1935 Auburn Speedster
designed by Gordon Buehrig
Gordon Miller Buehrig (June 18, 1904 - January 22, 1990) was a noted automobile designer. Born in Mason City, Illinois, he had early design experience with Packard, General Motors and Stutz. At age 25 he became chief body designer for Duesenberg, where he designed the Model J line of luxury cars. He joined the Auburn Automobile Company in 1934, producing distinctive designs for the Auburn Speedster and the 810/812 Cord, the latter recognized for its originality by the Museum of Modern Art in 1951.
Retiring from Ford in 1965, Buehrig taught for five years at the Art Center College of Design in California. In 1979, he produced the design for the Buehrig Motor Car, a limited-production carriage roof coupe.
