The '66 had styling cues from the Cord to pay homage...

Mine being a 1968 came with 375HP and 500ft/lbs of torque
The front drive L-29 Cord ...started production in 1929!!!!... the 810/812 Beverly and sportsman were late 36, 37 and some considered 38 models.

Miller another American manufacturer had a front wheel drive chassis that competed in the Indy 500 in 1925.
