Absolutely Gorgeous 1936 Auburn Reproduction

1936 Auburn speedster replica by Kate Tompkins

Saw this beauty at a local car show on the weekend. It’s a reproduction of a 1936 supercharged Auburn speedster, one of the famous boattails. I see there’s a company online called Speedster Motorcar that sells kits for these. If that’s what this is, the owner did a beautiful job of putting it together.

According to Concept Carz, 1936 was the last year Auburn made the speedster. At the time, you could pick one up for $2,245. Today, they go at auction for six figures. Not unreasonable for a rolling piece of art, but I think I’d rather drive the replica.
