The '33 Auburn was a favorite when it appeared at local shows, a car that was simply maintained and enjoyed for decades.  I'm sure the new owner will as well.

Worked fine for me on my iPad, John. Just now, and several hours ago also. I sure like the '23 Lincoln.   -   Carl

Just my opinion but it doesn't get much better than the '33 Auburn if you're talking attractive cars. Art with wheels.

Not sure what the market is on them as I don't have the money to play with them now but i know the 12 commands more than the 8.  I would guess around 100G.  It's not a fresh car as it has a small rip in the top and some paint issues on the rear pan below the rumble lid.  It would be the perfect candidate for me if I wasn't so broke.

The '33 Auburn Twelve sold for $96,000 plus $15,000 as buyer premium, sales tax etc.  It's headed to Tennessee.  Good Bye, lovely Auburn!

I was right on, on that one.  Now if i hadn't built a big garage,  I would have had enough money to buy it.  I guess I can't have both.  I either get a nice car and not enough place to store it,  or a nice place to store a car I can't afford. LOL

that is why I use storage bodies on my property. they arent great, but they certainly are affordable and I will be gone in 20 years anyway!

 

good call on the hammer down.

Unfortunately? we have a pretty nice  piece of property with a nice house that I can't hide a storage body on well,  so I am stuck with building a "nice" garage.  That Auburn really deserves to be in a nice dry heated garage, especially with the Northeast temperature swings and humidity. 

I just need to learn to live within my beer pocketbook and forget the champagne taste. ;)

Auburn feels cheap to me.

Might have brought more at a regular auction venue.  Hard to say without seeing it in person as to be perfect looked like it needed a re restore, but I would have been more than happy to have it with a little age on it,  so I could enjoy it.
