AUBURN, Ind. _ The Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum will now feature a vintage sprint car. Built by Floyd “Pop” Dreyer, former Duesenberg employee, the car raced extensively throughout the Midwest from the 1930s until the 1950s. The Sprint Car has been restored into its original 1938 configuration. The car’s authenticity has been certified by the Antique Automobile Club of America.
Included in the restoration are the original body, narrow lightweight frame and rear tires. The body is 19 inches at its widest point. The engine produces 200 horsepower and has a top speed of approximately 125 MPH.
The car is on loan from James Kruse of Moorestown, N.J. It is located in the Terence E. Adderley Gallery of Racers & Record-Setters.
