The Cord was built by the Auburn Motorcar Co. and most were supercharged V8 Lycoming air cooled engines. The large pipes on the sides of the hood were real exhaust pipes to help get heat out from under the hood. The cord was a front wheel drive car, which was very rare in the U.S. They were expensive cars that had reliability problems.

this might be a little strange to some but most cords were powered by corvair motors before corvair was built
