While many magnificent automobiles rolled out of the famed Auburn in Indiana prior, their true icon would come in late 1934. Penned by Gordon Buehrig, the young designer who had mastered designs for Stutz and Duesenberg, the 851 Boattail Speedster could be considered his masterpiece. An art deco influenced, streamlined Speedster, this exceptional automobile was powered by a supercharged Lycoming eight-cylinder engine, offered staggering 150 HP performance for its day, and the standard Columbia dual ratio rear axle added a whole new dimension to its drivability- speed. The 851 Speedster was the first stock American car to exceed 100 MPH for twelve hours. In fact, all 851 Boattail Speedsters were guaranteed to exceed 100 MPH in stock form. Its performance was astonishing, but the car is remembered today for its styling; it is undeniably one of the most striking and unforgettable designs of the 1930s.

Liberty’s car is currently going through a full restoration and is at the upholstery stage.
