  • Auction: 8th Dec 2018 - RM Sotheby's - The Petersen Automotive Museum Auction

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION at RM Sothebys' The Petersen Automotive Museum Auction event, 8 December 2018. Estimate:$220,000 - $260,000 Factory-supercharged example with its original engineFormer long-term California enthusiast ownershipAward-winning older restoration in beautiful factory-correct colorsACD Club Certified Category One (C-219) The Duesenberg Model J had become available with a supercharger in 1932. Three years later, the eight-cylinder Auburn could also be had with a blower. All that was left was to fit the engine to the new Cord of 1936. A year later, as the 810 evolved into the 812 with production fully underway, the Auburn Automobile Companys most flamboyant line received supercharged power as a popular $415 option on all models.Lycoming began with the 810s stock V-8 engine, revising the design with a modified firing order, lowered compression ratio, more extreme camshaft grind, and a unique, larger Stromberg AA-25 carburetor. The engine exhaled through a functional chrome sideexhaust, an identifying mark of all supercharged Auburn products that was believed to have been added to the Cord by stylist Alex Tremulis, later of Tucker fame, and was engineered into being by none other than August Duesenberg.The supercharged Cord had a factory-quoted power output of 170 hp, although Lycoming employees later recounted numbers as high as 195. The factory sent two properly equipped Beverly Sedans to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, where, driven by Ab Jenkins and Billy Winn, they recorded the highest average speed over a 24-hour period ever achieved at the Brickyardover 80 mphand captured the famous Stevens Trophy. That record would stand until 1954. Make no mistake, these were fast cars, with power and flexibility that was as much ahead of its time as the Cords famous Gordon Buehrig styling.The four-passenger phaeton shown here is one of 688 factory-supercharged Cords built, and it retains its original FC engine, as verified by both the 810/812 chassis listing in Josh B. MalksCord Complete and its ACD Club Category One certification. It was acquired in 1967 by the late Gary Dubnoff, an enthusiast in northern California who had joined the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Club and inquired as to purchasing a car in the Clubs newsletter. Soon after, he purchased this 812, and it remained a favored possession for the remaining 46 years of his life.The Cord was beautifully restored some years ago, with great attention to authenticity and correctness throughout, including proper fittings, finishes, and wiring under the hood. The body is finished in Geneva Blue, a correct factory color, with the interior a wonderful contrast in bright red leather in the proper pattern and a tan canvas top overhead.Following the completion of the restoration, the car was an award winner at the ACD Clubs West Coast Meet in 1987. It was regularly maintained for decades and has continued to be well looked after in its present owners collection. This car is being offered to a new, good home, where it iscertain to continue to be a special point of pride, whether it is parked as a trophy in the garage or motoring down the road in true Art Deco fashion.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/ca18.
