Production started in 1929 and ended in 1932 after a run of 4429 cars. In 1935 another Cord was introduced, just as revolutionary as the L29, the Cord 810. The 810 was not only fitted with the revolutionary drivetrain from the L29 it also stood out because of its stunning styling.

Responsible for the bodywork was ex-Duesenberg designer Harry Miller Buehrig. The body was not only special because of its style but it also sports advanced features like tilting headlights. In 1936 an evolution of the 810, the 812 was launched. The 812 was technically similar to the 810 with the exception of the engine which was now equipped with a Supercharger for extra power.

The second Cord production was yet again short but the Auburn built cars have influenced car designers for many decades.
