Built specifically by customer request to match the details of an original as closely as possible!

Certainly one of the iconic cars of the 1930's, the Gordon Buehrig and Count Alexis de Sakhnoffsky designed Auburn Boattail Speedster continues to be one of the most head turning vehicles to roam our roadways. Originally an all steel body fitted with a supercharged Lycoming straight 8 under the hood, they can claim price tags well into the $800,000 range for pristine original examples. One of the first to produce a replica of the body in fiberglass form in the early 1970's would be Elegant Motors, based in Indianapolis, Indiana. They would offer several configurations of the original Auburn Speedster, including a 4-seater Phaeton and long wheelbase version for taller drivers. It was founded by Del Amy and Dick Passwater, a former stock car racer. They would provide buyers a full complement of custom options, including Chevrolet Corvette or Ford powertrains. With sensational reviews from their turnkey Speedsters for having remarkable authenticity by major publications like Motor Trend, Playboy, and Car Classics, it lead to more neo-classic models by Elegant Motors to include a Cord 820 Phaeton, Shelby Cobra 427, Lamborghini Countach, and legendary Cheetah! The Auburn 852 Speedster offered here is an extraordinarily authentic example not easily duplicated for the money!

We are pleased to have this 1981 Auburn 852 Boattail Speedster by Elegant Motors offered for sale! It was special built for the original owner with the challenge to replicate the original as close as possible, keeping onlookers guessing! Finished in a beautiful Signal Red finish with Cream accents and closely matched Ivory leather interior upholstery, it makes a significant first impression! Fitted to a modified GM chassis, under the hood lies a Pontiac 400ci V8 with 4-barrel Quadrajet carburetion and Turbo-Hydramatic 350 3-speed automatic transmission with limited slip rear differential. Options include air conditioning, power front disc brakes, power steering, tilt column, cruise control, electric wipers, turn signals, heat/defrost, fog lamps, seatbelts and more!

Bringing this particular example to a higher level of accuracy are some often overlooked characteristics. These include the engine exhaust ducts exiting only on the driver's better simulating the original straight 8 engine design, chrome teardrop headlamps, exterior hood release latches, period correct 15 wire spoke wheels with Auburn 8 caps, golf bag door, glass wind wings, beveled glass rearview mirror, functional dual cowl ventilation, and exceptional aluminum Auburn dash, chrome bezel gauges, Auburn-Crosley AM radio, with the Al Jenkins plaque! Even though this is an automatic, the shifter handle is also nicely disguised with a clever shift knob!

It really is a superb road going example with wet weather gear to include a bolt-on cloth Stayfast convertible top and Plexiglas side curtains, upgraded aluminum C&R performance radiator, clutch fan, Delco HEI ignition, dual exhaust, and period correct The Lester Tire Co wide whitewall 7.00-15 4-ply tires on ground. We would welcome any prospective buyer to schedule an inspection of this example in person, or answer any specific questions by phone. Act quickly on this one, as they simply don't appear on the market with these very special characteristics very often! Thanks for looking!
