Description

This 1935 Auburn 851 is based on a 127-inch wheelbase chassis with a live rear axle, beam front axle and 4-wheel hydraulic drum brakes. The chassis is suspended with Parallel semi-elliptic leaf springs at all four corners. The rear axle is a 2-speed Columbia called a Dual Ratio by Auburn that provides higher speed with less engine RPMs in high range. The 16-inch steel-spoke wheels are painted and are equipped with full chrome wheel covers shod with 6.50-16 white sidewall tires. The 280 CI L-head inline 8-cylinder engine is equipped with a vertically mounted Schweitzer-Cummins centrifugal supercharger that, all together, develops 150 HP. The 5-window coupe body is finished in gloss black, and its sporty design is accented by dual side-mounted spares and deeply arched chrome bumpers cap off the front and rear. Rear-hinged doors add to the modern styling and allow easier entrance into the seat. The vented hood sides display a chrome Supercharged badge on each side, announcing its performance superiority to the public. The interior is finished in soft wide-pleated gray cloth with gray wool carpeting on the floor. This Auburn—Chassis No. 32980M and Engine No. GH3237—has been treated to a comprehensive restoration.
