Classic Cord Description

The Classic Cord is a Hot Wheels car that was introduced in the 1971 line-up. It is based on a car that was far ahead of it's time; the Cord Model 812. It's long "Coffin Nose" is unmistakable, this car is truley an American Classic.

The Classic Cord is a favourite among collectors and it's run of inly two years (1971-1972) makes it relatively hard to find in any colour. According to Jack Parker, a former Mattel design engineer, the Classic Cord was selected specifically to 'target' the collector market. It features a clear windshield, black interior, removable black roof and a funtional opening hood with a 8v71 Supercharger sticking out. It was issued with a plastic collectors button. As with most plastic parts from the era, the Classic Cord's roof has been reproduced. An original roof will have the seria; number 6472-0510 on the underside.

It is featured on one of the Hot Wheels comic books.
