Original Auburn 851 seat design was created by AuburnNut
I have a photo of a seat from an Auburn and I’m trying to determine if it is an original accurate pattern. There are thirteen strips of leather that appear to be the equal size. The next question concerns the large flat panels on both the base and back seat sections....are they in the correct location - that is, a bit less than half way from the edge of the panel. I’m currently building a seat with my upholsterer and I’d like to recreate a seat as close as possible. Many thanks Jerome

I should have also said that it is for an Auburn 851 speedster replica that I’m restoring.

I don’t know who Stan is I’m afraid. I’m also hoping that the questions I have posed are pretty simple for a knowledgeable person on these models to answer.

I should also note that I am an ACD club member. For some reason my login does not show me as a member. If anybody can tell me who to contact to correct that, it would be greatly appreciated.

Stan is a Auburn / Cord parts supplier in Wellington Kansas. Be mindful that there were over 20 different makers of reproduction speedsters. I'll go on record saying there are no two alike. Some are much more true to the originals than others. In my opinion, the early speedsters produced by Glen Pray are the ones to have.

The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.
