Lot #1010.1 - The Auburn 850Y phaeton is distinguished as a 1934 example by its unique, one-year-only radiator shell and grille design. It is also one of the particularly attractive phaeton sedans and is impressively equipped as well as with dual spotlights, dual side-mount spare wheels, Trippe speedlights, chrome hubcaps, wide white wall tires, a folding windscreen and dual ratio rear axle. It is finished in two-tone burgundy and red and has a matching burgundy interior and white convertible top. The engine has been upgraded to a '30s Buick overhead valve straight 8 that is coupled to a floor-shift transmission. Auburn established a deserved reputation in the 1930s for superior value, style, luxury and performance in the mid-priced field, attributes that are on display in this 1934 850Y phaeton sedan. The coachwork features a fully folding top along with roll-up windows for weather protection. The Buick valve-in-head straight 8 complements the 2-speed dual ratio rear axle for superior highway performance and economy.
