Very rare 1936 Cord 810 Cabriolet fully restored. This model was a favorite of Hollywood stars and sports figures of it's time including Amelia Earhart, Johnny Weissmuller,Tom Mix, Bing Crosby, Groucho Marx, Sonja Henje. and Al Jolsson.
It was amazingly advanced for it's time. It was America's first front wheel drive vehicle, came with retracting front headlights, and some 196 of them sported Super Charged engines.
The timeless styling and art deco design features make this one of my favorites.
Best part of this car, is it is owned by the grandson of the owner/founder of the Cord Motor Company whom we ran into at a car show this summer. We spent several hours with him telling us about his grandfather and the development of the car's design and manufacture - a rare treat.
PS, new to me camera - love it!
