Rare Auburn V12 cabriolet with celebrity provenance, namely James Cagney, who drove the car when it was new in the film, The Mayor of Hell. This is 1 of 4 Auburn V12 cabriolets built in 1934.From Seller:

This particular Auburn cabriolet was owned and driven by James Cagney in the 1933 film 'The Mayor of Hell.' It was restored to an extremely high standard by Auburn-Cord-Dusesenberg expert Brian Joseph in 1986, and received a Verification of Originality from the Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg Club at that time, which means it has its original chassis, engine, and drive-train. It is one of only four 1934 Auburn V12 Cabriolets built, and one of only two certified by the A-C-D. It has a full ownership history, and presents in outstanding driving and showing condition today.

The Salon model was Auburn's top-of-the-line. The Salons were powered by a 391 cubic-inch, 160 horsepower Lycoming V12 and equipped with a 3-speed manual transmission. They featured power hydraulic brakes, power driver-adjustable hydraulic brakes, and a unique and desirable dashboard-controlled Dual Ratio rear axle.

In two-and-a-half years of production, only about 2,250 V12 Auburns were produced in all six body styles, and survival has not been outstanding. At the last two ACD Festivals in Auburn, Indiana, there were only 24 V12s of all body styles, with only two 1933 and one 1934 V12 cabriolets among 214 cars judged. This is a VERY rare, high-quality piece.

The body on this car is done in the original colors of silver and black, with a black cloth top and black leather interior. The body and paint work, now nearly 23 years old, still looks very good today. This Auburn would be welcomed on any show field, and is absolutely ideal for CCCA Caravans and other tours that emphasize driving over simply showing the cars. The black panels are flat, smooth, and ripple-free, and the paint still has a deep, rich luster that some would call patina. The silver areas are crisply masked and there are no missteps in the paint anywhere. The high-quality enamel paint has been cut and buffed several times over the years, and that helps give it a timeless, original look that only accentuates its beauty. The fenders appear to be painted with Imron, which, if you're familiar with the material, is a super-hard paint used frequently on applications like this, as well as fire engines and other industrial equipment. It's incredibly durable, glossy, and beautiful, but also prone to cracks as it ages.

As a former 100-point show car, every aspect of the restoration was executed to the very highest of standards. There are a few signs of use and simple age here and there, but the car has been driven very little since 1987, and has always been transported in an enclosed trailer. When talking about a car of this caliber, there's no reason to even discuss repaints, body repairs or anything else like that—it's all flawless, perfect work done to the best standards of the time. This isn't a mass-produced car, it is the equivalent to the hand-built craftsmanship you might get from Rolls-Royce and Maybach today.

The chrome on the car is good throughout, particularly considering its age, from the massive, wave-free bumpers, to the delicate strips that are attached to each of the louvers on that long, long hood. There are gorgeous polished stainless inserts in the doors that brighten up the bodywork, and a dozen other little details that were done purely for art's sake on this car. Look at the lenses on the cowl lamps—not only is the glass etched, but the delicate etched grilles have been painted. Out back, the glass tail lamp lenses have the AUBURN name proudly embossed in them, with an amber '12' embedded inside that is visible when the lights are on. Look at the delicate arms that hold the side-view mirrors, pivoting to allow the doors to open. You could examine this car for a week and not see all the wonderful details. This is exactly why cars from this era are so special—the manufacturers were constantly trying to one-up each other with innovations, technology, and pure luxury for luxury's sake.

By 1932, Auburn needed something new to stimulate demand. The multi-cylinder wars of the early 1930s saw many companies struggling to keep up with changing technology—V12 and even V16 engines were becoming increasingly common among the ultra-luxury brands. Auburn answered this by adopting Lycoming's monstrous V12 engine, which featured a 45-degree vee configuration and twin Stromberg downdraft carburetors. The engine weighed 1,096 pounds, but its 160 horsepower matched the output of the larger Packard, Pierce-Arrow, and Franklin V12s, and easily bested the 135-hp and 125-hp Cadillac and Lincoln V12s.

