The Cord is a front wheel drive vehicle and has pre-select shifting with Vacuum/solenoid assisted Transmission. Another feature was the disappearing headlights.

This car was originally Supercharged, but is not now. Could be purchased with the exposed exhaust pipes even when not supercharged. This body style was only produced in 1936 and 1937.

Certified with ACD. Car has achieved the highest awards in AACA, CCCA and ACD clubs.

The 1937 Cords, penned by the legendary Gordon Buehrig, were designated model #812. They were little changed from the 1936 models. Approximately 2,900 Cords were produced between 1936 and 1937.

Although this Cord is not supercharged, the optional chromed outside exhaust pipes available on any of the 812 body styles, gives the car unmistakable external identification.

One of the most attractive and desirable variants of the 812 was the phaeton, a unique four-passenger convertible that featured a top that, when down, was totally concealed.

The Cord 812 remains one of the most significant vehicles in the history of automobile design. Its combination of charisma, fresh styling and innovative engineering make it one of the most desirable and drivable cars of the classic era.

Having achieved highest honors in the ACD Club, CCCA, and AACA, this Cord also carried Gordon Buehrig's granddaughter in the annual parade at the ACD Festival in 1997.

The 1936 Cord 810 was Gordon Buehrig's 'baby Duesenberg', and known as Model 810 'Coffin Nose.' It was America's 1st front wheel drive production car.

At the end of the 1936 sales year, Cord had about 300 unsold bodies of varying styles. The VIN ID tag on these 300 bodies listed these cars as a Model 810 (1936).

With little difference from the 1936 to the 1937 body, the factory changed the 'Model 810' tag for a 'Model 812' tag, and sold them as 1937 models.

Josh Malk, historian of the ACD Co. lists #1526 as the first new VIN for 1937. This Cord, #1469, is one of these rare 300 bodied from 1936 rebadged as a 1937.

The addition of a centrifugal supercharger brought the Lycoming V8 engine to 190 horsepower.
