RubyDS created the topic: Cord 812 Custom Beverly restoration story
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.


After other cars for sale i find in December 2013 in Oklahoma a 812 custom Beverly.
The first picture i reiceipt



The car is for sale complete but disasembled "rust free" with new floors and new rocker panels and i deceid to buy it.

In February 2014 the car is ready for shipping <!-- s8) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_cool.gif" alt="8)" title="Cool" /><!-- s8) -->



In the truck for California



The car arrived in California to start a long trip to France

when I bought the car it sold "rust free" with new floors and rockers panels, I had seen a few pictures of the work done in Oklahoma
