Ride of the Day: Cord 810 Convertible Phateon
The Cord 810 (and related Cord 812) was an automobile produced by the Cord Automobile division of Auburn Motors in 1936 and 1937. It was the first American-designed and built front wheel drive car with independent front suspension. It followed the 1934 Citroën Traction Avant and the Cord L-29, both of which also had front wheel drive. The 810/812 was also the first to offer hidden headlights.
