THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

The 1960s saw a rise in the replica (or 'evocation') industry in the USA, where several evocative pre-war cars were reprised with contemporary running gear while retaining the looks of the original model. The Excalibur Mercedes-Benz SSK replica kicked things off in 1963, followed by replicas of Auburns and Cords. The Auburn Speedster Replicas would achieve particular fame as the hero car in such varied examples of cinematic greatness including the 1990 movie Dick Tracy starring Warren Beatty and Madonna and the 1980s TV hit Remington Steel featuring future James Bond star Pierce Brosnan.

This Auburn Speedster replica was built for Ray Moss by Classic Coach and Performance – Nova Systems on December 10, 1979—the fifth car built in the series. The early history of this vehicle is not known, but it appeared in the collection of William Krebs of Southern California in 2000 before being acquired by the current owner in August of 2007. Bought with 26,663 original miles, fewer than 600 additional miles have been added in the past 13 years of ownership.

Recently run after sitting for four years, this is a unique opportunity to acquire one of the most iconic designs of the 1930s—but still enjoy the benefits of power steering, brakes and windows in addition to an automatic transmission, an AM/FM radio, and more. And based on the film appearances of the model, it is perfect for fighting crime too.
