Gateway Classic Cars of Orlando is proud to present this 1931 Auburn Model 8-98-A. This beautiful car is an eye catcher and would look great in your collection. Auburn is a big name in the car collector world. The design is breathtaking and the history on this car even more so. A real Gatsby era car designed by Allen H Leamy, Body # C26 936 VIN 15627 M The well-known Mae West car has extensive documentation back to 1931. The... â€˜31 Auburn was restored by its current owner to an original type look, with a few resto-mod changes. His goal was to have her appearing as she would have back in the day but be mechanically functional for modern times.
Mae Westâ€™s 1931 Auburn 8-98-A was a factory custom ordered vehicle (fitting for someone with such celebrity and financial resources). The original body is still nailed to the wooden framework underneath, and the car still utilizes the original chassis. The restored interior features a painted wood grained dash just like the original and houses the original instruments which have been converted to 12 volts. To duplicate the original upholstery he utilized chestnut leather, using the original seat patterns, along with a leather headliner and alligator hide door panels like were custom chosen by Mae West. Updates that have been done to the car for drivability and safety include a custom-built front suspension using Jaguar upper and lower control arms on the factory chassis, power steering, and power front disc brakes with drums in the rear. Under the hood now resides a 1970 Cadillac 500 cubic inch motor that has a Painless 12-volt electrical system, mated to a Turbo 400 automatic transmission, with a 10-bolt GM rear end housing 3.56:1 gears rounding out the running gear. The factory Auburn radiator was retained, and three electric cooling fans added for all the parade duty she serves.
The exterior was kept stock looking as well and has been restored to the original special ordered colors of yellow with light green highlights and teal pinstriping on the raised body panels like Mae West chose herself at the time of production. For safety a set of Kelsey Hayes wire wheels with chrome spokes and wide whitewall Coker tires are now utilized but retain that resto-mod look. The steamer trunk on the back of the car is the original one Mae West used, and is still fitted with her luggage!
