Cord was a car maker out of Connersville, Indiana (USA) in the 1930s, with the 810 being its best-known product, the work of Gordon M. Buehrig and known (affectionally) as the ‘Coffin Nose’.
This one somehow made it to Sweden, with the seller now putting the car up for auction and willing to assist in shipping around the world.
According to that seller, this ‘prize winning’ 1936 model has undergone a ‘complete body and mechanical restoration’, which took seven years to complete. It has been refinished in ‘correct cigarette cream yellow’, the engine has been ‘blueprinted and balanced’ by one of Sweden’s most experienced engine shops and as you can imagine, the car ‘runs great’.
There is a reserve on this, but bidding right now on this stunning motor is at £1,000.
