God damn they just don't make gorgeous cars like that anymore. Your friend is a lucky guy to have that in his collection. I'm completely assuming if he has a near concourse caliber car that he has more than one nice ride.
Thanks for sharing the pics!

Is that what they looked like originally or has it been customized?

edit- I know the mega buck paintjob is better than anything from the 30's, I'm talking about the rest..

For the record, the car is a replica. Its a Glenn Pray "revival" replica model. He purchased all the blueprints and such from Dallas Winslow, who owned the defunct Auburn Automobile Company headquarters in the 1940s and basically made it a parts supplier for Auburns and Cords. Notable differences include the wider radiator grill and different top and side angles of the boattail rear and a shorter wheelbase.

It's aS close to the real thing that you're going to get without having a $300k+ car that is foolish to take anywhere outside of Pebble Beach.

Haha....sorry. Cars like this, when you see them, you have to assume they are replicas. Much like Shelby Cobras. Because you have to be out of your mind to drive a real one around.

With that being said, this is as close to being real as you're going to get. A majority of the parts are interchangable to a real one. Much like brookville...they make steel replica model A and model B bodies.....85%+ of the parts are interchangeable with the real thing.
