The Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum has acquired a 1936 Cord 810 Westchester sedan donated by Betty Malks of Capitola, California.
This Cord has an extraordinary story. It was known as “Moonshadow” by its former owner, the late Josh B. Malks, who was an early Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg Club member and editor of the club’s newsletter. During Mr. Malks’ ownership, this Cord traveled on three continents. From the Swiss Alps to the Dead Sea, this Cord drove tens of thousands of miles. It performed an annual pilgrimage to the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Reunion. Through Mr. Malks’ tireless efforts and his use of this Cord, he was able to preserve and tell the amazing story of the Cord 810/812 automobile.
The Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum is located in the original 1930s national headquarters of the legendary Auburn Automobile Company and is a National Historic Landmark. Information can be found at automobilemuseum.org
