Description
Lot #1013.1 - The sleekest car in the company's history and it's flamboyant boattail took the public by surprise. Delivered new as an 8 cylinder example to Mr. May of Waukegan, IL and later purchased by a Dr. Woods. The speedster was then purchased by a Mr. Ross, who also owned a 12 cylinder Auburn Brougham, and with the sanction of the CCCA, switched the bodies of the two Auburns. Completed in the mid 60's and was sanctioned because the bodies were interchangeable from Auburn, and there was no loss of automobile. Upon completion of its initial lengthy restoration, the speedster won several awards taking first place in the 1984 AACA Spring Meet, first place in the 1984 ACD National, and in the 1985 AACA Annual Meeting President's Cup Award the Auburn won first place. In 1991, was shown at the Chicago International Concours d'Elegance winning second place. Michael Armand Hammer of Los Angeles, CA purchased the Auburn. Mr. Hammer subjected this Auburn to a complete recommission to include coach work featuring ostrich interior and complete mechanical restoration in every respect at a cost in excess of $50,000. Winning first in class honors at the 2004 Annual Irvine Concours d'Elegance in Irvine, CA. No other car so dramatically captures the spirit of the 1930's. This automobile features include automatic starting system, golf bag storage, adjustable ride control, 2-speed rear-axle, selectable coast mode transmission, factory exhaust cut-outs, and pilot-ray steering light.
