1932 Auburn 8-100 Custom deluxe Phaeton Convertible Sedan $65000

I have owned this car for almost 8 years and I have done or had done a great deal of the restoration work needed to make this car one of the best if not the best of its type. I have two 1932 Auburns, this one and a Boat tail, and as retirement approaches, I find that space and finances require me to sell one.

Fenders are all bolted and fitted to the car. They need to have final fit and welting installed (welting all braces and parts included)

Do final fit on upper and lower pitchfork and crank hole for grill and have plated

Install windows in doors and windshield (all frames re-chromed.)


As I said at the beginning of this list, this car will be one of the best if not the best 8-100 phaeton in existence when finished. The only expense besides the assembly (which can be done by anyone with mechanical aptitude), is the installation of the interior, top canvass, cutting of the glass (all window frames are re-chromed), and the plating of the grill. As far as parts the car is 100% complete the paint is absolute show quality, and has been rubbed out and polished. If you are looking for a car of this design, and do not want to have to go through all the heartache and expense of doing one yourself, this is the car for you.

I can assist in packing up all the loose parts for shipment to the US or worldwide if necessary.

If you want to arrange an appointment to see the car contact me. Also, if you purchase the car, I will be more than happy to lay out all parts and explain where everything goes.

I have a vast library of pix that have been taken to aid in reassembly which you can copy.

Feel free to ask any questions you may have. Pictures are available, just email and request.
