1937 Cord 812 Sportsman Convertible

Vehicle Details

Factory accessory front Cord emblem wings, correct vacuum wiper motors, correct beveled mirror, correct grip-style steering wheel, factory 150 mph speedometer, correct original keys and a factory accessory Philco radio. The radio is original with new tubes, vibrator and Cord emblem, and the art-deco speaker cloth is in good condition. This Cord is powered by a 289ci 8-cylinder engine mated to a 4-speed manual transmission. It is also equipped with a Startix starter, correct Stromber AA25 carburetor, Air-Maze air cleaner, original mechanical and hidden electric fuel pumps, and a Cord stainless exhaust system with factory accessory exhaust cut out. This car is fully restored and was invited to the 2018 Quail.

Due to improper preparation for shipping overseas, the original engine froze, and a newly restored engine was sourced. The engine was correctly installed and stamped with full notification to the ACD Club to match the damaged engine it replaced. The car is now show-ready, and runs and drives well. The ACD Club featured it on the cover of one of their newsletters as one of the most beautifully restored Cords in existence.
