The Boattail Speedster is intimately identified with Auburn. It was designed in 1928 to create a signature product that represented all that E.L. Cord was positioning Auburn to be in the automobile market: fast, sleek, stylish and a value for the consumer's money that was second to none. Powered by Lycoming's powerful, smooth inline eight cylinder engine, the sleek curves of the Auburn Boattail Speedster promised epic performance. Auburn backed up the Speedster's appearance by sending Wade Morton to Daytona Beach where he set two flying mile speed records at over 108 mph. This Auburn 8-98 Boattail Speedster has received a comprehensive, Concours-level restoration by Eric LaVine. It makes a dramatic visual statement in bright red with a maroon accent, matching maroon leather and a black cloth top, riding on chrome wire wheels with Firestone dual whitewall tires, a pair of sidemounted spares with mirrors, Trippe lights, dual horns and a spirited lady chrome mascot atop the radiator. Built as a combination show and tour car, it has fiberglass boattail and is fully equipped for touring, including freewheeling. It is mechanically and cosmetically excellent and despite being toured for some years its maintenance has been to the highest standards and it presents and drives superbly, with the distinct advantage of having any bugs and issues worked out of it. Professionally done from top to bottom, detailed and marvelously maintained it is ready to hit the road or the Concours field.
