There are few American original cars left but we have one here at MotoeXotica Classic Cars. We are quite proud to present this 1937 Cord 810 Winchester sedan.

Dressed in Cadet Grey, this cars paint and trim are in overall excellent condition, after a restoration to high standards, however there are minor blemishes visible at the drivers side Apillar and at the fuel filler door. The windows are in very good order and the lights are as well. This Cord rides on 16inch steel wheels with vented factory wheel covers surrounded by Goodyear wide whitewall tires. The tires and wheels are in very good order.

This cars bodywork is straight and solid, including its coach front doors, its trunk is in good order with a fullsized spare tire, the engine bay is tidy, the battery looks new and the chrome bumpers show good fits with the body. However, the car has no windshield wiper arms; there are wiper blades in the glovebox. The horns are inoperable.

Its Lycoming 289 CID Lhead V8 engine was matched with a fourspeed semiautomatic transmission with Bendixs electrically operated preselector gearshift system.

Inside, the cars dark blue interior with grey piping and trim is in overall very good order. The front and rear bench seats look great, as does the matching carpet and headliner. The black and metallic dashboard, with its multiple round gauges, including tachometer, levers and other controls, still looks snazzy, however the fuel gauge is inoperable. The original, glossy, threespoke steering wheel faces the driver. The drivers side inner door panel shows some blemishes, but overall, the panels, mirror glass and shift lever look good. There is no radio in this vehicle.

Contemplated as a Baby Duesenberg yet made for only 1936 and 1937, E. L. Cords 810/812 series has been a collector favorite for many years. The 810/812 series succeeded the L29 Cord, continuing Cords penchant for blending stunning styling with engineering wonders, all at affordable prices. Indeed, Cord chief stylist Gordon M. Buehrig penned the design, using cues from styles rejected by Harley Earl, his former GM styling boss, such as its coffin nose, retractable headlights and pontoonstyle front fenders. Other new ideas included hidden door hinges, frontwheel drive, a hidden fuel filler door, variablespeed windshield wipers and a rearhinged hood as opposed to the thenregular sideopening type.

Frontwheel drive meant the car had no driveshaft beneath the passenger compartment so there was no transmission tunnel to steal foot room and rob passenger space in the cabin. The cars body was lower than many of its contemporaries and made running boards a thing of the past.

Competition to this Cord in 1937 included Auburns Speedster, Buicks Century, Cadillacs Series 60, Chryslers Airstream, Duesenbergs Model J, LaSalles Series 50, the LincolnZephyr, Packards OneTwenty and Oldsmobiles Series L models.

This car is currently located at our facility in St. Louis, Missouri. Current mileage on the odometer shows 11,081 miles. It is sold as is, where is, on a clean and clear, mileage exempt title. GET OUT AND DRIVE
