Do not miss this opportunity and become the new owner of this unique and rare Auburn convertible! This is a NO RESERVE PRICE AUCTION.

Auburn was founded in 1900 and built the most beautiful cars until 1937. In 1925, the company was acquired by Erret Cord who incorporated it in his Cord Corporation a few years later. In 1937, the group collapsed during The Great Depression. Unfortunately it also meant the end for Auburn.

This turnkey delivered Auburn 852 Speedster is one of about 30 Auburns supplied by Antique Autos of America (Largo Florida). Antique Autos of America is operated by David Samuels in Largo, Florida. With more than fifty employees, Antique Autos of America was one of the most important car restoration companies in the United States. Cars restored by Antique Autos included the famous Frank Lloyd Wright L29 Cord in 1981. Southeastern Replicars was the replica division of David Samuels’ company.

David Samuels' Auburn Speedsters are considered the most authentic-looking and best-looking Auburn Speedsters. They are therefore rarely offered for sale. The Auburn is described as an Auburn on the American registration certificate.

This Auburn 852 Speedster is in neat and technically well-maintained condition, the car is also beautifully painted. The car starts immediately, it brakes properly and shifts smoothly through its gears. The interior is still as new as can be seen in the pictures and the soft top is in neat condition. This Speedster has nice whitewall tyres with good tread.

The Auburn has only 04,173 miles on the counter.

These 'David Samuels' Auburns are almost never for sale, so don't wait too long!
