Vintage Cord 810 Ads: “Throbbing With Vitality”, “Son, I’m Proud You Chose A Super-Charged Cord For Your Graduation Present” and “Of Course I Own A Cord”

Here’s three vintage ads for the legendary Cord 810. I struggled to decide which one to put first, but then she got the better of me.

I could have used a dad like that.

If the other two don’t scream “upper crust” then this one positively does. The older gentleman who’s not ready to be old yet: “My daughter says she likes to dance with me at the night clubs”. Really? “Daughter” sounds to me like a euphemism for “mistress”.
