    1931 Cord L-29 LaGrande Speedster

    This Cord is an authentic recreation (not a replica - but a “recreation”) of the 1931 Paris Automobile Show car. The original car was purchased at the Paris Automobile Show by Paul Berns, the husband of screen actress, Jean Harlow (however, there is some question as to the validity of this claim.) This vehicle was built using an original Cord chassis and running gear. Every detail of the original is seen in this recreation including door panel and humidor. Car collector Dr. Fay Culbreth commissioned Stan Gilliland, of Kansas, to build the vehicle. The coachwork was carefully constructed by Mark Kennison to identically match the vintage Cord.

    The fate of the “original” Phil Wright designed speedster is unknown……….. or rather, a mystery see my post of October 6, 2012, found here ( ) for the full story.

    The 1931 front-wheel drive Cord is poweredby a 297 cubic inch Lycoming in-line eight-cylinder engine that produces 125 horsepower. This custom bodied speedster is built on the standard 138-inch wheelbase.

    This was just one of those well timed moments that comes along now and then. I had Deb and Cos posed a certain way and Deb remarked, "This reminds me of ballet" and she pulled out this very cute arabesque. I started yelling at her, "Do it again Deb, DO IT AGAIN!" then just as Alex went to take the photo, a gust of wind blew and lifted Deb's veil.

    1931 Cord LeGrande Speedster (Reproduction)

    Separating fact from fiction, mystery from the known.

    While I do not claim to be an authority on vintage, antique, classic automobiles, I will profess to be an ardent “seeker of facts” especially in instances where there is so much mystery (and a bit of drama) surrounding a particular subject. The 1931 Cord LeGrande is one such subject. Even the nomenclature itself when describing this car is subject to some confusion – in various articles the car is sometimes designated “La Grande” (or LaGrande). In other references, it is described as “LeGrande (or Le Grande). Perhaps a Frenchman could clarify this seemingly minor discrepancy. For the sake of this article I will consistently use the terminology “La Grande” as I believe this is the more proper or correct spelling.

    The story of the 1931 Cord La Grande began as the brainchild of a young designer by the name of Philip O. Wright, who had been working for the Walter M. Murphy Company in Pasadena, California. Murphy was a premier body fabricator very popular in the 20’s and 30’s. Some of the sportiest Duesenberg Model Js were “Bodied by Murphy”. In 1930 the country was under the gripes of ‘The Great Depression’. Having been warned that his job was in jeopardy due to shrinking revenues, Wright left California and headed for Detroit in search of work. Stopping along the way at a sleepy little town in Indiana named Auburn, Wright landed an interview with then Auburn Automobile Company president, Roy Faulkner. Although Faulkner found Wright’s sketches of a sleek and innovative version of Cord’s L-29 car exciting, he informed Wright that due to the poor economy, he could not put Wright on his payroll. * But what Faulkner could do, despite the poor economy, is “steal” Wright’s plans for this sleek speedster model and this was precisely what he did! Very soon thereafter, Faulkner authorized the construction of a speedster based on Wright’s sketches. Cord’s stylist, Al Leamy was called in to rework the designs to reflect E. L. Cord’s minor design alterations. Although based on the chassis components and the 298 cubic-inch Lycoming eight cylinder engine, rather than the squared off, vertical and horizontal lines of the standard Cord L-29, this ‘boat-tail’ prototype model speedster was sleek and modern, with aircraft inspired ‘pontoon’ fenders and a steeply raked Vee windshield.

    The result was the one and only 1931 Cord L-29 La Grande Speedsters ever built.

    Sources indicate the La Grande Speedster made its debut at the 1931 New York Salon and was subsequently shown in Toronto, Canada and then at various Cord dealerships around the United States. It is at this point that things become a little ‘fuzzy’. Several sources report that the American movie actress, Jean Harlow’s new husband, Paul Bern, an executive at MGM purchased the Cord LeGande Speedster while attending the 1931 New York Salon and supposedly made arrangements to have the car shipped to Paris for the couple’s honeymoon. This does not exactly ‘fit’ with the facts. Paul Bern and Jean Harlow were not yet married in 1931 – they were actually married on July 2, 1932.

