There’s been a movement afoot recently to legitimize Cord 810/812 replicas such as this 1968 Samco Cord by noting that they weren’t homebuilt hackjob kit cars and were instead assembled in factories as actual production cars. I look at it this way: What automobile built in the 1960s, replica or not, is not considered a legitimate collector car nowadays? From the seller’s description:
