If you are interested i open this post to tell the restoration story of my 812 here in France.
My english is not perfect but i hope you understand me.

In 1989 i look for the first time a Cord 812 in a museum in France and admire the design of this wonderful car.
After several other cars I decided in late 2013 to offer me a Cord.

The first Cord i look in 1989,a 812 custom westchester.
