Auburn Speedster paint scheme

Recommended Posts

I was dropping off tree branches at the city recycler today and could have got a can of that green for free. How was I to know it was an ACDC color?

This is my favorite paint scheme for an early Auburn Speedster, but I don't think I've ever seen one painted this way. Are there any restored cars like this? (Or any originals?)

Picture on page 79 and 80 of Errett Lobban Cord book.  In El Paso, The Auburn dealer hired the lobby of the main hotel and placed a roadster inside. There was a picture inside the hotel, which is currently closed undergoing a complete rejuvenation. The car has the Auburn sweep, which was first seen in a rough sketch E L made before he began the empire. Is that a chauffeur, a pilot, or both in the picture? He has a military air.
