Default 1936 Auburn

After watching an episode of American pickers where they were talking about Auburn cars I had to go back and shoot this a 1936 Auburn. They were saying that the barn find of an Auburn should be going for abut $25,000 and that was a basket case. Doing some research I believe this car was purchased several years ago for around $430,000. Quite a car

Great shots, and as the previous poster said, great detail.

I think you can get the new K-S1 in that same color .

Nice work, Hans. If I'm not mistaken, all Auburns were certified by the factory to have been driven at 100+ miles per hour before they were shipped. In fact, I'm pretty sure that's what the gold plaque on the passenger side of the dashboard is. Quite a performance car for the 1930s.

I never heard of an Auburn before, but what a nice car. Great photos make it look even better.
