What a very cool car

Discussion in '1937 Cord 812 S/C Sportsman' started by smellygarfield, Aug 9, 2002.

  1. This car is really quite stunning.. even though slightly like other 30's cars, this is still really lovely... it is the typ of car you'd expect capone to have.... it has quite a good amount of bhp for that time, and it is one of the little cars that can pull it off, that looks good in white!!
    I'f i'd have the money back then, i'd own one!

    How could you be a bugatti lover and like this $#!+? Does 41 royale ring any bells?
    The cord looks alright, but it ain't ahead of its time.

    I saw one of these on the Speed Channel when the Barrett-Jackson auction show from Scottsdale, AZ was on last week and I don't recall the going price but this machine is incredibly beautiful, and awesome for it's time....I bout had a spasm when I saw this machine on TV, it is very striking and innovative for its time...a true classic

    Last version even had 190hp, too bad the quality (transmission, cooling, wheels (yes even them)) sucked for its time as well. Innovative masterpiece though.
