(AUBURN) – The Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum is continuing the monthly program, “If These Cars Could Talk.” Visitors will have the opportunity to learn in-depth about the 1937 Cord with a live car-side presentation. The special car-side presentation will take place on Saturday, December 1 at 2:00 pm (free with regular admission).
This 1937 ivory-colored Cord is a well restored, numbers-matching example of the convertible coupe body style. The company offered six different body styles for the Cord in 1937; all included the option of a supercharger. Only sixty-four Cord 812 convertible coupes were produced with a supercharger.
The Cord’s Lycoming V-8 supercharged engine produces 175 horsepower. As new, this particular Cord cost $3,010. It was donated to the museum in loving memory of Raymond A. Majewski.
