The documentary chronicles the story of Glenn Pray, president and owner of Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg Company. In 1960 he dared to do what others, including Preston Tucker, had attempted -- to build and sell a new type of automobile. Not only did he do it once; he did it again and again. First he introduced a modern version of the Cord automobile; then he introduced a modern version of the Auburn Speedster.

Glenn Pray, President of the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Company, refers to his 866 Speedsters as Second Generation Cars or Auburn Continuations. Glenn states that his cars were never meant to be Replica's of the originals. His cars are modern day versions of the original Auburn Speedster. Luxuries such as power steering, power brakes, air conditioning and modern V8 drive trains with independent suspensions were not available on the original cars, but they were on his cars. Since Glenn has owned the original Auburn Cord Duesenberg Company (ACD Co.) since 1960 I would have to agree with his line of thinking.

These new players were soon offering their versions of Glenn Pray's Auburn.

The ACD Co. would continue to operate in this manor until an Oklahoma industrial arts teacher and Cord restorer, by the name of Glenn Pray, offered to buy the ACD Co. With financial help from friend Wayne McKinley, Glenn would eventually strike a deal with Dallas Winslow.
...
According to Glenn Pray's estimate, he thinks that they transported 700,000 pounds of parts. Glenn Pray had actually purchased much more than just parts. He now controlled the trademark names, Auburn, Cord and Duesenberg.
Once the ACD Co. was moved to Oklahoma and set up, it began offering parts and restoration work again. It was not long after the move that Mr. Pray had thoughts of putting the 1936-1937 Cord back into production. He did just that... A newly engineered front wheel drive Modern Cord 8/10 was available from the ACD Co. in 1964. Gordon Buehrig, the cars original designer, worked with Glenn on the design of the new 8/10 Cord (8/10 meaning eight tenths the size of the original Cord).
...
Glenn Pray ended Auburn production in 1981 due to health reasons. There were only 18 of these car fantastic cars produced. The 874 Phaeton's sold in the $45,000 to $60,000 range.
Glenn Pray still offers parts and restoration services from his Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg Co. I was last there in 2005 for Glenn's Annual Open house, usually held in May or June. All ACD cars are welcome, regardless of their original manufacturer. Glenn Pray is a great host.
...
There are always interesting restoration projects in Glenn's shop along with a lot of great stories.

We also met Glenn Pray, then and currently President of the ACD Company. Naturally I had to ask them to pose with me for a couple of photo's of which I still proudly posses. Glenn was driving one of his New 874 Dual Cowl Auburns.

Glenn was the Grand Marshal for this years Parade of Classics. Glenn drove in the 1st Parade of Classics back in 1956. He was wheeling around in his 1937 Cord Phaeton, he was 28 years old at the time. Glenn said that he has attended over 40 ACD club reunions. This year Glenn brought his Yellow Dual Cowl 874 Auburn. His car is the last 874 built; number 18 of 18. I think it was befitting to ask Glenn to be the Grand Marshal for the Clubs 50th event. Glenn is certainly responsible for saving many cars and supplying the parts for many of the 75-100 year old cars that were attending this year's event. Automobile Quarterly will be releasing a book with Glenn Prays' story later this year.
