In 1937 E.L. Cord introduced the model 812. Some 688 812’s were sold with superchargers. The optional Schwitzer-Cummins centrifugal supercharger added over 40 horsepower to the Lycoming V-8 for a total of 170hp and over $415 to the price of the car for a lofty total of $3,010. Lycoming engineers insisted the supercharged motor produced 186-195hp although Cord chose to advertise the car with 'just' 170hp. Most supercharged 812’s featured external exhaust pipes running from the hood sides into the fenders. When the design of this car was originally penned, it was to be a "baby" Duesenberg.
