Looks like a Cord 810, but something makes me wonder whether it is....?

I guess it's a Samco Royale. Here's a 1970 version.

I doubt it's a genuine Cord; something about it looks off. I suspect it's a Glenn Pray 8/10 Sportsman replica, which was 8/10 the size of the original Cord.

I found pictures of a similar car at http://oldcarandtruckpictures.com/OldClassicConvertibles/index-a.html that was identified as a "1935 Cord Roadster (1966 Glenn Pray 8/10 Cord replicar)"

A brief history is given here: http://www.stutzbearcat.com/cordhistory.htm According to them, the Glenn Pray 8/10 Sportsman was a front-wheel drive replica with a Corvair engine and a composite body made from Royalite plastic. They give the years 1964-1966 and a production total of 97 units.

A very useful article about the Glenn Pray Cord: http://www.glennpray.com/Hemmings%20Article

Most Cord replucas had fixed headlights, but some of the early ones did not.

You're right, it looks too small for a real Cord. Cords are smaller than they look, but not THAT small.
