Here's what I was doing a thorough inspection of the other day.
Lots of things on my page are rare this goes under the extremely rare category.
A very rare 1937 cord 812 Beverly Sedan. These cars are earned the nickname of Coffin Nose.
The beauty may be hard to see for some people here I will make posts on what they look like in a bit. This was the first American production car that was front wheel drive and independent front suspension. This car is near all original condition with one repaint in the 50s. Untouched running gear and matching numbers. Originally Palm Beach Tan with deep maroon interior. This car has a couple very rare options one is a wing window on the passenger side it is not just a normal Wing window of a car. There is a full window that goes up and down and then there is an exterior Wing window that pops out. Also has optioned armrests. Also a very rare winged hood emblem that is sadly missing. This car was said to be a barn find it is now in a storage building for classic cars. But came from the barn where it has been since 1978.
If you look closely you can see a manual column on the tree style shifting. That is not how it's supposed to be there should be an electric/ vacuum system were you move a tiny little shifter with your fingers and push in the clutch and then select the gear and then you let out the clutch to actually shipped the car with the next gear pre-selected. Someone tried making that work at looks like but didn't mess with the other systems.
This is actually for my dad one of his all out dream car since a kid. And if you were born closer to that area I'm sure you have the same feeling about the car. Not many of these were made between 1936 and 1937 the only two years made there's said to be around 3000 made which I believe the number is actually 2830.
1764 made in 1936 &
1066 made in 1937
Made a down payment on the car and she will come home soon.
