1937 Cord 812 Supercharged Phaeton




Description:

The body design of the Cord 812 was the work of Gordon M. Buehrig and was the first American front-wheel drive car with independent front suspension and a tube rear axle with semi-elliptic rear springs. Later Cords were powered by a Supercharged 4,739 cc (289 cubic-inch) Lycoming V8 with 170 horsepower on tap. The pre-selector four-speed manual transmission (three plus overdrive) extended in front of the engine, allowing Buehrig to dispense with the driveshaft and transmission tunnel. As a result, the new car was so low it required no running boards and provided passengers with a smooth ride from its 125" wheelbase.

Offered less than 5 years following a comprehensive no-expense-spared restoration, this exquisite 1937 Cord 812 Supercharged Phaeton has had less than 1500 miles put on it since. The car has been carefully maintained and sparingly used apart from CCCA events, including a recent First in Class at the CCCA Stan Hywet Hall and Gardens annual meet.

Finished in a beautiful combination of Cigarette Cream over a dark green leather interior with an off-white cloth convertible top, this example is definitively apart from most both in terms of the quality of its restoration as well as the unique presentation.
