MEDIUM: ARCHITECT'S WATER COLORS ON ARTBOARD
The 1936 Cord 810 was originally planned as the "Baby Duesenberg." A mid-sized automobile, priced to sell to the average American.
Originally designed by Gordon Buehrig when he was at General Motors, the revolutionary concept was rejected by Chief Designer Harley Earl. When Buehrig was hired back by Auburn-Cord , he brought the design with him. To this day the Cord remains a timeless classic, an inspired design that looks as modern today as it did in 1936.
This single view Illustrated Portrait accents the art deco vents on the "coffin nose" hood, one of the unique features of this fabulous marque.