Stan Gilliland, the A-C-D Club historian, who has been restoring Cords and Auburns for many years, believes the Auburns are highly underrated, considering their technology. Gilliland estimates the V12 engines may have put out as much as 200 hp. The engine on this car was rebuilt to factory standards at the time of restoration, and with only a few hundred miles on it, still runs flawlessly. The Auburn Green enamel on the engine is in excellent condition, the porcelainized intake and exhaust manifolds are still glossy black, and dig the giant 12-cylinder distributor. That cap alone cost $800 in 1987! The dual Stromberg carburetors—one for each bank of cylinders—are fed by an elegant cast aluminum air filter housing that is pure form following function. The original radiator was refreshed, and the big motor runs cool under all conditions. This is a car with a pedigree, designed for the most discriminating of buyers, and as such, there are no compromises in the engineering.

The engine fires with a turn of the key using an automatic starting system (literally, all you need to do to start the car is turn the ignition key to the ON position), then settles into a whispering 450 RPM idle. It exhales through a stainless dual exhaust system that features cut-outs actuated via a chrome knob on the floor in front of the driver ('Pull Up for High Speed Driving'). That long stroke V12 provides effortless torque that can accelerate the car from a standstill in top gear if necessary, and will run more than 100 MPH on the top end.

The engine is backed by a 3-speed manual transmission with synchromesh on 2nd and 3rd gears. Columbia Axle contributed a superb dual ratio rear axle with 4.54 low and 3.00 high ratios, allowing both great acceleration and low-RPM, high speed cruising. A switch on the dashboard controls the high and low ranges. Suspension is by solid axles front and rear, suspended by leaf springs encased in beautiful sliding covers to keep them lubricated and quiet. Four-wheel hydraulic brakes were included, with massive drums at each corner, and a driver-adjustable pressure control to vary the amount of power assist based on road conditions.

The dual ratio provides good acceleration and an overdrive for today's freeways. With less than 350 miles since the 1986 restoration, it still has a nicely detailed undercarriage. The 17-inch chrome wire wheels are in good condition with only slight pitting on the hubs, and the 7.00-17 Firestone wide whitewall tires look period authentic. The spare is an aged Bedford tire that some speculate might be the original spare tire based on its appearance, tread pattern, and condition.

The black leather interior is pure Art Deco elegance. The bench seat is wide and soft, and you sit behind an enormous black steering wheel that helps muscle this big car around corners in the semi-sporting manner for which it was designed. It features a comprehensive set of gauges, ranging from the 4000 RPM tachometer to the left of the steering column right above the brake adjustment knob, to the center-mounted cluster featuring a speedometer, ammeter, temperature gauge, clock, oil level, and gas gauge. Mounted front and center is the dual range control for the rear axle, while the vacuum wiper motor is mounted down low on the cowl and is chrome plated. The long, long shifter snakes up from the floor and is perfectly contoured to fit with the dashboard as you move it through the gates. Overhead, the canvas top is fitted over a chrome frame that was designed to be seen—it's like artwork. Even the rear view mirror is beveled glass, making the inside of this car a very elegant place to be. Behind the driver's compartment, a rumble seat pops out of the rear deck allowing space for two more passengers, while the rear window flap opens to allow conversation with back seat passengers whenever the top is up.

Documentation is extensive. According to the Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg Club documents, the car was previously owned by Warner Brothers and actor James Cagney from 1934-1941. During that time, it appeared in the Cagney movie 'The Mayor of Hell' (a copy of the movie is included with the car). It was then privately sold and ended up at the Cars of the Stars Museum from 1959-1976. Also according to the A.C.D. documents, it is a multiple award winner including First Place at the 1987 Meadowbrook Concours d'Elegance, First Place in the A.C.D. Auburn Open Category in 1987, and scored 100 points at the 1987 Dearborn CCCA Grand Classic. This is one of two 1934 Auburn V12 Salon Cabriolets certified by the A.C.D. (a certified Auburn is an automobile of the same make, model and body style as built by the factory before 1941). To qualify for certification, the chassis must consist of the original frame, engine, drive-train, and running gear components of the same model series. The body must be a verifiable original of the same model as the chassis. An appropriate amount of restoration using the original type of basic materials is acceptable. Cloning or replication is not acceptable. This 1934 Auburn 1250 Salon Cabriolet also appeared in the July, 2009 issue of 'Sports Car Market' Magazine.

SILVER ARROWS ON TARGET FOR A RECORD GATHERING AT THE 2009 GOODWOOD FESTIVAL OF SPEED

In just five weeks time, a record number of legendary pre-War ‘Silver Arrows’ German racers will gather at the Festival of Speed from 3-5 July as part of Goodwood’s celebrations to mark 75 years since the first appearance of the dominant Auto Union and Mercedes-Benz competition cars.

Recognising this important moment in motor racing history, Goodwood plans to gather together the largest collection of Silver Arrows racers ever seen in one location, with at least a dozen or more Auto Union and Mercedes-Benz cars scheduled to attend the 2009 Festival.

The Silver Arrows name (Silberpfeile in German) was adopted by the press as a mark of respect for the all-conquering Nazi-backed Auto Union and Mercedes-Benz Grand Prix cars that raced pre-War between 1934 and 1939. The Silver Arrows tag was also applied post-War to the Mercedes-Benz Formula One cars of 1954/55.

Famous Mercedes-Benz Silver Arrows racers due to appear at Goodwood will include the 1934 W25 and 1937 W125 – both to be driven by Jochen Mass – plus the 1939 W165 and 1954 W196, the latter with Sir Stirling Moss behind the wheel.

A number of Auto Unions will also be on hand, helping to form part of the Centenary celebrations of Audi, as well as 75 years of the Silver Arrows. Audi will be the main featured marque at this year’s Festival of Speed, with an imposing ‘Central Feature’ art installation directly outside Goodwood House. Auto Unions in attendance will include the 1934 Type A and 1938 Type D, the latter due to be driven by Le Mans legend Jacky Ickx and Pink Floyd’s drummer and huge motoring enthusiast Nick Mason.

In addition to the Silver Arrows Auto Unions, an impressive collection Audi’s other important motor racing moments will be honoured at the Festival. These will include the pioneering rallying Quattros of the 1980s, through to the latest Audi R10s that have dominated endurance sport car racing in recent years.

Entrance to the 2009 Goodwood Festival of Speed is by advance ticket only. Please contact the Ticket Hotline by:

FLEXFUEL CHEVY HOT ROD DEMONSTRATES VINTAGE STYLE AND MODERN ALTERNATIVE-FUEL PERFORMANCE

With a 500-horsepower engine, a channeled body and a chopped top, GM's custom street rod looks right at home on the salt flats of Bonneville. But instead of a traditional gasoline V-8, this '34 Chevy replica rod sports a turbocharged 2.0L Ecotec engine that runs on E85 ethanol. Appropriately, it has been dubbed the FlexFuel Chevy Hot Rod.

'Since the 1930's, hot rods have embodied American ingenuity, aesthetic flair and the quest for performance,' said Bryan Nesbitt, vice-president of General Motors North American Design. 'The ethanol Hot Rod is a modern statement that today's hot rodder can address energy concerns about the consumption of petroleum without sacrificing performance or style.'

The car's low-slung stance and stripped-down essence suggests track cars and speed racers of the late 1940s and early 1950s. Open hood sides reveal the high-powered Ecotec engine, which has been pumped up with the help of GM Performance Parts' Stage III performance kit and a larger turbo. The higher octane of E85 enabled engineers to tune the engine for more power. It is backed by a GM Powertrain 5L40 five-speed automatic transmission.

'The engine was built using the basic recipe that is available in the Ecotec performance book available from GM Performance Parts,' said Al Oppenheiser, GM Performance Division director of concept and vehicle integration. 'Also, the E85 conversion is based on a kit that GM is exploring for regular production engines.'

True hot rod aesthetic

Like hot rods built for the last 60 years, the FlexFuel Hot Rod is built from an assemblage of factory and aftermarket parts. The frame and body are based on the 1934 Chevy, but both were fabricated by the craftsmen at the GM Performance Division (GMPD). The body has been sectioned and channeled to give the car its true hot rod aesthetic, while the frame is a one-off piece designed, engineered and built by GMPD. The slanted grille – with a unique chrome mesh pattern – and hood are integrated for a smoother look, which includes a sun visor characteristic of period hot rod racers.

Like any good rod worth its salt, there are no fenders or running boards; the 10-inch headlamps are mounted to the core support. The front suspension is all custom-built, complete with period-perfect lightening holes drilled in it.

A sturdy 8-3/8-inch Winters Quick-change rearend is suspended by a parallel four-link suspension. It is filled with 5.20 gears, which are used to generate brisk acceleration with 35-inch-tall, racing-type Excelsior rear tires and 29-inch-tall front tires. The tires are mounted on custom 18-inch front and 20-inch rear 'kidney bean'-style wheels from Budnik.

Steering comes from a custom-fabricated linkage that is connected to a reversed Corvair steering box. The linkage is mounted to the outside of the frame rail.

Hand-crafted cabin

Inside, the FlexFuel Hot Rod maintains its racing-inspired minimalist theme, but with contemporary feel. Hand-formed sheet metal and earth-friendly materials were used to trim the cabin, as well as the racing-style aluminum seats. The dashboard was hand-finished, too, and filled with traditional-looking Stewart-Warner gauges.

One of the interior's central points of interest is the racing-style driveshaft tube, which covers the custom driveshaft. It is a prominent fixture in the cabin because the body has been lowered around the chassis to achieve the streamlined appearance that was characteristic of old-school hot rods.

Road ready

More than just a conceptualized vision of an alternative-fuel street rod, the FlexFuel Hot Rod is a driver that GM Performance Division will press into service for a number of road events and tests.

'This thing is going to rack up a lot of miles,' said Oppenheiser. 'With the FlexFuel conversion, it can run purely on E85, gasoline or any combination of the two. That means it can be refueled anywhere the road takes it.'

New development: Driver's side rear axle snapped (during test drive - of course!) New parts have been secured and car should be put togerther within days but it is not drivable at this moment.

I bought this car from a family in Kansas in the spring of 2004. They had owned it since new and it had been grandpa’s car. It had been kept in storage and had last run in the early 1990’s. I bought it rather impulsively over Ebay and I was attracted by the original nature of the car. It was tired, but all there with no rust anywhere.

I had it shipped out and when it arrived it was clear there was a lot to be done. It was a black car and while I prefer to stay original, I couldn’t live with this color so I decided to have it painted light grey. We matched one of six original color choices for 1934 using original paint samples.

The mechanical aspects of the car were simpler to deal with. The car had only 33,000 original miles and it had always been well-maintained. Nonetheless, we took apart everything that moved and rebuilt it all. We replaced the wiring harness, rebuilt the gas tank, added all new lines to everything, brakes, bushings etc. We did add an electrical fuel pump and a system wide master electrical shut off for safety and efficiency.

We replaced all glass with new vintage-style glass, rebuilt all window mechanisms and replaced all the rubber everywhere.

The real effort came with the interior. When I bought the car, I discovered the interior had been redone somewhere along the line. It was just OK and not up to my standard. I tracked down seat fabric that another Airflow Club member had made as well as the correct carpet material from Hirsch. The challenges were to find the correct insert fabric for the door details as well as the proper oil-cloth for the head liner.

Eventually I hired Doug Friedman, a well-known interior specialist in Ventura CA to finish up the car for me. Doug worked full time for four months and got it done. He is a real perfectionist and before long, I had agreed to redo all the chrome and essentially make the car new. By the time he was finished, I had spent over $94,000 (including purchase- all documented). I know I over-paid originally ($19,000) in my over-zealous bidding but the real issue was the incremental thing that happens in a restoration when one wants to “do it right”.

The bottom line, the car looks like new and runs beautifully.

This 1934 Chrysler CA four door sedan is all original and has never been restored. The interior is in pristine condition. The upholstery is original and was under plastic since new until a few years ago. It was painted approximately 60 years ago. The car has had only four owners in its entire history. This car was always stored in a heated garage since new and has never been in an accident. The car belonged to its first owner from 1934 to 1962 and was first licensed in Washington, State. The car was imported into Canada in 1976 and has been owned by the seller since 1977. The six cylinder engine has been re-built by its current owner. All numbers are matching. The car runs and drives nice with a new set of Firestone wide white wall tires. The car comes with all the original documentation from the first owner to the current owner such as owner's manual, service manuals, service records as well as hand written notes from the first owners wife telling the story on how the car was cared for. This vehicle is a collectors dream as it does not need to be restored. I am listing this vehicle for the owner who can reach for further information by calling Gerry at****.

