CORD mod. L – 29

(United States 1931)

The Cord marque was founded by Errett Lobban Cord. Its six-window L-29 saloon was produced from 1929 to 1933. Much of the fascination and interest it aroused stemmed from the proportions of its bodywork: the bonnet accounted for nearly half the lenght of the entire vehicle, while even the 4-door saloon was lower than the average and had something of a sports car appearance. Following the launch of his 810 and 812, however, Cord decided to retire in 1936 and the company closed down year later. The cars produced by this ingenious, many-sided entrepreneur have earned a permanent place in motor car history.