    Another story is (as reported by the ACD Museum in Auburn, Indiana) is that Paul Bern purchased the original La Grande Speedster while attending the Concours d’Elegance show in Paris. From other sources, it was indicated that after a major spat between Berns' and Jean Harlow while in France, the car was shipped back to the United States. Here again, there is no record or evidence of this event having taken place. No shipping manifests, no personal accounts, no pictures and no official documents to support this ‘theory’. Additionally, soon after returning to the United States and only two months after marrying Jean Harlow, (September 5, 1932) Bern was found dead from a gunshot wound, in their home in Beverly Hills. The trail involving the mysterious 1931 La Grande Speedster went totally cold. Actually there are no records in existence that substantiate that the Cord La Grande Speedster was ever purchased by Paul Bern. nor anyone else, for that matter.

    Putting aside the rumor that Jean Harlow’s husband bought the Cord Speedster, it is known that around late 1931 or early 1932 the La Grande Speedster was returned to the E.L. Cord Company and was refreshed for an appearance at the Concourse d’Elegance in Paris, France. It was necessary to replace the slim Woodlite headlights (as shown in the above image), which were illegal in Europe, with standard round headlights. The car then departed for France, were it appeared with actress Suzy Vincent at the Paris Concours d’Elegance. The car achieved First Place, repeating the success of Count Alexis de Saknoffsky and his Hayes-bodied Cord L-29 the preceding year. Immediately following its applause at the Paris Concours, the prize of the E.L. Cord Company appeared to drop off the face of the earth. The Cord La Grande Speedster disappeared in Europe and despite the best efforts of collectors, historians, restorers and dealers over the intervening years, not the slightest hint of its fate has yet surfaced. To this day, it remains one of the true enigmas of the classic car world.

    To the best of my knowledge, there are only two known Cord La Grande Speedster reproductions in the world today – the one shown above which Dr. Fay Culbreth, an orthodontist and antique car enthusiast, commissioned Stan Gilliland of Kansas to build. This reproduction was built using the original Cord L-29 chassis and running gear. Bodywork was performed by Mark Kennison partner/owner of D&D Classic of Covington, Ohio. This exquisitely detailed 1931 Cord La Grande Speedster is currently the property of the Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg Museum in Auburn, Indiana having been acquired by generous donation from the former owner, David Stevenson of Farmington, CT and from Museum Collection Funds.

    The only other known 1931 Cord La Grande Speedster reproduction is a beautiful Royal Cranberry and Cashmere Cream La Grande reproduction shown here. This particular car was completed in 2004. It has been displayed at many different venues Meadowbrook, Silverbrook, Palo Alto, Rancho Mirage and at the Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg Festival as well as probably many other venues of which I am not aware. In early 2007 this fine replica joined the collection of renowned collector, John O’Quinn until being sold through RM Auctions for $368,500. According to sjb4photos Stahls Automotive Foundation in Chesterfield, Michigan acquired this beautiful cranberry and cream Cord replica.

    Obviously, both exquisite La Grande reproductions have been (and hopefully will continue to be) photographed by many photographers, in many venues, over the years.

    Minneapolis Fire Station No. 13 was built in 1923. The one-and-a-half story Arts and Crafts Style structure is reminiscent of Bungalows style houses common in the area where it was built. A low, pedimented gable is located over the recessed fire vehicle bay. Above the entrance pedimented gable, a shed-like dormer projects from the roof slope. The station was built to accommodate one fire engine. The former fire station is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

    Text Appearing After Image:

