1937 Cord 812 Supercharged Phaeton Serial # 32401H Engine # FC2884 Body # C91 681 Located near PORTLAND, OREGON. This Cord was purchased by a long-time collector in the Pacific Northwest from the previous owner in Michigan in 1983. Over the next 20+ years it was the subject of a full frame-off restoration to concours show level. This was literally a no-expense-spared project with all components being restored, rebuilt or replaced. A carton of receipts, photos and documents related to the process testify to the thoroughness of the restoration and enormous amount of money spent to return it to showroom condition. Once completed, the Cord was shown at the Silver Falls, Washington Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg Gathering. Other than a few other showings it remained in the owner's climate-controlled garage with his large automobile collection. Today, the odometer shows just 40 miles since restoration. The car appears fresh in all respects. The body, paint and chrome are beautiful. The interior is stunning and looks as if it rolled out of the Cord factory yesterday. The thousand-and-one details that make an exceptional Cord have all been attended-to and the car is a standout on the road and the show field. Mechanically it is excellent. The rebuilt Lycoming V8 engine starts easily, runs smoothly and thanks to the supercharger, generates 170 HP making it fully capable of freeway speeds. The front-wheel-drive and vacuum-electric shifting system operate perfectly. It shifts easily through all 4 speeds and reverse. It is truly a pleasure to drive. Please see video and photos which were just taken and show the current condition of this Cord. Since this Cord has remained behind closed doors for much of the past 33 years, with only limited showings, it has yet to be A-C-D certified, although this should be a straight-forward process for the new owner, if they so desire, thanks to the extensive documentation that is included. It would be welcome at all A-C-D shows and tours as well as Classic Car Club of America events. If you are looking for an exceptional 812 Supercharged Phaeton for show or go, this is a fine one. It is only due to the passing of the owner that it is being offered for sale by his estate. A realistic reserve has been placed on this car, based on condition and rarity. Please bid accordingly. WE WILL HAPPILY SELL TO BIDDERS, WORLDWIDE. Thanks for looking and GOOD LUCK! If the video link below is inactive, please go to: https://youtu.be/kj2EXXGXgyc
