beach Auction.
This Cord L-29 Convertible Sedan belongs to Christopher Cord, the grandson of E.L. Cord. The car was completed in April of 1930 and was one of 1,163 convertible sedans built.

The car was owned by Fred Weber of St. Louis, Missouri and then by co-owners Esther Price Candies, Ralph Schmidt and Jim Day. In the mid-1990s, it was given a restoration. Mr. Cord acquired the car in 2009 and had it ACD Certified as #CL-043 in 2010. In 2011, the car underwent a mechanical restoration.

The car is finished in two-tone combination of red with claret highlights on the running boards and fenders. The beige pinstripe accent that sweeps around the fenders, hood and doors is coordinated with the beige canvas top and rich leather interior. It rides on whitewall tires on chrome wire wheels and there is an original luggage trunk attached to the rear.

This Cord has won 1st place in the Primary Class at the ACD Annual Reunion in 2010, the prize for Most Exciting Open Car in Show at the 2010 Palos Verdes Concours d'Elegance, and First in Class as well as Most Outstanding Cord in the Niello Concours at Serrano in 2011.

It is believed that this car is one of only 25 that are still in existence.

In 2012, the car was offered for sale at the Pebble Beach auction presented by Gooding & Company. The car was estimated to sell for $200,000 - $250,000 and offered without reserve. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $324,500 inclusive of buyer's premium.
