1980 Buehrig Coupe Sold
1980 Buehrig - 1 of 3 Built
Styled by the legendary Auburn, Cord Duesenberg designer Gordon Buehrig and built in collaboration with Richard Kughn of the Car Rail Museum in Detroit. Research indicates only 3 examples were produced although plans were to build 50 units at a retail price of $130,000 each in 1980! One resides in the "Buehrig Room" at the ACD Museum in Auburn Indiana. Another is believed to still be owned by the Kughn family. The third is the car offered here which was Dick Kughn's personal car and the only one ever sold. We acquired this car directly from the Kughn estate.
Built from a new Corvette in 1980. The VIN therefore decodes to a 1980 Corvette and the drivetrain is stock Corvette. Only 1,800 miles since new and stored in a climate controlled garage. It remains all original and in near showroom condition today. The build quality is remarkable!
