The Eckhart brothers, who took over a carriage business from their father, built the first Auburn automobiles (named after their home town of Auburn, Indiana) in 1900 when they realized the future would not be horse-drawn. Some reports say they sold none of the four cars they built that first year because they were overpriced at $800. Auburn designed and built some successful cars but they were in financial trouble after World War I.

They were taken over in 191 by a group of Chicago businessmen headed by William Wrigley, Jr. of Wrigley Chewing Gum fame. In 1924, salesman E.L. Cord bought the company and the rest is history. The company became a part of his Auburn Cord Duesenberg empire, and built some of the most innovative and beautiful cars of the 1930s before falling victim to the Depression in 1937.

In 1925 the Auburn-designed six-cylinder engines were replaced by Lycoming straight-eights. Two eights were offered in 1930, one with a 125-inch wheelbase and the Super Eight with 130-inch wheelbase. The former had 100 horsepower, the latter 125.

This car has the 246 cubic-inch straight-eight Lycoming engine and was one of seven sold by Toronto Dealer O'Donne;l Mackie on March 29, 1930 for $1,495. The car was treated to a ground-up restoration in 2001.
