THE AUBURN

Today the Auburn name is most associated with its flamboyant speedsters of the late 20s and 30s and its association with the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Corporation. To ignore its early years would be to dismiss some of the more interesting and clever products the Indiana manufacturer produced. 

Auburn began production in 1900 and built singles and twins exclusively until 1909. The big twin was particularly impressive making 24hp. In 1909 the first of the fours were introduced and they would become the foundation for the new models going forward. An upmarket inline six was introduced in 1913 with the lineup eventually consolidating under the six-pot banner by 1917. A change of ownership in 1919 witnessed little change in engineering but the acquisition of the company by E.L. Cord in 1924 heralded real changes. Lycoming straight eights came in 1925 and the company would then go on to produce its famous Boattail Speedster until Cord's empire imploded in 1936.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Much as Duesenberg's Model J largely eclipsed the memory of the Model A that had proceed it—and E.L. Cord's ownership of Duesenberg—the early Auburns such as this 6-38 "Chummy" Roadster are rare survivors. This little Auburn wears period Ohio plates, likely alluding to some time spent in the Buckeye State that neighbors its state of birth. Wearing a close-coupled Chummy Roadster body, the car appears to have been offered for sale in Auburn in 1986 (along side 30 Rolls-Royce formerly from the garage of Baghwan Shree Raajneesh) and appeared again at the 1991 Auburn Auction at which time it was purchased by Mr. Spain and joined the collection here.

Precious few of these cars are seen today and this is a fine example. A sporting machine with front bucket seats, it is the recipient of an older restoration. Complete with its handsome top and side curtains, it would make a stellar AACA tour car and fine addition to most any collection.

 1964 Citroen DS19 Décapotable 

Beautifully restored and comprehensively upgraded, this 1964 Citroen DS19 Décapotable offers much more than initially meets the eye. Finished in a gorgeous shade of metallic indigo blue with a blue canvas roof and tan leather interior. Lifting the bonnet reveals a comprehensively built, turbocharged, fuel-injected 2.5-liter engine adapted

from a Citroen CX. From top to

bottom, the restoration and subsequent improvements ar beautifully executed.

Restoration occurred around 2004,

while the car was in Europe. The

project is documented with a series of photographs, and copies of ownership

papers place the car in Holland

in 2006. In 2011, the Citroen came

to the United States courtesy of an

enthusiastic new owner who immediately

had it serviced and prepared for touring

and rallies. Around that time, it was

decided to replace the original engine

with something more powerful,

while respecting the car’s rarity

and importance. The owner then

commissioned an Indiana-based prototyping/engineering firm to

source, build and install a late-model

CX GTi Turbo engine.

 

An impressive stack of invoices document the process, which took place from 2011-2013. So much more than a simple engine swap, an incredible amount of re-engineering took place to adapt the transverse CX engine into the longitudinal DS platform and have it fit under the bonnet. Before installation, the engine was rebuilt for additional power, refinement, and longevity. The 2.5-liter “stroker” crankshaft is micro polished, lightened and balanced, then paired with custom billet pistons and balanced connecting rods. Additional features include a ported-polished head,stainless valves, specially designed cam, custom milled flywheel, and updated turbo. Fueling and ignition are controlled via a standalone Motec M400 ECU, custom adapted with a hall-effect distributor, crank and cam sensors. Custom alloy radiator. 5-speed gearbox has been upgraded with gears made by Hewland. Countless other details ensure a seamless installation that, when the bonnet is closed, allows the car to be virtually indistinguishable from a standard model.
