Favourite Cars – Cord 810/812

A few years ago we visited the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Museum in Auburn Indiana.

The museum is situated on the site of the old factory, design centre and superb Art Deco showroom.

Very prominent at the ACD were a number of my favourite Cord 810/812 cars and various other artifacts.

The Cord 810, and later Cord 812, was an luxury automobile produced by the Cord Automobile division of the Auburn Automobile Company in 1936 and 1937. It was the first American-designed and built front wheel drivecar with independent front suspension. It followed the 1934 Citroën Traction Avant and the Cord L-29, both of which also had front wheel drive. Both models were also the first to offer hidden headlights.
