MODELS OF YESTERYEAR Y-19 - 1935 AUBURN 851


The Auburn 851 supercharged speedster was designed and developed by the famous Gordon Buering. Each car was fully tested and guaranteed to exceed 100 m.p.h. with the straight 8 Lycoming 279.2 cubic inch (4.5 litres) supercharged engine. The American driver, Ab Jenkins, in fact drove one at an average of 103 m.p.h. for twenty seven hours. This model replica was modeled on the vehicle currently residing at the Beaulieu Motor Car Museum at Hampshire, England. See more.
