This handsome L-29 Cabriolet hails from the first year of production of these innovative, front-wheel drive cars. Finished in pale yellow with evergreen accents over a tan top and handsome evergreen leather interior, it joined the collection 25 years ago. The subject of an older restoration, it was repainted and retrimmed several decades ago. The interior shows quite nicely, as does the exterior trim, but the paint has begun to shrink in places. Nonetheless, the car still has plenty of presence. Perfect for a mild refresh and active tour use or restoration and presentation on a concours field-either way it will bring smiles to the new owner and anyone lucky enough to see him or her in their stunning cabriolet. The L29 Cord is one of the iconic American car designs from the prewar period. Few other cars built in that period have low slung looks, and even fewer could stake the claim of being some of the first front wheel drive American road cars. Representing the pinnacle of American Motorcar technology and timeless styling, a L29 Cord is a must for any serious collector.
