The Innovative Cord 810's are among the most sought-after treasures in the American Classic Car Pantheon. This groundbreaking front wheel drive automobile was the brainchild of legendary auto stylist Gordon Buehrig, lauded for his exemplary Duesenberg and Auburn speedster body designs. The Cord was conceived as a smaller more streamlined Duesenberg that had minimal trim cladding on the outside of the car body. The Cord 810's unmistakable "Coffin Nose" was one of the more bold styling decisions made by Buehrig. Combined with a 4-speed electrically shifted transmission and the low-slung front wheel drive chassis, the 810 was years ahead of it's time in both design and engineering.
The Cord 810 Westchester sedan showcased here is a wonderfully maintained example of Cord's handsome 4-Door sedan, the premiere body style for the pioneering 810 series. A deep coat of Cord's single-moniker 'Black' paint presents in very good condition, trimmed with lustrous bright work in excellent condition throughout. The interior upholstery has been refurbished with a durable buff-toned leatherette, contrasted with black accents. The expansive Art Deco period dashboard is the backdrop for an impressive array of instrumentation, all of which appear in excellent condition. The cosmetic restoration of this 810 was completed slightly over a decade ago, and has logged only gentle fair weather mileage since.
The engine and drive-train have been thoroughly maintained over the years to ensure consistent running and driving quality. A glance under the Coffin Hood reveals a clean engine compartment with good detail. Engine and transmission perform respectably during our road tests. This is one of a handful of authentic Cord model 810's made available on the retail collector car market in recent years. Here is an opportunity to consider this Art Deco masterpiece away from the limitations of the typical auction venue. Youtube video available upon request.
