There were approximately three thousand 1936 and 1937 Cords produced, but only three of them were hardtop coupes and only one of them was built like this vehicle. Robert A. Stranahan, Sr., President and founder of Champion Sparkplugs, commissioned this one of a kind Cord to be built for himself. There are many unique features to this car including chromed Auburn headlights, a padded leather top, an Auburn hood ornament, and LaSalle ventports on the sides of the hood. After having been used in Ohio and abused in California, the Cord was discovered in Montreal, Canada in very decrepit condition by Auburn Cord Duesenberg enthusiast Dr. Fay Culbreth. After a multi-year restoration, this one of a kind Cord was donated to the Museum. Technical: The 1937 Cord 812 Coupe is powered by a 289 cubic inch displacement Lycoming V-8 engine. With the optional supercharger, the Cord motor was advertised to produce 170 horsepower. The wheelbase measures 125 inches. This special car cost approximately $3,500. New
