812 Speedster? was created by Rileypu29
I was on a spring break trip to Laughlin, Nevada and saw this car in Don Laughlin's Riverside Casino car museum. It looks to be an 812 front end grafted to a boat tail cabin and back end. According to the curator of the museum the car has the front drive and Lycoming V8 with the supercharger. The instrument panel looks to be from a sedan as it has the holes for the windshield cranks. There was also a very nice Hollywood Graham on display. I highly recommend this museum, a very nice assortment of about 50 cars, the curator Bud was great to talk with and the entry fee is $2. Enjoy!

With that bright red paint it sure is an attention getter.
I have seen pictures of a Corburn that was built in South Africa however it had the Buehrig Auburn Speedster body with a Cord front end. I believe that is has subsequently been restored back to a complete Auburn Speedster. It is amazing what people can dream up and put together.
Found a couple of pictures on the Internet.

Funny how two great designs cannot be grafted together and still get a great outcome.

However, I like the Graham.

Rear fenders on Red car way out of proportion. Gordon would not be happy.
