The Auburn Motor Company succumbed to the Great Depression, and so the 1937 Cord was the last one ever made. The model was part of the Ertl Collectibles, and is an easy-to-assemble kit, with no glue required (takes about 15 minutes, with the needed tool supplied). The wheels roll freely, but the doors do not open. The roof cover is removable.
