1935 Auburn 851 SC Phaeton offered with a reserve

We are very pleased to offer this very nicely restored car. Finished in a striking cataloque color -Deep Sea Green with a Tobacco full leather interior and Tan top; the car sports driving lights, idemounted spare, nd integrated trunk. An ACD certified car with a known history going back many years, he car has a lot of hard to find correct features such as the heart shaped windshield wiper motors, adio head, riginal splash pans, nd a very rare factory exhaust cut out. Of course the real special thing here is the supercharged motor with the sporting outside exhaust- think about it- only the most exciting cars from the classic era had outside exhausts- the Mercedes-the Bentley-and of course the Duesenberg. The 35-6 Supercharged Auburns are definitely the "Baby Duesenberg".
With few made new and only 20 listed in the ACD Directory, he Supercharged Phaeton is a rare and exciting tour car that really has few peers. Featuring 150 HP, ight steering, fully synchronized and rather sweet gearbox, nd a dual ratio rear end, hese cars are quite capable of 100 MPH, nd will travel comfortably at highway speeds all day long.
The Gordon Buehrig designed 35-6 Auburn is one of the most beautiful cars of the Classic Era, car that made history, car that rewards the driver in so many ways, car you and drive and enjoy.
This car runs and drives very well and really needs nothing but a happy new owner. I would not hesitate to drive this car cross country today.
An extensive file of records, estoration photos, ooks, nd manuals accompany the car.

The Auburn Automobile Company grew out of the Eckhart Carriage Company, ounded in Auburn, ndiana, n 1875 by Charles Eckhart (1841–1915). Eckhart's sons, rank and Morris, egan making automobiles on an experimental basis before entering the business in earnest, bsorbing two other local carmakers and moving into a larger plant in 1909. The enterprise was modestly successful until materials shortages during World War I forced the plant to close. In 1919, he Eckhart brothers sold out to a group of Chicago investors headed by Ralph Austin Bard, ho later served as Assistant Secretary of the Navy for President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and as Under Secretary of the Navy for President Roosevelt and for President Harry S. Truman. The new owners revived the business but failed to realize the profits that they hoped for. In 1924, hey approached Errett Lobban Cord (1894–1974), highly successful automobile salesman, ith an offer to run the company. Cord countered with an offer to take over completely in what amounted to a leveraged buyout. The Chicago group accepted.
Cord aggressively marketed the company's unsold inventory and completed his buyout before the end of 1925. In 1926, e partnered with Duesenberg Corporation, amous for its racing cars, nd used it as the launching platform for a line of high-priced luxury vehicles. He also put his own name on a front-wheel-drive car, he Cord, ater referred to as "L-29"..
Employing imaginative designers such as Alan Leamy and Gordon Buehrig, ord built cars that became famous for their advanced engineering as well as their striking appearance, .g., he 1928 Auburn Boattail Speedster, he Model J Duesenbergs, he 1935–1937 Auburn Speedsters and the 810/812 Cords.
