Auctions America Auburn Fall Spotlight: 1932 Auburn 12 Boattail Speedster
During the height of the Classic Era, few auto manufacturers could match the elegance and innovation of the companies under E.L. Cord’s fast-growing business empire. His cornerstone enterprise, of course, was Auburn, which Cord famously transformed into a manufacturer of stylish performers at a reasonable price point.
This Auburn was subject to a no expense spared, high-quality restoration in 2006-2007 by renowned pre-war specialists, Stone Barn Restorations. Equipped with the famed Lycoming V-12 engine that produces 160 bhp it sports a three-speed manual transmission and a Columbia two-speed rear axle that combine together to make these Auburns easily capable of achieving highway speeds.
