1/25 C331-98 Pyro Auburn 1935 851 Boattail Speedster Supercharged
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: VG
Likely the third issue of the only injection-molded larger scale Auburn kit. The '35 Auburn weighed 4200 lbs. and was one of the few cars of that time to have hydraulic brakes. Power came from a 150hp (@4000) supercharged engine with three inch exhaust pipes that easily sped the car to over 100 mph. Ab Jenkins set a record with a stock issue 851 at Bonneville Salt Flats in July of 1935, and became the first one to pilot a stock car for over 12 hours at an average of over 100 mph. Molded in red. Features detailed engine, hinging/opening hood and good interior detail. The kit has never been started. Inventoried 100% complete including all parts and instructions.