One of only 10 JN models ever produced, and one of only three convertible sedans. This one is a Duesy.From Seller:

Only ten JN models were manufactured, and they all carried bodies built by Rollston of New York. Of those ten, only three JNs were convertible sedans, and convertible sedan J-570 is unique among all of them as the most original, authentic, complete example. With a sleek, stylish body with tidy proportions on the shortened J chassis, it gives the appearance of a coupe more than a sedan, yet has the convenience of four doors. Purchased new on September 2, 1936 by William H. Dunning of Ft. Worth Texas, president of Sequoia Oil Company. Uncommon in even the rarefied atmosphere of Duesenberg collecting, J-570 remains in original configuration, with its original body, chassis, and engine, most likely due to thoughtful stewardship throughout its life, as well as the unusual and jaw-droppingly gorgeous bodywork for which there is no possible upgrade.

Restored several years ago to concours standards by noted Duesenberg expert Randy Ema, this car made the show car circuit and won every possible award a car can win at the highest levels. Refinished in highly appealing dark red paint, with a red leather interior and tan canvas top, it remains in spectacular condition today, and as with all Duesenbergs, has a presence that can't be matched by many other vehicles. It is massive, yes, but also elegant, well-proportioned, and sleek, which easily mask its great size. Originally black with a tan top and interior, the current color combination is both elegant and eye-catching, and gives this coach built car a sporty flair. With more than a million dollars spent on the restoration by the Imperial Palace Auto Collection, the finish work is above reproach in every way, with absolutely no signs of sub-standard workmanship anywhere. There is no filler in a car of this caliber, no non-authentic materials used, and the paint is deeper and more lustrous than anything you've seen before. As a hand-built automobile, Rollston's craftsmen were expected to deliver near-perfection, and the restoration only served to correct any remaining flaws—if there were any. The doors open and close with precision (note the wonderfully intricate door hinges), the top fits beautifully and seals up snugly, and all four windows roll up and down easily.

Classics of this era are renowned for their attention to detail, and J-570 doesn't disappoint with its wonderful design elements. From the famous stylized Duesenberg 'bird' hood ornament, to the upright Duesenberg grille, to the slender and well-proportioned bumpers, the chrome on this car is excellent. Other unique details include the smaller JN style taillights, the polished aluminum trunk rack, and the unique Duesenberg exhaust, which siameses the dual exhaust pipes together into one stylish tip. The JN continued to use chrome wire wheels when other manufacturers were moving to steel discs and artillery style wheels, and they lend a sporty attitude to the car, accentuating it's long lines. Dual side mounts feature chrome trim bands, while polished rub strips protect the running boards.

The heart of J-570 remains its original 420 cubic inch DOHC straight-8 power plant. A massive casting, the engine itself weighs somewhat north of 1000 pounds and might look more at home powering a tractor trailer. A symphony of Duesenberg green paint and polished aluminum castings, there's clear indication that Fred and Augie Duesenberg, E.L. Cord and the engineers at Lycoming knew that they were building something very, very special. The polished intake manifold is topped by a Stromberg carburetor that has been painted to match the engine. Air filters remained options on many cars of the period, but the Duesenberg came with a standard cast aluminum filter unit with a washable, reusable oil bath element. Polished aluminum covers hide the twin chain-driven camshafts. On the exhaust side, dual manifolds feature individual exhaust pipes that feed the dual exhaust system—necessary thanks to the Duesenberg's advanced cross-flow cylinder head with 32 valves. The polished stainless steel firewall (this car's original piece, by the way) houses items like the Bijur system, which will automatically lubricate several dozen points throughout the chassis every 60 miles or so. Fully detailed and ready for show, no Duesenberg should ever be displayed with its hood closed.

The shortened chassis used in the JN cars mean that there are no numbers stamped into the frame rails as with other J models, but there's no question that this is the car's original frame, thanks to extensive documentation. In addition, J-570 carries its original 3-speed manual transmission, again somewhat of a rarity among Duesenbergs, which have often had components swapped among them, or replaced entirely as using a 4-speed transmission from a truck was a common replacement for damaged Duesenberg gearboxes. From their years of racing experience, the Duesenbreg brothers used hydraulic brakes from the beginning, with massive drums at all four corners and an emergency brake acting on the driveshaft. Front and rear axles are suspended on semi-elliptic leaf springs, a part of the design that E.L. Cord just couldn't modify and which caused many detractors to refer to the Duesenberg as 'the world's fastest trucks.' Nevertheless, the construction is robust, with a frame strong enough to support a railroad bridge, and axles that are virtually immune to road damage and wear. The comprehensive restoration returned every component and system to as-new condition, and the subsequent years of gentle use have resulted in a reliable, mechanically top-notch Duesenberg that can be toured with pride and is ready to go on a moment's notice.

