Description:

Has there ever been a more dramatic car than the 1935 Auburn 851 Speedster? Designed by a young Gordon Buehrig, it is the culmination of Auburn''s sporting designs over more than a decade, and with a plaque on each one certifying that it had been driven at over 100 MPH, it was perhaps the world''s first supercar. Today, they''re closing in on seven figures, but replicas like this handsome yellow one from California Custom Coach are an affordable way to enjoy the experience of being a one car parade without the massive investment. The sturdy fiberglass body is a dead-ringer for the original, and unlike so many replicas, they clearly went to great lengths to get the little stuff exactly right. The flaring pontoon style fenders, the sloping enclosed radiator shell that was radical for the period, and the car''s defining feature, the pointed "boat tail" have all been expertly rendered here. The bright yellow paint was recently refinished and is believed to be this particular car''s original color, and there''s no arguing that it''s dramatic and extremely flashy. Finish quality is quite nice, with smooth surfaces and excellent gaps, and there are no squeaks and rattles owing to the sturdy build quality. The Auburn was noted for its relative lack of chrome, but the bumpers, grille insert, and steeply raked V-shaped windshield all shine up brightly. This is one heck of a good-looking car, proving once again that great design knows no age. The 2-year-old interior is substantially more updated than the bodywork, with gorgeous two-tone buckets tucked snugly together in the tiny cockpit. The darker leather is actually ostrich skin that adds interest and texture to the upholstery, and the door panels have been finished using the same hides for a wonderful look. Twin instrument panels made of oak add to the close-coupled feel, with the driver enjoying a full array of white-faced gauges from Classic Instruments, all stashed behind a replica banjo steering wheel atop a tilt/telescope steering column. An AM/FM/CD stereo with remote has been installed in front of the passenger and fills the small cockpit with sound, and despite the pointed tail, there''s reasonable storage space accessible through a golf bag door on the passenger''s side. A complete top frame with wooden bows is included, but there is no top, although one could be easily made. While the original was powered by a supercharged straight-8, this one is significantly more reliable and easy to service being a 351 cubic inch Ford V8. The Ford LTD chassis was lengthened to match the Auburn''s original 127-inch wheelbase, but it keeps all its familiar hardware, including the powerful V8 and 3-speed automatic transmission. A few chrome dress-up items give you something to look at under the butterfly hood, but since the show isn''t under the skin, they focused on reliability and service access instead. Underneath there''s an independent front suspension with power steering and power disc brakes, while the live axle out back hangs on trailing arms, coil springs, and air shocks. A single exhaust system is quiet and unobtrusive, and the car is as easy to drive as a late-model. Five new genuine wire wheels were painted to match the body and wear 235/75/15 wide whitewall radials. One of the most iconic designs of all time, this is a fantastic way to enjoy all the looks of the original without the worries or hassles. Call today!
