Hi All

Does anyone have any info or photographs of Cord Motor Cars in Africa. I am researching the cars that were owned there and have to date around 6 cars listed. There were apparently two Cords in Rhodesia, and then there was an Auburn that was fitted with a Cord front end. The Auburn was restored in the 80s and I believe the front end went to America - Anyone know more on this?

Thank you in advance

Sorry, but I don't have anything on these cars. Check with the ACD Museum archives on export department. They have some information. Jon Bill is head of that research department.

Hi . I was browsing through the various topics on the site and saw an enquiry about Cords in Africa. If you are still interested, there are a few cords in Africa. I know of the one in Zimbabwe. There are 4 in Johannesburg. Sed Pierce owns an original limo 1937 Beverley and a Sportster, Mike Otto owns a 1937 Beverly and I have started restoration of a 810 Westchester. There is also one in Knysna (not sure what model) and possibly another unrestored one in Pretoria.

At least seven Cords wre exported to South Africa.

For questions like this, the "fountainhead" is our ACD Club Cord Historian, Ron Irwin. You'll find his contact information on the inside front cover of the Newsletter. (No e-mail.)