    NEWS. NOTES AND COMMENTS Cromwell, Conn.—During the recent heavy suowa two greenhouses of A. N. Pierson, Inc., partly collapsed under the excessive weight, which also broke some glass in other houses. Montgomery, Ala.—W. C. Cook, who is employed by the Kosemont ©ardens, says that concern supplied sixty designs of an average value of $9 each for the recent funeral of Booker T. Washing- ton at Tuskeegee also many cut flow- ers to other florists who had work for the same funeral. Pontiac, HI.—''A humdinger!" That's the kind of a Christmas sales period W. J. Miller & Son say they had. Although they had prepared for an active trade, it far exceeded their expectations. Their entire force had to work far into the night during the final rush. Everything was cleaned up, the total sales eclipsing those of any previous Christmas period. Danvers, 111.—Fire damaged the greenhouse property of Wellenreiter & Son, December 22, to the extent of $5,000, with insurance of $200. All the stock was either cooked or frozen, ex- cept that of two houses, which was saved from freezing, after hard work, by putting in small stoves. A year ago the day of the fire the -boiler return pipe burst and the whole plant froze. Beacon, N. Y.—James McCall is dead. He had been foreman for the Hammond Paint & Slug Shot Works. His body was taken to Westchester county to be buried beside that of his wife. As a young man, in 1884, Mr. McCall came to Fishkill Landing, as Beacon was for- merly called, with his family. For these thirty-one years, without a break, he was an example of faithful, intelligent service. Sioux City, la.—John O. Freeburg, manager of J. C. Kennison's green- houses, says business was about twenty- five per cent over that of the previous Christmas. Poinsettia pans with ferns were the leading sellers. Cyclamens, primroses and cinerarias were in good demand. Koses and carnations were of good quality and brought fair prices. Delivery was facilitated by the mild weather. San Antonio, Tex.—Paying $60 a month, with free use of a 3-room cot- tage, the position of gardener for the San Antonio arsenal will be filled by competitive examination. This exam- ination is open- to all citizens of the United States who meet the require- ments. For application and examination blank J. M. Hassett, with office at the arsenal, should be addressed. No ap- plication will be accepted unless prop- erly executed and filed with Mr. Hassett by .January 15, 1916. De Kalb, 111.—J. L. Johnson says the 1915 Christmas trade was the largest and best the florists of this city ever had. Pot plants were in heavy demand, par- ticularly poinsettias. The cut flowers were plentiful, but there were not too many of them by any means. As every- thing sold out, the trade has reason to be thankful. Niagara Falls, N. Y.—E. A. Butler & Son had a double-page advertisement in the Journal of December 20. It was the largest florists' ad that has ever been run in a Falls paper. The Journal takes about four inches of space in its reading columns to comment on this and other features connected with the ad and the firm, which is the largest in the city. Clifton Forge, Va.—The Alleghany Horticultural Co., Inc., has been ac- quired by O. C. Ports, who formerly was general manager of the company. The establishment consists of inur acres and four greenhouses, each £5x50. Mr. Ports will operate his range in connection with the store at Clifton Forge. The name of the business has been changed to Clifton Forge Cut Flower & Plant Co. Canal Dover, O.—In the words of C. Betscher, in reference to the Christmas trade, "Everything fit to sell went." Carnations were scarce but of fine qual- ity more of them could have been sold. Koses and violets followed in demand. Plant sales were much larger than for Christmas, 1914. They sold in this or- der: Cyclamens, begonias, primroses and ferns. Total sales were decidedly greater than for the similar period of 1914 prices were about the same. Fort Smith, Ark.—"One thing nice about it was that two-thirds were cash sales, something which never happened before in my experience," remarked George Rye, in commenting on his Christmas sales. Mr. Rye carried a larger stock than he had ever carried before, but cleaned up both on plants and cut flowers. Not only that, but he had to reorder several times owing to four funerals that were held either Christmas or the Sunday following. He also had two funerals December 27. Sedalia, Mo.—The greatest Christmas for florists in the history of this city has just passed. The Archias Floral Co. not only has had an unusually profitable holiday trade, but business throughout December has been exceptionally brisk, with as high as ten funerals in one day. The State Fair Floral Co. had a good run, its new store being a center of attraction. Holiday flowers brought fancy prices in Sedalia. Carnations were at high-water mark and scarce, retailing at $1.50 to $2.50 per dozen. Roses sold freely at $1.50 to $8 per dozen poin- settias, $3 to $6. Denver, Colo.—C. F. Maler is erect- ing a greenhouse at 3914 West Twenty- ninth avenue, at a cost of $4,000. Colorado Springs, Colo.—William Foster, formerly associated with J. F. Wilcox & Sons, of Council Bluffs, la., has purchased the Broadmoor Green- houses and moved his family here. The change was made on account of Mrs. Foster's poor health. ZanesviUe, O.—C. L. Humphrey had to press two auto trucks into service to help get out deliveries during the Christmas rush. Little wrapping was needed for the stock, as the weather was mild. Mr. Humphrey says it was the biggest Christmas trade he ever has had. Falmouth, Mass.—H. V. Lawrence is- sued a unique booklet for Christmas. The cover in red and gold was folded twice, so that it served as the container for two separate 8-page leaflets tied in with ribbon, one leaflet listing greens, the other cut flowers and plants, one printed in green ink, the other in red. - Minneapolis, Minn.—On the occasion of his tenth anniversary as superintend- ent of parks of Minneapolis, Theodore Wirth was tendered a dinner by 200 prominent citizens. The speakers eulo- gized Mr. Wirth for his "achievement in bringing Minneapolis to the foremost place in the world by the beauty and art of its park system." Plans for more neighborhood parks and play- grounds were made after the dinner, and $200,000 a^ year for ten years, to finish the imprrovements, was recom- mended by C. M. Loring, who has been styled the father of t)ie Minneapolis park system. Mitchell, S. D.—W. T. March, man- ager for The Newburys' Mitchell Nurs- ery & Floral Co., is of an opinion con- trary to that of those who consider Chrysanthemum William Turner of comparatively poor commercial value. His company had a great deal of suc- cess in growing this variety last season and disposed of most of them at from $5 to $6 a dozen, which is considered a good price hereabout. This company's November trade showed an increase of almost thirty per cent over November, 1914. It has recently completed a con- tract with the state of South Dakota in which it landscaped, planted and cared for the state capitol grounds for the last twelve months. "We consider this job of more than usilal import- ance," said Manager March, "befcause of the advertising we derived in hav- ing it known that in filling the con- tract we planted 6,000 trees and shrubs, comprising about 300 varieties some- thing unusual for this part of the country.''

