Phaeton
The Cord L-29 was the first production car in the United States to feature front wheel drive. The brainchild of automotive builder E.L. Cord, the L-29s front wheel drive allowed for lowered overall body height and spectacularly rakish styling. This Convertible Sedan is powered by a Lycoming straight-eight engine. Lycoming was among the holdings of the Cord Empire.

This car was originally purchased in 1930 by a prominent Baltimore banker. The current owner acquired the car in 2005, 47 years after he initially offered to purchase it from a friend. The car had been completely disassembled by the previous owner, existing in marked, but deteriorating, plastic bags. A full 8-month restoration was initiated and completed in 2007.
