This is an excellent interview with Gordon Buehrig from back in 1989 carried out as part of the Automotive Oral History Project.

Cord 810

Some of the cars designed by  Gordon Buehrig were the Stutz Black Hawk, Auburn 851 Boattail Speedster, Duesenberg J, Duesenberg J, 1956 Lincoln Continental Mark II, and, perhaps the car he’s most known for, the Cord 810/812. He also invented the removable T-top, patented in 1951

I’ve actually visited the excellent ACD Museum in Auburn Indiana and there is a display of Buehrig artefacts.

My favourite classic cars of all time are the Cord 810/812’s

This was increased after we visited the Auburn Cord Duesenberg museum in Auburn Indiana a few years ago.

An excellent book was written by the late Josh B. Malks called Cord Complete It was his second book on the subject, his first: Cord 810/812 – The Timeless Classic has become a classic itself. Details of the book can be found here on the excellent “Old Motor” online magazine. The ACD museum site is on this link.

It’s a wonderful place with an amazing Art Deco Showroom and a lot of the original artefacts from the days of Gordon Buehrig and E.L.Cord
