The trunk is enough to conceal a body. So, if you mafia and wanted a car that fit enough to conceal a death body of your enemy, you should buy this car. (considering almost all 1930's car doesn't have big trunk except an expensive car)

This one is using 6 psi boost mode so it can produce more power. Available for Cord 812 Sportsman only and it's very rare now. It has average speed of 101.72 mph for 24 hours on the Bonneville Salt Flats.