    U. S. Veteran’s that severed on Destroyers are being diagnosed with Mesothelioma, Asbestos lung cancer, Asbestosis, and other Asbestos related diseases each year in the U. S. All branches of the U. S. Military used asbestos during the 20th Century with peak years being 1930-1980 because of it fire-retardant properties. U. S. Navy Destroyer is armed warships used for escorting Merchant Marine ships and supplies, transporting military troops, and for anti- submarine warfare. Navy Destroyers carried armaments such as heavy guns, machine guns, depth charges and torpedoes.

    • The first Navy Destroyer Escort was commissioned during WW 2 in 1944.
    • Navy Destroyer crews totaled about 200 sailors and 15 officers.
    • Asbestos was used as a common building material on all Navy ships including Destroyers.
    • A recent study reported that 1 in 3 U. S. Veterans will develop an asbestos-related disease in their lifetime.
    • Most Veterans do not start showing asbestos related symptoms until 10-50 years after their initial exposure.
    • Thousands of shipyard workers, Navy Sailors, U. S. Marines, and civilian contractors labored on navy Destroyer repairs, renovations and demolition.
    • The U.S. Navy description of Destroyers is that they are “fast warships providing multi-mission offensive and defensive capability, independently or in fleet support”.
    • Destroyers are large multi-gun armed warships that were heavily during World War II and for several decades after in other armed conflicts around the world.

