Lot #985 - This is the car that defined sex appeal and speed for the 30's and beyond. The Auburn Speedster has the lines of a thoroughbred and comes from a stable of cards that are arguably some of the finest cars on the planet. This car is registered with the Auburn, Cord, Duesenberg Club and has benefited from an extensive restoration in 2003. The car is an 8-100 model with the famous Lycoming straight 8 aircraft engine developed by E.L. Cord and used on these beautiful automobiles along with the "dual-ratio" differential to make it one of the fastest cars of the day reaching 117 mph. 1932 also brought the Schebler TX carburetor adding 10 horsepower more and making these Auburns run smooth and reliable. This car, hand-built as a sedan was re-bodied 45 years ago when Glen Prey bought the name, rights and parts from the Auburn line, making approximately 11 cars. This is your chance to own a rare and beautiful running automobile with many awards under her belt. This car and it's color, design and Auburn quality speaks for itself. I hate to sell it but I am moving to New Zealand and someone else can carry on giving the public a chance to marvel and enjoy this very collectible automobile. "A very wise investment indeed".
