Hi everyone

I have just taken delivery today from the US of a Cord 812SC Cabriolet RHD #32487F Engine FC3235.

How do I find out any known history of this car?

I know it was originally shipped to the UK, as it has the UK distributor (RSM Motors) plate in the engine compartment. I believe it was certified by the Club a few years ago.

I would be very interested to hear from any Cord owners in the UK as I will need help with servicing and future restoration.

Dear Jan,

I rode in this Cord several times when owned by Doug Saunders in
Norfolk, MA USA. Doug was a supporter of our company and was an
excellent machinist. He maintained this Cord Cabriolet very well during his ownership. He also had a Cord sedan.

Congatulations, Jan. Fine car. Doug and I were friends many years ago when I lived in Massachusetts, as did he.

Minor quibble, for the record. Cord models were 810 and 812. There was no "SC" appellation. This was grafted on by magazine reporters in later years.

Good luck, and keep us all posted on your adventures, both in the Newsletter and on this site.

Forgot to answer your question. For the car's history, contact ACD Club Cord Historian Ron Irwin. His address and phone are on on the inside front cover of the Newsletter. Alas, no e-mail.

Hi Jan,
I have been an ACD CLUB member for 10 years and my car also came from RSM.
Over the years I have carried out many repairs/mods to my phaeton,and have got the full history of my car from new until now except for the years 1955-58.
I have been in touch with the majority of UK Cord owners over the years and should you need any help dont hesitate to get in touch.

Barrie Sly.
