Inspired by Gordon Buehrig, who also designed the Duesenberg at a tender age of 24, the Cord was born three years later, who together from a team of highly skilled designers broke all previous automotive industry standards. Their achievements are legendary; streamline design, very low center of gravity, disappearing enclosed headlamps, Lycoming V8 engine, capable of over 100 mph speeds, four speed transmission with finger-tip shifting, front wheel drive-the first in America! The features go on and on, disappearing convertible top, airplane inspired engine-turned dash, Cord’s technical design was very memorable, but its design and styling made it immortal.

The large 14 x 19-inch book is an exceptional work and is finished off with an attractive fitted slipcase. It contains over three-hundred pages and a countless number of period photos, patent drawings, advertisements, artwork and contemporary images. But don’t just take our word for it, check in with Cord Complete where you can learn more.
