Lot 009: 1932 AUBURN 8-100 BOAT-TAIL SPEEDSTER
Finished in yellow with red accent moulding and tan upholstery, this particular Auburn has been part of the collection since the mid 1990s. Apparently purchased by its last American keeper - a Mr Howard Baumgartner of Indiana - in 1972, it is currently undergoing some refurbishment. Whether or not it will be in working order by the time of sale is unclear and as such it is being sold strictly as seen. Furthermore, the documentation accompanying the vehicle is somewhat sparse and does not contain for example a certificate of authenticity / inspection from the Auburn-Cord-Duesenberg Club. As such, we would urge potential purchasers (as with all the cars in this or any other sale) to make their own investigations as to provenance / history. A mere 11,347 Auburns of all descriptions are thought to have left the factory during the 1932 calendar year. PLEASE NOTE: The Auburn Cord Duesenberg Club have informed us that this car was fitted with a replica steel body by John Russo while in the ownership of Mr Howard Baumeartner. However, Mr Van Dijk believes the wings to be older.
