1/25 72324 Lindberg Auburn 1935 Supercharged 851 Boattail Speedster (Ex-Pyro)
Plastic Model Kit, Box Condition: Sealed NM
Still factory sealed. 2000 issue. 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. Very nicely molded kit from old Pyro molds. Molded in white, clear and chromed plastic with real rubber tires. Features detailed engine, hinging/opening hood and good interior detail.
