1936 Cord 810 Winchester Sedan - Hot Wheels Hall of Fame Series (B2545)

This is by far my favorite model by Hot Wheels in my collection. It is the 1936 Cord 810 (B2545)  from the 2003 Hall of Fame Series - Legends. It is honoring Gordon Miller Buehrig. From the card:
"Credit for the 810 Cord has been given to many, but no one more deserving than Gordon Miller Buehrig, who brought his talents to three legendary marques: Auburn, Cord and Duesenberg. While still in his twenties, Buehrig's contribution to the evolution of the automobile was already substantial. As chief designer at Duesenberg from 1929 to 1933, he was responsible for numerous celebrated coachwork designs. In bringing his passion for design to the Cord, Buehrig created a thing of beauty; graceful in proportions, low-slung and high powered. He avoided conventional design techniques, while realizing the entirely new and historic 810 Cord."

Cord was Indiana based, so it has added appeal for me. This model has some of the best tampos I've seen, and I love these wheels and the interior. It is just about perfect.
