FRONT WHEEL DRIVE…THE AMERICAN WAY

Production Years: 1929
Country: United States

The Cord L29 and the Ruxton were the first two front wheel drive cars offered to the American public in 1929.

 As a motorsports enthusiast, E.L Cord was impressed with the performance and durability of Harry Miller’s front-wheel drive race cars and purchased the passenger car rights in 1926. Development and testing by Cornelius VanRanst and Fred Duesenberg brought the L29 to market a few months ahead of Ruxton. Built in Auburn, IN  L29’s are known for their lovely low-slung styling as well as good handling.

 The original cost in 1929 was $3,095-$3,295 with about 5000 sold. Of the 300 remaining L29’s only 8 Broughams are known to exist.