Like the chassis components, the interior draws heavy influence from racing, with a comprehensive array of gauges in a machine-turned dashboard. Of course, luxury was the name of the game, and there are few other cars that can compete with a Rollston interior. The supple red leather is simply beautiful to look at, and impossible to resist touching. Accurately duplicating the original patterns, the tufted seats show virtually no wear, and along with the beautifully finished matching red leather door panels, make this an incredibly inviting place to be. As I mentioned, the dash is full of gauges, ranging from a large, prominent tachometer, to an altimeter, to a brake pressure gauge, to all the standard gauges such as oil pressure, coolant temperature, fuel level, and speed. There's also a beautifully designed clock that matches the rest of the instruments. Handles and other hardware are expertly restored and have lost none of their crisp detailing during the re-chroming process. Ahead of the steering wheel, you'll find the controls for the adjustable braking system, with settings for Dry, Rain, Snow, and Ice, which allow the driver to fine-tune the brakes to road conditions. You'll also find the traditional Duesenberg shifter, which takes a few bends to clear the dashboard in reverse and second gear. Windowsills are gorgeous wood that has been varnished and polished until they glow. The back seat is nicely appointed, with matching red leather and dark red carpets underfoot, as well as a stylish art-deco clock front and center on the rear of the front seat back. The tan canvas top is without blemishes and fits beautifully. It folds easily and makes a tidy stack behind the back seat that is housed in a matching tan canvas boot. Every seam is straight, every button's placement exact, and the detailing is simply too nice to convey in photographs. It's no wonder that cars like this are often considered art instead of mere transportation.

Documentation is, as you might imagine, extensive. Ownership history is documented from new, and previous owners include the Imperial Palace and the Blackhawk Collection. We also have receipts for major recent servicing to get the car into top-notch condition, both cosmetically and mechanically. We also have a reprint of the MoToR article on the new Duesenberg 8, printed when the car was new and describing all the features of the car.

There's just no question that a Duesenberg is about as good as it gets in the collector car hobby. They combine everything that creates value and desirability in a car—power, style, history, and luxury—and with fewer than 475 being built, there certainly aren't enough to go around. Add in 100% original components, including engine, chassis, and body, and a top-flight restoration by one of the best in the business, and you have a truly blue-chip investment. This is a car for top-flight collectors, a thoroughbred that is invited to all the big events, and the centerpiece of any collection, big or small. As we in the business are fond of saying, this is a no-excuses car that fully lives up to its billing.

SEMA '09: '34 FORD HOT ROD 'REPLACES DISPLACEMENT' IN FAVOR OF 400-HP 3.5L TWIN-TURBO ECOBOOST V-6

Ford Powertrain, Detroit Street Rods and Experi-metal team up to showcase classic '34 Ford 3-Window Coupe hot rod boasting 'first' rear-wheel-drive application of EcoBoost™ V-6

The first production rear-wheel-drive 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 model launches next year in the Ford F-150, followed by a 2.0-liter I-4 in 2011 for the Falcon in Australia

Dan Kapp, director of Ford Powertrain Research and Advanced Engineering, joins SEMA's 'Driving Green' technology briefing on Tuesday, Nov. 3 to discuss the subject of green performance and EcoBoost's potential as the 'replacement for displacement'

DEARBORN, Mich., Oct. 28, 2009 – Hot rodders have always lived by the motto 'There's no replacement for displacement,' indicating that the more cubic inches an engine has, the better the resulting performance. Ford Powertrain and Detroit Street Rods are out to prove that thinking out-of-date with their EcoBoost™-powered '34 Ford hot rod.

To be introduced at this year's Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show, the Ford hot rod will be the 'first' rear-wheel-drive application of the 3.5-liter twin-turbo EcoBoost V-6 delivering an estimated 400 horsepower and 400 ft.-lb. of torque – power numbers that easily rival a typical hot rod's 302-cubic-inch V-8 or even a modern-day V-8 of similar size.

'EcoBoost technology shows that there is a viable replacement for displacement,' said Dan Kapp, director of Ford Powertrain Research and Advanced Engineering, who will be part of a SEMA 'Driving Green' technology briefing panel discussion during the show. 'As consumers' demand for fuel efficiency continues to grow, and our commitment to delivering best-in-class fuel economy remains steadfast, it's important to show that performance does not need to suffer as a result.'