    Navy Sailors and shipyard workers were daily exposed to toxic asbestos dust and fibers where they inhaled and ingested them without any protection in their workplace. Families of workers and other government contractors that were exposed to asbestos secondhand are also developing Mesothelioma and other asbestos-related disease.

    Malignant Mesothelioma has been linked to workplace asbestos exposure.

    Navy Veterans and Asbestos Exposure

    Thousands of U. S. servicemen and women came into contact with asbestos fibers during their tour of service. Many Veterans diagnosed with Mesothelioma have complained that they were not given any warning, training or respiratory protective gear when handling, installing, loading, repairing, or removing asbestos-containing products.

    • Asbestos was used by the U. S. Military in more than 300 different materials and products.
    • Millions of U. S. Veterans have been exposed to asbestos during their tour of service.
    • A recent study showed that as many as 30-40% of Mesothelioma victims is U. S. Veterans.
    • Mesothelioma has affected veterans from all branches of service including those who worked in Navy shipyards.
    • The U.S. Military used thousands of asbestos-containing products in their ships between the 1920-late 1970’s.
    • Asbestos was listed as the top contaminant at 32 U.S. Army base closures during the 1990s.
    • Mesothelioma and other asbestos related diseases primarily occur in Veterans between the ages of 55-75.
    • Veterans who served between 1940 and 1980 have the greatest risk of developing Mesothelioma or an asbestos-related cancer.
    • 14 in every 1,000 WW II shipyard workers died of an asbestos-related disease compared to 18 in every 1,000 combat related deaths.
    • Asbestos was used heavily in the shipbuilding and in military ships. Many veterans working in confined quarters have been exposed to asbestos.

    Asbestos is most dangerous when inhaled or ingested. Most U. S. Veterans are particularly at risk because that worked on building and demolition projects that exposed them to asbestos fibers and dust. It was nearly impossible to avoid coming into to contact with asbestos if you worked on military construction sites.

    Veterans were daily exposed to toxic asbestos dust and fibers where they inhaled and ingested them without any protection in their workplace. Families of workers and other military veterans that were exposed to asbestos secondhand are also developing Mesothelioma and other asbestos-related disease.

    Veterans diagnosed with Mesothelioma have complained that they were not given any warning, training or respiratory protective gear when handling, installing, loading, repairing, or removing asbestos-containing products.

    Veterans have the right to sue asbestos manufacturers that exposed them to asbestos.

    We Do Not Sue the Military or the Government

    Asbestos related cancers among Veterans are not the fault of the military or even the government. It is the fault of the asbestos manufacturers and companies. Asbestos companies knew of the potential health issues related to asbestos exposure as far back as the 1920’s, but knowingly hid this information from the public, the medical community and even the U.S. Military and continued to profit off their deadly asbestos materials.

    If you are a Veteran and are suffering from Mesothelioma cancer, you can seek justice from these greedy asbestos manufacturers. It’s not unpatriotic to fight back against the big asbestos companies that have exposed you deadly asbestos products.

    Veterans injured from asbestos exposure during their service have the right to sue the asbestos companies that produced and sold the asbestos materials and products used by the U. S. Military

    Asbestos Trust Funds and Mesothelioma Claims

    U. S. Asbestos Bankruptcy Trusts Funds have paid out nearly 21 billion to more than 600,000 asbestos claimants. There are about 60 active Asbestos Trust Funds with an estimated $32 billion in remaining assets.

    Asbestos Settlement Trusts were established to help compensate workers and their families for asbestos exposure causing Mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases. When an Asbestos company establishes a Trust Fund all settlements are managed by trustees that decide the compensation amounts paid to Mesothelioma claimants. U. S. Courts allow Asbestos defendants to file for protection under a legal process known as bankruptcy reorganization. This allows the company to pay claims and stay in business.

    Asbestos Trust Fund settlements typically do not come with an admission of guilt by the asbestos company that set up the trust.

    If you have a history of asbestos exposure you should be checked each year by a qualified doctor.
