Wealthy automobile enthusiast Henry McVickar fell in love with the Cord Front Drive upon its introduction in 1929. A new, bare L-29, chassis number 2926758, was dispatched to McVickar from the factory in Auburn, Indiana. The town car body from the McVickar family's 1927 Minerva, built by d'Ieteren Freres, of Belgium, was relocated to the Cord by a highly skilled coachbuilder, reportedly a member of the Brunn family. The completed Cord was registered to McVickar for the first time on December 21, 1929, as is testified to by the original registration document that remains with the car today..
