Description
810 and 812 Cords were only produced in 1936 and 1937. They featured advanced front wheel drive, 4-speed transmission and retractable headlights. This restored 1937 Cord 812 Phaeton is finished in beautiful black exterior and burgundy interior. Only 2,900 Cords were produced in the 2 years of production with just 404 Phaeton 812's of this type. The engine is a Lycoming V8 rated at 125hp coupled to a 4-speed transmission operated by a vacuum/electric shift system. This Cord has been updated using Oldsmobile Toronado type CV drive systems developed by Richardson for durability. The convertible top is tan cloth with a correct glass prism rear window. Even the correct AM radio works. This Cord was a first place winner at a recent CCCA national meet. It runs and drives smoothly.
