1936 Auburn
Model 852 4-Door Convertible

1936 factory price: $1,725
engine: Lycoming supercharged straight 8
transmission: 3 speed manual with a Columbia 2-speed rear axle (dual-ratio)
manufactured: Auburn, Indiana

This rakish, powerful sporting automobile was a preferred driver's choice during the rip-roaring mid-1930s.

However, the Auburn Automobile Company along with Duesenberg and Cord were struggling to recover financially after the Depression years. Therefore this 1936 model Auburn is almost identical to the 1935 model; and by mid-1937 neither Auburn, Cord, nor Duesenberg were building any automobiles.

Sadly, in 1937, each of these three great American automobile names passed into automotive history.
