Cord History

1937 Cord 812

Share on:

E.L. Cord introduced an exciting and different automobile for the 1937 model year. The car was built in Indiana, retailed for $2,960 and used a 289 cubic-inch Lycoming L-head V8 engine. The big change from 1936 was an optional supercharger raising horsepower from 125 to 170. The top speed of the supercharged model was 112 mph. This speed was equaled only by the likes of Duesenberg and Pierce-Arrow. Numerous improvements were made to weaknesses seen in the 1936 car and the new model went on to set records that stood for 15 years. In June 1937 this car was driven at the Indianapolis Speedway by Ab Jenkins winning the Stevens Trophy and establishing a new Class C closed stock car speed record at a distance of 1,909.9 miles in 24 hours (averaging 79.6 mph). In September 1937, driving this same car, Jenkins set a speed record at the Bonneville Salt Flats by driving 2441.3 miles in 24 hours, averaging1.7 mph and completing the flying mile at 107.6 mph.
