Auburn 12-165 Salon Speedster at Radnor Hunt

Auburn 12-165 Salon Speedster 3

This was the cheapest 12 cylinder American luxury car in 1933, one third the price of a comparable Packard. But 1933 was an era in the shock of the Great Depression, and those with money had become more hesitant to flaunt their wealth around with things like fancy cars. As a result, only 14 of these Auburns were produced that year.

The car you see here has been restored to its original black and burgundy color scheme. Enjoy the photos.
