1937 Cord 812 S/C Custom Beverly
Chassis Number: 32222S – Engine Number: FC2994
Only 1 of 90 Supercharged custom Beverly’s built. The car was very ahead of its time, including the first to have concealed headlights and it also has front wheel drive with a four speed electric pre-selector gearbox. This supercharged Lycoming V-8 develops 190 horsepower and yielded 0-60 mph in 13 seconds and nearly 110 mph maximum. This very nice example is equipped with its original 288.6 engine with supercharger which produced 190 horsepower and 4-speed transmission. Finished in black with burgundy cloth interior, well-appointed with full complement of gauges including original radio, clock and altimeter, and rides on wide whitewall tires. Restoration appears to have been done in the late 1980’s to early 1990’s. Body work and paint are in very good condition, but does show some signs of spider-webbing and swirls from dry dusting. Chrome and bright work are also done well.
