The 810-812 Cord is a consensus for anyones list of the most beautiful production cars of all time! This groundbreaking design set the world on fire when it was introduced at the 1935 NY Auto Salon. People actually stood on top of other cars to get a glimpse of the Cord, which was akin to a spaceship having landed in the middle of the show floor. Sales requests were overwhelming for the relatively small Auburn Auto company and the cars were rushed to production. Many little irrating things were solved in the '37 Production year so '37 is generally considered the year to buy if you have a choice. The supercharged models with their outside exhaust pipes are the rarest and most desirable models. These cars are arguably the fastest and most drivable PreWar car there is. They handle and ride like no other Pre War car. They look like no other PreWar car. They are quite simply like no other PreWar car and quite frankly better than many cars produced long after the War ended.

This Exceptional example is fully restored to show standards. It runs and drives wonderfully and is ready to go touring, and would be most welcome at the most demanding show. Finished in the the always Striking Black with Saddle Leather and Tan Top, the car is correct in every manner and worthy of acquisition by the most descriminating collector. Phaetons are the most drivable and usable when it comes to Open Cords, you can take along a few passengers in style and get there in a hurry!

No collection is complete without an 810/812 Cord. Now is the time to buy one as they are rising in value very rapidly. The 812 Cord is one of the most beautiful production cars of all time, and they are quite simply the best driving pre War car there is. If you are looking for a Full Classic you can actually drive in modern traffic, the Cord is hard to beat!
