The 1960s saw the revival of several defunct American marques, including a short-lived Duesenberg revival and the more successful Cord revival, courtesy of arch Cord enthusiast Glenn Prey, whose Chevrolet Corvair-powered revival scaled down the original model's dimensions to 8/10s scale, hence the model's name. Imported in 1990, it has been in one family's ownership since and is said to be in good running order, although it has some signs of ageing. Stored from 2008 until 2017 when it was re-commissioned at a cost of £2000, today it presents a rare opportunity to acquire one of just 97 Glenn Prey Cords.