'Hot rod builds provide blank canvases for SEMA member companies and SEMA is uniquely positioned to demonstrate that horsepower and green power can coexist without sacrificing performance or the cool factor,' said John Waraniak, SEMA vice president of Vehicle Technology. 'This '34 EcoBoost hot rod is a fantastic example of modern green technology being applied in a manner that any performance enthusiast would love.'

The EcoBoost family of engines uses turbocharging and direct injection technology to deliver up to 20 percent better fuel economy and up to 15 percent fewer CO2 emissions versus larger-displacement engines.

'The beauty of EcoBoost is that it enables us to downsize for fuel efficiency, yet boost for power,' said Kapp. 'We're able to decrease the size of the available engine – such as installing a V-6 versus a V-8 – yet boost the power using turbocharging to deliver similar power and torque to that larger engine.'

The first EcoBoost engine, a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V-6, launched this year on the 2010 Ford Taurus SHO and Flex and on the Lincoln MKS and Lincoln MKT. The EcoBoost V-6 produces 355 horsepower (365 hp in the Taurus SHO) and 350 ft.-lb. of torque.

Ford has recently announced the first four-cylinder EcoBoost engines, launching in global applications beginning next year. The 1.6-liter EcoBoost I-4 first arrives in Europe, followed by the 2.0-liter EcoBoost I-4 launching on products in both Europe and North America.

Going forward, Ford will shift its powertrain strategy to be built around EcoBoost technology. Under the new system:

A 3.5-liter EcoBoost V-6 would replace naturally aspirated V-8 engines

A 2.0-liter EcoBoost I-4 would replace naturally aspirated V-6 engines

A 1.6-liter EcoBoost I-4 would replace naturally aspirated large I-4 engines

Following the launches of the new EcoBoost I-4s will be the extension of the 3.5-liter V-6 to the first rear-wheel-drive configuration in the F-150 pickup truck late next year. Another global application, the Ford Falcon sedan in Australia, will receive a rear-wheel-drive version of the 2.0-liter EcoBoost I-4 in 2011.

The fun-to-drive nature of EcoBoost engines is leading Ford to introduce these fuel-saving powertrains in large volumes virtually across its lineup. For example, by 2013 more than 90 percent of Ford's North American lineup will be available with EcoBoost technology, and nearly 80 percent of Ford's global nameplates will have an available EcoBoost option.

By 2013, global EcoBoost volume throughout the Ford, Lincoln and Mercury vehicle family is expected to be 1.3 million units, with up to 750,000 sales coming from North America alone.

'34 Ford EcoBoost hot rod project

Detroit Street Rods' latest build is a 1934 Ford and is a joint venture with Ford Motor Company and Experi-metal. In this '34 application, the EcoBoost engine is configured for rear-wheel drive and is coupled with a Tremec five-speed manual transmission.

'The decision to use the EcoBoost engine for our powertrain on this project was an easy one in that it gave us the opportunity to combine the iconic '34 Ford sculpted body lines with the advanced technology of the EcoBoost powerplant,' stated Robert Smith, president of Detroit Street Rods. 'The result is the perfect hot rod marriage of advanced technology for power and legendary automobile design.'

While the stock Honeywell turbochargers that drive the EcoBoost engine are used, they were repackaged to fit the engine bay of this all-steel replica body. The engine configuration and turbocharger packaging was dynamometer tested by Ford Powertrain for proper calibration of the engine electronic control module (ECM). In addition to the all-stock engine, other components including the fuel pump, ECM, fuel pump module, fuel pump processor and drive-by-wire throttle were utilized in their original production configuration.

The body is from Steve's Auto Restoration and is the recently released 1934 Ford 3-Window coupe. The complete body and fenders are from brand-new tooling, and are designed, stamped and manufactured by Experi-metal in Sterling Heights, Mich. This 'replica' '34 features all-steel construction, full fenders, running boards, electronic power windows, air conditioning and custom bumpers.

The engine was repackaged and fitted with an engine plate adapter to mate with an aluminum flywheel, performance clutch and a Tremec TKO five-speed transmission. The turbochargers were repositioned to the front of the cylinder heads and custom aluminum tubing was used to route the air from the custom air cleaner through the air-to-air intercooler. The exhaust gases are routed from the cylinder heads through coated headers, through the stock wastegates, and pass through large custom exhaust cones located outside the engine bay and just above the front fenders.

