    The L29 (yes good guess, from '29) was the first Cord with front wheel drive. Exceptional for that time about this car was mainly the gearbox I think, that worked under pressure. ..in Case that it worked that is, because it dealed with a lot of tranmission problems, and cooling problems (Buehrig thought it's "cool" looking without the old-fasioned grill, and cool looking is cooling enough in his design-opinion I guess lol). What else.. oh the wheels were too openly built, so they broke as well. Really never let an exterior designer never touch the job of an engineer <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/emoticons.html"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://speed.supercars.net/cboardhtml/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>. The 812 is the last Cord made anyway. And yes it looks great, the quality of this vehicle just sucked.
