The 1936 Cord was revolutionary in every way, nothing like it has been seen before or since. The styling is timeless, and just as beautiful today as it was in 1936.
Envisioned as a "Baby Duesenberg" by E.L. Cord , Gordon Buehrig's futuristic look for the car was actually rejected when the designer was at GM. Lured back to Auburn, he brought the concept with him. The streamlined body with long "coffin" nose, retracting headlights and no running boards was a stunner.
This 2 view Digital Portrait features a 3/4, front ,and 3/4 rear illustraing Buehrig's art deco design.
