1969 Ford Mustang Becomes... 1937 Cord 812

In case you’ve never heard about the Cord 812, it was a luxury vehicle sold with six different bodystyles starting 1937. Bearing a unique design, the Cord 812 could be had with a supercharger for a price around $2,500, pretty expensive when compared to most up to $1,000 entry-level cars of the era.

These vehicles are obviously expensive and rare nowaday, but the Cord you’re going to see below is a little bit different. Although it may look like an original factory version to the untrained eye, this 812 Convertible is actually just a replica that was built on a... 1969 Ford Mustang platform and drivetrain.

Moreover, the replica also gained the pony’s 5.0-liter V8 engine, so it’s ready for some pretty fast action. Well, almost, because the owner says it still needs to finishing touches here and there and a new paint job. The vehicle is up for auction on eBay and the $9,000 offered up until how haven’t met the sellers reserve price.

Weird? Certainly! Cool? We’ll let you decide that. One thing’s for sure, we like Cords and we definitely like Mustangs.
