I was surprised to note that Andy Granatelli had a part in the Phantom Corsair as posted in this blog.
If I saw the correct movie, the Corsair is blasting down a dirt trail at a very rapid pace in a cloud of dust.
Seems like Cords were modified since they were new, all that sheet metal work and they left out the horn ring.

Does anyone know how Gorden Buehrig ( http://www.mason-city.com/gordon_buehrig.htm ) felt about this version of his vision?

That article is interesting to me (in comparison to the numerous ones over the years) regarding the registration numbers (2320 by his numbers) used for a production total. Most articles state the approximate 3000 810/812s. By the registration data and 60% survival rate, this results in 1392 810/812s!

I was startled at the figures also. It may have been the U.S. titled cars that he came about that total, many were exported. Just a guess.

quote from post-

"It's estimated that 60 percent of of 2,320 Cord 810/812 models exist. Sources say nearly 3,000 of the cars were built, but reported registrations were only 1,174 in 1936 and 1,146 in 1937, for a total of 2,320 cars."

Josh Malks replied the topic:
Registration numbers are not production numbers. They are just the number of cars actually registered in the 48 states in 1936 and 1937. Not counted are cars exported to other countries, and cars left in dealer's hands that were not registered until 1938. I'll stick to my story: no fewer than 2900, no more than 3000.

And I'm always suspicious of the famous "it is" --- "it is" estimated, "it is" believed, etc. I wonder who "it is" is.
