 Vehicle Description
. quot;whether or not old Cord owners want to admit the truth, if an original Cord and this recreation were placed side by side on a 1937 showroom floor, chances are excellent that 99% of the buyers would choose this recreation quot;Looks like a Pebble Beach show car but drives like a new Mercedes. This car was custom built for a car collector and longtime Auburn Cord Duesenberg Club member who has owned several Cords including a concourse winning 1937 Cabriolet. He built this car because he wanted a worry free driver.It took over 2 years and nearly a quarter million dollars to complete. During his years as a Cord enthusiast, the builder had acquired a large collection of authentic, original Cord parts; which he used on this car to ensure a near exact replica.This car features original Cord instruments, Electro-vac shifter, steering column and wheel, door handles, window cranks, chrome, hardware and other accessories. The chrome top irons were fabricated using original Cord top irons as a template. It rsquo;s a fully functional, same as original top that rsquo;s wrapped in a rich canvas. The headlights crank open and close same as the originals do.A lot of efforts went into concealing the cars modern amenities. There are micro switches in the window cranks to operate the power windows. An automatic shifter is hidden under the dash and a faux clutch pedal was even installed to further convince any aficionado. The interior is finished in doeskin leather upholstery. While the dash looks lsquo;1937 rsquo; it too has some hidden surprises like ice cold air-conditioning and heat. There are also switches to electronically open the hood and trunk.Under the car is a custom chassis with independent coil-over front suspension, with power disc brakes and power steering. It is powered by a reliable and easy to maintain Chevrolet 350 engine and turbo 350 transmissions. The body is a Don Loux fiberglass body that had been straightened and fitted to the same finish as a steel body. The paint is high gloss with a mirror-like reflection. The cars trim, lights and accessories are original Cord items with the highest standard of chrome plating. This is truly a one of a kind car that cannot be compared to any other replica in existence. The dimensions and authenticity are far superior than the factory built Glenn Prey models and while Don Loux advertised a turnkey car being available for $70k, he was unable to produce a single one. Only about 12 bodies were produced and one turnkey project was started but never completed; the unfinished car had already exceeded the $70k budget. The bodies, molds and unfinished project have since been sold off.Titled as a 1937 Cord, there has been only about 75 miles put on this car since it was completed. Even the owner felt he had overshot his mark of building a driver when creating this functional piece of rolling art.
