In 1960,the Auburn Cord Duesenberg factory was sold and all its original parts inventory, shop drawings, bucks and jigs were utilized by west coast artisans to create an instant secondary Auburn Speedster's market. As astute automobile collector and former Ford Chairman Lee Iacocca stated these second generation Auburns are "A continuation of an iconic American Classic". Due to a legal omission in the purchase of the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Company the Auburn Boat Tail Speedster trade mark lapsed into public domain allowing after market builders and fabricators to recreate replicas or more appropriately termed "Second Generation" cars with new-old Auburn stock and recast and also re-manufactured parts. This absolutely is NOTa kit car. The same omission in protecting the trade mark occurred with Carroll Shelby's Cobra and the Ford GT 250 allowing replicas into the market.

This Second Generation Auburn 857 was built in 1978 by the Custom CValifornia Coach in Pasadena, California from the original casts and molds from the actual Auburn Automobile Company in Auburn, Indiana. The AUBURN CORD DUESENBERG Company was purchased in the mid 1960's by the forward thinking Glenn Pray and these second generation models were based on the desirable 1936 Auburn with outstanding reliable performance and sensational curb appeal and was professionally manufactured in the second generation Auburn Speedster factory in southern California to extremely high standards.
