 The 1930 Cord L-29 was the first American production front-wheel drive car.  The cost was $3,000 but the stock market had just crashed and only 4,400 of these beauties were sold.  The car weighted 4,700 pounds, had 125 horsepower, and a top speed of 80 mph.  Compare this to the 1957 Corvette: 2,985 lbs, 283 hp, 0-60 in 6 seconds, and a top speed of 132 mph.  Production of the Cord L-29 ended in 1932.
