Cord L-29 cabriolet 1930
2017 Coppa Classic - Westerlo (B)

One of the first front wheel drive models on the American market. It was designed to fill the gap between the middle class Auburn and the top end Duesenberg models, which were both owned by E.L Cord. Under its long nose sits a straight 8-cylinder engine made by Lycoming. But most impressive are the elegant low lines, made possible because there was no room needed for a drive shaft to the rear wheels.