Original Henry Ford Steel Un-Chopped 1934 Ford 3 Window

The frame is an original un-cut original 1934 Ford frame, the only modifications on it are the motor mounts.

The motor is a fully rebuilt Cadillac 331 V-8 that came out of an old 40 Lincoln hot rod, with Caddy valve covers, valley pan and fuel pump, that have the original chrome. The motor has an Isky cam in it, a Joe Hunt electronic magneto distributor, and an original Offenhauser 3x2 intake with three 97 Stromberg’s on it.

Transmission is an early Ford three-speed case with a double detent top and original Zephyr gears.

Rear end is a ’36 Ford banjo with 3.25:1 ring and pinion.

The front axle is an original Dago dropped ‘32 with original un-split ‘34 wishbones and '36 spindles.

The car runs on two front 16†dia, 4†wide 1940 Ford steelies and two 16†dia, 4.5†wide rear Ford truck steelies. All four steel wheels are straightened and trued and all four Coker bias ply tires were shaved.

The coupe stops on a dime with front and rear original Lincoln brakes using front Buick finned aluminum drums and original Ford rear drums.

The seat is cream white tuck and roll with gold piping to make this car entirely period correct.

Radiator and grill are original ‘34.

Old chrome BLC headlights and the rear taillights, I believe are from a Willys.

‘48 Lincoln steering wheel and F1 Ford steering box is F1 Ford

Stewart Warner for most of the gauges

This ‘34 has been featured in the Traditional Rod and Kulture magazine issue #24, and featured in the book East vs. West Showdown.

Suede Palace Trophy winner for the GNRS 2013.

It has also been in two recent photo shoots with Tim Sutton (photographer for Rod and Custom and others) and Marc Wöltinger (photographer and author of Lowtech). This is a traditional built Ford ‘34 Three Window using only ORIGINAL hot rod parts hand built the way that someone would had done it 60 years ago.

CHRIS'S COMMENTS

$9.4k is might be a tad low. $11k fair. Clean car in boring beige and brown. RHD. Small following in the states for these cars, but a solid piece of history. With 8 hp, not terribly exciting. Presentation was anemic, no documentation.

OWNER'S COMMENTS

You are bidding on a 1934 English Ford '8' that is originally from New Zealand. This car has only had 3 previous owners and is a very original car! It was completely restored in the early ‘90s, using original and NOS parts. I have looked it over from top to bottom and can find NO RUST nor rust repair anywhere! The running boards, fenders, floor pans, sills, pillars, frame, outriggers, firewall, and battery box are all excellent, both top and bottom. The beadwork on the fender edges is as near to perfect as I've ever seen, with no breaks, welds, or dents anywhere. The bonnet (hood) has no ripples or indentations, and is smooth as glass. Shut lines for the doors and hood all have the correct spacing. Even the rubber coverings for the running boards are mint NOS additions when the car was restored, and would probably be almost impossible to find now. The car has NEVER been in an accident. The interior is like new, including the headliner. All the original gauges and buttons on the dash are the ones that came with the car when new. There are no extra holes drilled in the dash. The doors have no sagging when opened, and when they are closed, they make a distinctive, rattle-free 'thud'! There are no 'impossible-to-find' pieces missing from this car. All the exterior and interior chrome trim, handles, etc, are there and are the original ones that came with the car when new. The steering wheel is also original. The front windscreen folds out by cranking the handle on the dash, and works like new. The engine is the original one that came with the car when new, and was also professionally rebuilt in New Zealand in the ‘90s. It runs and starts good, drives well, and is very reliable. The chrome is all there and in very good condition, as are all the badges. I could not find any pitting anywhere in the chrome trim pieces. The radiator shell is in PERFECT condition with no dings, dents, or warping. The radiator is the original one that came with the car when new, and is in excellent condition. The headlights are also the original ones that came with the car when new. The paint is still in very good condition except on the right side of the bonnet where it is flaking off in some areas. Some of the tools are still there. This car is ready to drive and enjoy! I have never even seen one of these rare, early English Fords for sale....let alone in this condition! I would like payment in full within a week of the end of the auction, and the car will be released to buyer after the check clears. Georgia does not issue Titles for cars over 15 years old, but I have all the necessary paperwork to Title the car in any state that requires one.CHRIS'S COMMENTS
