To be OFFERED AT AUCTION at RM Sotheby's Hershey event, October 5-6, 2017.Estimate:$90,000 - $110,000 USHailing from the final year of Auburn productionAn original phaeton with its original engine and Dual Ratio rear axleClassic Car Club of America (CCCA) Full ClassicThe Auburn Automobile Company was established in 1903 and matured into a well-respected builder of reliable cars, but it was not until E.L. Cord assumed the company's presidency in 1924 that its market stature grew. In fact, as the once-buoyant auto market collapsed following Black Tuesday, Auburn's sales continued to increase. By 1931, Auburn was the 13th largest American automaker, but the triumph was short-lived, as sales fell drastically in 1932 and 1933.Respected Auburn designer Al Leamy left Auburn in 1934, as he was saddled with the undeserved responsibility for the company's disappointing sales figures. With few available funds and little time, Gordon Buehrig and his small design staff kept the best elements of Leamy's1934designs. Buehrig's team concentrated on the frontal area by skillfully revising the grille and adding a pair of handsome "semi-pontoon" front fenders. However, despite great styling, good performance, and bargain pricing, the combined effects of the Great Depression, management turmoil, and E.L. Cord's complex business affairs led to Auburn's demise in 1937.The handsome phaeton sedan offered here was acquired by the current owner from Gene Morocco of Machesney Park, Illinois. Mr. Morocco had owned the car since 1972, when he acquired it from the family of the original owner in Northern California; it had been off the road and unregistered since the 1950s. The owner completed the restoration begun by Mr. Morocco, finishing the car in an original Auburn color scheme, black with an Artillery Grey beltline, and a complementary interior with rubber floor mats. As a Custom model the car is desirably equipped with the Dual Ratio two-speed rear axle, which makes it much more long-legged forcomfortabletouring.This would be a wonderful automobile for experiencing a wide range of available events with the Auburn Cord Duesenberg (ACD) Club and Classic Car Club of America (CCCA).

To be OFFERED AT AUCTION at RM Sotheby's Hershey event, October 5-6, 2017.Estimate:$85,000 - $105,000 USA genuine cabriolet with its original engine and Dual Ratio rear axleA beautiful restoration in attractive colorsClassic Car Club of America (CCCA) Full ClassicFor 1934, the Auburn line-up was restyled by Al Leamy. The styling was not well received, and by mid-1934, the assembly lines were halted so that the much improved, face-lifted 1935 model could be rushed into production. Designer Gordon Buehrig was allotted a $50,000 budget to improve the styling, and he succeeded with such changes as a handsome grille, semi-pontoon front fenders, and an enlarged hood. Auburn sales brochures declared the latest Buehrig design as being "Exclusive-Distinctive-Individual," and notably, Hollywood stars such as Mary Astor and George Murphy drove 1935 Auburns. Moreover, the 1935 Auburn models were praised for their improved ride and handling, thanks to a lowered center of gravity, a reduction of unsprungweight,and lower seat placement.The elegant car shown here is the upper-line Custom model of 1936, the final year of Auburn production, and is a genuine cabriolet with its original engine, as confirmed by its original serial number plate, which is still present, noting the serial number suffix "F" for cabriolet. Restored less than 10 years ago in its present attractive color combination, it is nicely finished, including a proper interior in leather, a correct canvas convertible top, and a nicely finished dashboard, engine bay, and chrome trim. As a Custom model it is equipped with the Dual Ratio two-speed rear axle, enabling relaxed and comfortable highway cruising.A Dual Ratio Auburn is one of the finest driving automobiles of the Classic Era, making this example a fine choice for any number of Auburn Cord Duesenberg (ACD) Club or Classic Car Club of America (CCCA) events all over the country.
