Condition:

This example was believed to have sold new in California and documentation provided indicates is was with its last California owner from January 1994 through November 2012. It then made its way to a collection in Iowa where is was used only sparingly. Today, the new odometer reads only 3,372 miles!

It continues to run and operate so wonderfully with a full dual exhaust system providing a robust exhaust note, new engine air filter, brand new ignition system to include plugs, wires, carp, rotor, and points, new master brake cylinder & booster, new brake fluid, new engine fluids, thermostatically-controlled electric cooling fan, and original Ford 4-barrel carburetion. It is titled as a 1982 production vehicle.

Literature:

One of the most revered designs to come from the 1930’s showrooms would be the 1935 Auburn 851 Speedster. It was quickly adapted and replicated by the 1970’s using modern fiberglass molding practices. Using updated engines, chassis’, braking components, automatic transmissions, it quickly became a leisurely car to own and drive! Although not exactly cheap, California Custom Coach, based in Pasadena, CA, produced a complete, factory built turn-key “Model 876” example in the late 1970’s for a hefty $37,500 for a Speedster and $42,500 for their unique 4-passenger Phaeton! Primarily consisting of a Ford drivetrain, suspension, and stretched chassis providing a 127” wheelbase, they provided faithful service to their proud owners driving them down the road.
