But just three years later a new cord car was unveiled. Like its predecessor, the new cord had front-wheel drive, but the resemblance stopped there.

About vehicle
Style revolution designer gordon miller buehrig had eliminated the radiator shell (replaced by bands of louvres around the coffin-nosed hood) and the running boards, and reduced exterior brightwork to a minimum. The headlights cranked down into the teardrop fenders, and the four-speed transmission was shifted electropneumatically by a miniature lever working in a tiny gate. supercharged cord the front-wheel-drive cord attracted many sales after its introduction, but it was slow to go into production. Many customers lost interest. There were annoying teething problems, and even the limited transformation of some original cord 810s into 1937s supercharged 812 failed to halt the slide. Production ended in 1937 after only 3,000 of the cars had been built.
