If there is one American prewar car which has always intruigued me than it is certainly the Cord. That is why I did not say no when after a combined classic car deal I ended-up with this beautiful black Cord 812 Beverly saloon into my showroom. After reading recently an interview with several famous car designers, I noticed my appreciation of the Cord was mutual. Just looking at this model it is obvious the styling of this 812 saloon was very advanced for its time. From whatever angle, the lines are pure and smooth. Also the mechanical set-up is surprisingly modern. For a start: front wheel driven, independant front suspension, V8 supercharged, pre-select gearbox, hydraulic brakes, pop-up headlamps, ultra complete set of gauges on dashboard, etc... This supercharged Cord was for many years in the collection of one of my Brussels based customers, who bought this elegant saloon in the USA and had her completely restored by a specialist in the UK. To demonstrate the quality of the restoration work the restorer entered this Cord into the National Competition of the Classic Car Club of America and... won 1-st prize! This Cord is without any doubt an astonishing beauty. Her mirror-finish exterior black paint is perfectly complemented by her very attractive green cloth interior and 'juke-box style' dashboard. Also the whole underneath of the car is as clean as a 3 Michelin star restaurant kitchen. As could be expected from her exterior presentation, the road sensations of this Cord 812 are evenso impressive. Crazy power from the supercharged V8 and dead-easy gearchange thanks to the pre-select gearbox. No rattles whatsoever, an ultra smooth ride and endless acceleration available at any time. Difficult to remember that after all this Cord 812 is a prewar car... What a pleasure ! I am sure I will make someone, who is looking for a perfect prewar saloon, very happy with this immaculate and rare Cord 812. Any offers above 75.000 euro have a chance to take this beauty home.
