That's for my Dad to determine, I'm trying to help him get some information about his car. He doesn't use a computer or have one but I will show him all this when I see him next month. I appreciate all the feedback, he wanted to get some information and opinions about the cars value and I appreciate all the feedback.

Just to reiterate a point I made earlier. If this car has the overhead valve engine it is the bigger, more expensive model. There was overlap in production of the side valve models but the 6-63 with the ohv engine was different and cost more. Measure the wheelbase, it should be 122". The earlier side valve models were just a little shorter wheelbase. If the tyre size is original it will be 32 x 4.50 (4.50 x 23)

The price to me is neither here nor there.  What I was pointing out is that the car that this thread was originally about is a 1923-24 6-63.  A rare survivor, but not necessarily that valuable, and the car at the auction is not the only survivor, even though it is on disc rather than wood wheels, and its engine is not identical to that in the Speedway Stutz, although it may be similar.

Makes me sick, but I tried for many years to convince a "collector" who was in the "he who dies with the most toys, wins" frame of mind, he had a 1921 Beauty six Touring which was in great shape,....25 years ago, in Newman, Illinois, covered in Roofing because it had a flat tire during a parade and made him angry at it. Worst part is, I recently heard he had passed away and NO ONE knows where the car went. If you are in Newman, Illinois, and knew a John Berghbauer, you might contact me, especially about this Auburn.

So what was the price?  We have been kind of left hanging in the dark here after this discussion. 

The car was purchased at the Worldwide Auction (In Auburn) by the ACD Museum's Collection committee. I do not recall the price.

I DO know that it is a really great car! we pulled the oil pan, removed "XX" years of 'Gunk'.  Greased everything, changed fluids, etc and drove it a bit. a really cool car.

The "California Top" should actually be called "Unreal long legroom" (or similar) but I guess that doesn't roll off of the tongue so well.

IIRC it is one of 6 with the Wiedley engine, but do not quote me on that.

It is part of the permanent collection, on the 2nd floor.

Sad story. I know nothing of this, but you are not being ignored.
