  1. Close again..... smile.... Auburn had the 2 speed control on the dash and the lever on the floor is to engage or disengage the free wheeling. I removed a 12 Cyl Columbia axle a few summers ago because the man buying the car want the original Franklin rear end assembly . That Franklin the controls were on the floor like a second gear shift assembly but it had been crudely installed about 50 years ago. Also E L Cord may have owned Columbia axle.... I dont remember. But I think so...
  2. Bob , Ive never seen this image before. At first I didn't think it was your car because the spokes look like chrome but your car is the only one with a courtesy light in the left apron. Maybe if a previous owner did it was it Bill Longley?
  3. Well close..... Auburn 12 and Franklin 12 cars shared the same rear axle assembly made my Columbia Axle. I dont believe Auburn made any 2 speed axles .Ive had several of them in all 3 configurations. With some updates they are a great accessory. There is a big difference in the 12,8 and 6 cyl axles in size and weight.

  14. I just read tag and its 1941. Here are the picture.s also a flashlight sterring column holder.
  15. Im going to shop now to look and get a picture, will post in a bit.
  16. Just ran across this old family photo. My dad had Uncle Chip install a new top on this Ford around 1958 . Im guessing he was done when this was taken. Dad was doing a lot of wheeling and dealing then and no idea where it ended up.
  17. I just uncovered a very nice original 1941 Buick script filler that fills in the dash for a radio delete car. Will post a few pictures if anyone is interested. $ 50.00 includes shipping Mike 585 738 1541
  18. Im just guessing ,and I measured it ...... but my memory was like 158 inches. Mechanically it looked complete and not bad. The wood is COMPLETLY gone.
  19. The OTHER buyer was his cousin Wallace.... It was a setup deal and your dad was smarter than they were. He recognized the rat in the room.
  20. I was selling a Auburn sedan that had been around the block a few times around here. A buyer came to look at it and after a short visit said " I know what you paid for it!" I responded " My dad gave me the farm where I live , does that mean its worth nothing?" I told him," Get the hell out of here, Ive got work to do!" It was easy to see he was a heckler.....
  21. If brought home on a open trailer it would literally blow away. Someone has used pine 2x4 material trying to glue it together. It looks a lot better in the pictures that up front and personal. Is parts only , period.
  22. This Buick is in my backyard . Maybe 2 months ago I went with a truck and trailer to look. I left it there with no regrets. This is strictly a parts car . The wood is all gone and its missing a lot. The extra long wheelbase would be only good for a commercial car. .The price is right if you have a need for these parts. The seller is motivated waiting for a offer.
