Picture Gallery created the topic: 1937 CORD 812 S/C ENGINE
Now on display in the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum. Restored by Charlie Saganek with some help from George Arakelian.

WARNING!

From Elliott Andrews:

There are some problems with these photos. Unfortunately, the transmission vacuum lines are made and installed incorrectly! The cross-shifter lines are reversed, and the solenoid engine vacuum and vent are also reversed. If anyone uses the pictures as a reference for plumbing their transmission the trans will not shift.

From ADMIN:

We will repost photos of the corrected engine as soon as it is fixed.

Don't know where the information came from, but George Arakelian had no part in this great looking drive train. Charlie takes all the credit and it belongs to him.

That is very, very nice.

HOWEVER:
To the nice folks at the ACD Automobile Museum: When giving credit to someone on a poster, it's usually a good idea to spell their name correctly.

HI,

I don't mean to be an ignorant wretch, but is that a front-wheel drive arrangement? I am currently building a 3D model of the 1936 Auburn Boat tail Speedster.

However these images are the closest I have come to finding a viable engine of that era. However, I though the speedsters were rear-wheel driven cars.

I guess I am looking to pick the brains of some real experts here, as most of the images out there are of replicas with modern frames and engines.

I guess I do not have to build the model's engine, as I could just show it from the outside, but I would like to be able to open the hood and how it off.

Any help you folks might be able to provide is really appreciated! and I will post images of my model here as she comes alive!

Cheers,
