This Auburn Eight Supercharged Speedsters one of about 150 authentic speedster produced. It was once owned by Ted Billing, and later hidden away for many years in the Connecticut collection of David Tunick, before its sale in 2005 to James Foght of Illinois. Mr. Foght brought the car to the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Club, which certified it as a Category One Original Car, noting that it retained its original body, frame, engine, and the original serial number tag on the firewall. It was owned by a well-known European collector of performance automobiles, before finding its way into its current American ownership several years ago.

The Speedster has been fully restored and was shown at Pebble Beach and Villa d'Este. The current owner had the complete drivetrain, including the engine and its ancillaries, rebuilt by his own expert restorer, and the body restored, including new upholstery, top, and paintwork over a body correctly stripped to bare metal. Over the past two years, nearly $200,000 was spent on the three year restoration. Since that time, it has earned Best of Show at Kiawah Island in 2016; Best in Class at Pinehurst (2016), Boca Raton (2016), Santa Fe, and the Art of the Car Concours (2016), and most recently the Concours d'Elegance of Texas (2017); and the Garage Style Magazine Award at the San Marino Motor Classic (2016), in addition to numerous other awards all over the country. It also scored 99.5 points at the Classic Car Club of America Grand Classic in 2016.
