Lot #696 - 812 Cords were only produced in 1936 and 1937. They featured advanced front-wheel drive, 4-speed transmission and retractable headlights. This restored 1937 Cord 812 Phaeton is finished in beautiful black exterior and burgundy interior. Just 404 Phaeton 812s of this type produced. The engine is a Lycoming V8 rated at 125hp and coupled to a 4-speed transmission, which is operated by a vacuum/electric shift system. This Cord has been updated using Oldsmobile Toronado-type CV drive systems developed by Richardson for durability. The convertible top is tan cloth with a correct glass prism rear window. Even the correct AM radio is included. This Cord was a first-place winner at a CCCA national meet. From the Tammy Allen Collection.
