1936 Other Makes Boattail
You're looking at an iconic classic with a modern twist. This 1936 Auburn Boattail Speedster replica has cool modern pain, modern trim, and the right modern features. But everyone knows the classic iconic silhouette, so you get all the best upgrades without ever losing the vintage feeling. While this car obviously did not come from the 1930s, it also is suspected to be a much younger build than the replicas you see made in the '70s and '80s. That's why this one has eye-catching modern features like the Viper Red paint and gold, hydro-dipped carbon fiber trim for a unique and stylish finish. It also has upgrades like sport mirrors, much of the trim has been shaved, and there's a coordinating gold bumper and grille. The exterior exhaust tubes even get some custom flair. Not only does this presentation look good, but also we believe that the 5,407 miles on this represent just how few miles have been traveled since it was built. But even with fresher feeling, this car never strays from why we love this icon. The wide pontoon fenders, the steeply raked windshield, and of course, the iconic pointed "boattail" that made the entire rear end an exercise in opulence. Bringing the ideas of classic and modern perfectly together are the large 22-inch Dayton wire wheels with ultra-low profile tires. The tan folding roof looks great against the bold red paint, and it looks even better when you take it down, because there is a full tan interior waiting for you. Just like the exterior, the interior feels like the right mix of old and newer worlds. Suicide doors and a traditional bench seat are balanced with an AM/FM/CD stereo and power windows (the glass comes with the sale.) But what will really grab your attention it the full chrome steering wheel that's equal parts elegance and sporty. If you're a driver, the best reason for owning a replica car like this is under the hood. It's a 351 cubic-inch Ford V8. More than just look bright in the engine bay, these Windsor motors are known for being powerful and reliable. Plus, components and maintenance for the V8 and its three-speed automatic transmission are easy to find and well within budget. It's this kind of affordable ownership that has led to this car being so well cared for over the years. The motor fires up nicely, and it's easy to feel the '30s driving experience as wind whips past the low windshield. Great features like power steering, front disc brakes, and a far more modern suspension than Auburn offered further this ability to enjoy a classic built for driving. This is the solution for drivers who get nervous taking out high-dollar classics, or the dreamer who can't afford a Boattail from the original run. So don't let this opportunity slip away. Call now!
