Good day, thanks to you all who have taken the time to reach out to me so far. We have our eyes on a Glenn Pray '73 generation 2 and I wanted to confirm a few points so I know it is actually that and not another replica make.

The things I believe I can check to help confirm it would include:
1) the gas cap is on the drivers side
2) there are only 4 exhaust pipes, 2 per side and they are functional, not cosmetic
3) they all used a Ford v8 motor of the same era.

Is there anything else I could look for to confirm? Stamps or paperwork I should ask for or review?

Dear Sir: The first thing I would do is contact Felix DeGeyter at Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. For years he was Glenn Pray's right hand man and is very well informed on Auburn replicars. His E-mail is This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and his cell phone is Area 918/812-4070. Good luck with your search.

I'm looking at a number of replicas which are for sale right now.
One thing I have yet to find is a replica which has the supercharger pipes on the driver's side only - all have either two, three, or four pipes on both driver and passenger sides. And I believe only the Glenn Pray models have functional pipes.

I was told the original Auburn speedster had the gas cap on the passenger side, but the GP has it on the driver's side.

Then there convertible tops which are completely removed, as well as some which are attached to the body and fold away. Driving lights and fog lights differ in size and shape as well.
