1935 Cord 810

With its wraparound grille, the Cord 810 became one of the most distinctive American designs. It was the work of Gordon M. Buehrig and created a lot of buzz surrounding its release at the 1936 New York Auto Show.

Distinguished by a wraparound front grille and enormous pontoon fenders the Cord had a style that was unique.

E.L. Cord made sure the Cord’s engineering was as eccentric as his style. The car used a very low chassis and a front-mounted transmission that sat ahead of the engine. This allowed for a very low ride height and increased cockpit space.

Eventually the model was renamed into the 812 and Supercharged versions were offered in 1937.
