For sale is an excellent 1937 Cord 812 Custom Beverly sedan. Only 235 Custom series cars were manufactured.  They have a longer (132") wheel base than the standard (125" wheelbase) Cords. This was done to give more interior room.  This Cord is a very late production car. being 17th from the last car. so it incorporates all of the improvements made during the production run. The car was first restored in 1970 by the late Ed Harris who was well known in the ACD club. In a club newsletter. he describes it as being "a very solid car that I did a thorough restoration on. " The engine and transmission were totally rebuilt at that time. and the car has traveled the 14. 69 miles shown on the odometer since that restoration. Aftermarket cylinder heads by Eric Cain were installed at that time. These are very desirable. as the factory heads are well known to have porosity and cooling problems.  The car is shown on the cover of Jon Bills' book "Cord Automobiles. " The late Senator Howard Baker. Jr. of Tennessee purchased the car in 2008. and in 2010 he commissioned a second restoration of the car which included a complete new leather interior in the correct pattern. new glass. new wiring. paint. (original Cadet Grey. with blue interior colors) and re plating of all interior and exterior chrome. and refurbishment of most mechanical systems. A large photo album is included with the car with pictures and textual descriptions of all work completed. as well as receipts. The car runs and shifts perfectly. No smoke from the engine. Factory equipped with the optional vacuum tank that allows the dual speed vacuum  wipers to run at a constant speed regardless of throttle position.  It is a certified ACD Club original car.

This car is priced correctly for what it is. Yes. you can find $50- $60K Cord sedans out there. For that you will get one that needs everything. Buy this car and get a GOOD Cord that looks. drives and shifts correctly. You'll be glad you did.
