AUBURN 851S/852S

Coupé, Brougham, 4-door sedan, convertible coupé, convertible Phaeton, Speedster.

The five-bearing eight with 148bhp thanks to a Schwitzer-Cummins centrifugal blower and plated exhaust headers to show it's the top model All speedsters (500 made) allegedly tested at 100mph, and use leftover modified 1931-33 boat-tail bodies. Essentially, only the designation tells a '36 from a '35. Umpteen replicas have been marketed, but the real McCoy comes very expensive indeed.
