1936 Auburn 852
The final year of production for the Auburn Automobile was 1936. The company went out with style, building such beautiful classics as this right-hand drive, supercharged Cabriolet. One of the interesting features of this vehicle built for export to England is its European-style trafficators, the small, illuminated indicator arms that emerge from slots in each side of the car to signal a turn. The donors of this vehicle spent six years researching and gathering parts for the restoration of this automobile. When the restoration was completed in 1983, the car captured a successive string of impressive awards including the Best Senior Class Car in the United States from the Antique Automobile Club of America. The wheelbase measures 127 inches and the car weighs 3,730 pounds. As new, the supercharged cabriolet cost $1,461.
