This is a 1937 Cord Supercharged Custom Beverly sedan. With only about 140+-Supercharged Cord Custom Beverly sedans ever produced, it’s now believed less then 30 have survived making this Gordon Buehrig designed classic amongst the rarest of its kind . The Custom Beverly’s were very special and included a 132” wheelbase versus 125” for the regular sedans and open cars. Special features which made them really quite unique included an extra grille louver and taller rocker panels accented by longer quarters panels. These subtle changes proved to be exceptionally beautiful as well as proportional.
A CALIFORNIA/West Coast car since new, this Beverly is, with very minor exception, virtually rust-free with all original Supercharged factory sheet metal present and in excellent condition. Discovered after over 40+ years of protected inside storage with most of its factory black paint intact, it’s wonderful patina could be used as-is or refinished like new by the new owner. While it has not been run in that time, the driveline appears to be complete and in good condition ready to be rebuilt or refreshed during the normal course of its restoration.
Original floors are in excellent condition. This 1937 Cord Beverly is exceptionally complete and will make a fine restored classic. Complete with a rare factory radio, controller and overhead speaker.
Originally a supercharged driveline, it now has a standard naturally aspirated Cord factory engine and transmission with all of the components necessary to use the functional factory outside flex pipe exhaust system.
An important note here is that this car is in the Cord registry as a 1937 Supercharged 812 Custom Beverly versus any of the standard sedan variants and should be valued accordingly. Just adding the outside flexible exhaust pipes does not make a Cord a recognized factory Supercharged car.
An ample amount of the original interior rich maroon broadcloth fabric is included to use for a repair or add to the necessary material needed for reupholstery.
While this Cord is in remarkable condition, it is nevertheless an 80+ year old classic automobile and is being sold as-is without a warranty or any other representations and will be transferred with a clean and clear CALIFORNIA title without any liens or encumbrances whatsoever.
