1937 Cord 812

Auburn, IN
To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys Auburn Fall event, 30 August - 2 September 2018.
Estimate:
$35,000 - $40,000

  • Single-family ownership since 1971; unseen in 47 years
  • Rare factory-supercharged, long-wheelbase Custom model with its original engine
  • 190-hp, 288.6-cu. in. supercharged V-8 engine and four-speed pre-selector manual transmission
  • Eligible for all Auburn Cord Duesenberg (ACD) Club events and activities
  • Classic Car Club of America (CCCA) Full Classic


New additions to the Cord line for the 1937 812 models included an optional supercharged engine, producing 190 hp, and the new Custom sedan models, on a wheelbase extended by seven inches in the rear compartment, with the rest of the body s lines subtly raised to maintain Gordon Buehrig s superb proportions. First known with John Elson of Ohio in 1970, the factory-supercharged Custom Beverly offered here was acquired by the current owner s father from Mr. Elson only a year later, and has been hidden away in their family collection ever since. Overall well preserved with older paint and upholstery, it will would require mechanical sorting before being used on the road. It would be a wonderful basis for a future driver for ACD Club activities, or as the best possible basis for a concours-quality restoration.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/AF18.
