Auburn was a featured marque this past year at Radnor and luckily for us all, Auburn owners in the area delivered in fine style. This deep jewel green 1932 V12-powered speedster looked incredible in the flesh at the Radnor Concours. It’s one of just twelve equipped with the V12 engine and this particular boat-tail body style. These were cars built truly for the aristocracy, with 84 of this body style rolling out of the factory in 1932. These were fine cars in their day, and are even more highly regarded now. I especially love the dark green finish–everyone talks about the stunning pastels that show up in all of the glossy calendar shots, yet this deep, attractive finish was probably more of the time period and gives this large roadster a real sense of panache. Enjoy the photos of this not-oft-seen cruiser.
