E.L. Cord was the founder of the Cord automobile. The L-29 would be his first car to be manufactured in 1929. Soon after, the stock market would crash and plans for the new project, known as the 'Baby Duesenberg' would be put on hold until 1936.

The body design of the 810 was the work of designer Gordon M. Buehrig and his team of stylists. This car was the basis for an all new medium priced front wheel drive platform that would go on to be among the most sought after collector cars of the era.

The artistic styling included a coffin-nose, pontoon fenders (sans running boards), retractable headlights, rear hinged doors and an art-deco dashboard. There were four different designs - 2 coupes and 2 convertibles. The coupes were called Westchester's and Beverely's while the convertibles were four-seater Phaetons and the rare two-seater Cabriolets such as this example.

The price when new was $3,100 and only 205 Cabriolets were built in their two year period of production. This car is powered by a Lycoming L-Head V8 with a 288 cubic-inch 125 horsepower engine and an electric vacuum operated pre-select 4-speed shifter.

The 810 caused quite a stir at the 1936 New York Auto Show, and the design of the 810 remains one of the most distinctive of the 20th century. In 1996, American Heritage Magazine called the 810 'The Single Most Beautiful American Car.'

Purchased new in Hawaii by a Naval Admiral, it was later sold to Dale Palmer in California. In 1954, Palmer moved to Minnesota, taking the car with him. He would own this car well into the 1990's, although it was offered for sale in 1990 to a good friend of the current owner. The car would change hands and undergo a basic restoration. Later, in 2007 it would undergo a meticulous nut-and-bolt restoration returning it to its original as-delivered glory.

This 810 Cabriolet is a multiple national award winner and is exceptionally road worthy.
