1937 Cord Ads

The car caused a sensation at its debut at the New York Auto Show in November 1935. The first production cars were not ready to deliver until February, 1936 and did not reach showrooms until April of that year.

For 1937 the car was unchanged  except that supercharging was made available with those cars distinguished from the normally aspirated models by chrome-plated external exhaust pipes mounted on each side of the hood. With supercharging, the 812's horsepower was raised to 170. 1,066 units of the 810/812 were sold in 1937.
