1936 - 1937 Cord Trivia: The 1936-1937 Cord 810/812 had every hallmark of success: advanced engineering, innovative styling, exciting performance. Yet all were squandered in an ill-fated rush to production. Long hailed as one of the most influential cars of the 1930s -- perhaps of all time -- it nevertheless stands as a classic example of how greatness so often goes awry.To understand the 810/812, you have to go back to its forebear, the Cord L-29. The marquee, of course, refers to Errett Lobban Cord, the whirlwind Los Angeles used-car salesman who rose to become president and chief stockholder of Auburn Automobile Company in just six short years.Cord moved swiftly to revive the flagging firm, envisioning it as the foundation for a diverse industrial empire to rival Ford or General Motors.In characteristic style, he pursued this dream with a vengeance, acquiring Duisenberg in 1926, followed by a host of other enterprises, including engine maker Lycoming.
Cord wanted a car to fill the price gap between his rejuvenated Auburn Eights and the awe-inspiring, custom-built Duesenberg Model J. And he was just egotistical enough to want his own name on it. Naturally, it would have to stand apart from his other cars, so mechanical innovation and sensational styling were assumed from the start.With losses mounting, Auburn slashed overhead to the bone, transferring all engineering, manufacturing, sales, and administrative functions to Connersville from its Auburn, Indiana home base. Yet even as the company battened down, its engineers were putting the final touches on a new wrinkle for the 1937 Cord 812 line, scheduled to bow in September.Auburn now simply resorted to the image-booster it had been using on its own cars for the past few years, albeit with mixed results. There thus arrived a new performance option intended to attract well-heeled sporty types. It was, of course, a centrifugal supercharger, blowing through a reworked intake manifold and exhaling through flashy, flexible, chrome-plated exhaust pipes emanating from both sides of the hood through chrome-mesh screens.
Built by Schwitzer-Cummins, the blower ran at 24,000 rpm to raise maximum output by a full 45 horsepower to 170, a smashing 36 percent gain. Autocar magazine in England timed a supercharged 812 sedan at just 13.2 seconds in the 0-60 mph test, a full seven seconds faster than its normally aspirated counterpart.
Besides the supercharger package, a $415 extra for all models, 1937 brought a brace of luxury sedans on a stretched, 132-inch wheelbase, a gesture toward the declining carriage trade. The four-passenger Custom Beverly boasted armchair-style seats, while the imousine-like Custom Berline came with a roll-down division window. Both were distinguished by bustle-back trunk styling, a higher roofline for extra headroom inside, and special interiors. Source: http://auto.howstuffworks.com/1936-1937-cord-810-812.html
