The Cord automobile, as well as Cord the man, has from its genesis signified innovation, power, and mystique. Those Cords that survive continue to inspire and influence the design of modern automobiles. Spectacular photographs combined with in-depth captions tell the story. Includes a concise and informative history of Cord, both the company and the man.
