Speedster
Coachwork: Union City
Chassis #: 9288E
Auburn built various Speedster models through the years. They were also the only maker to produce speedster style bodies in significant quantities. Designed by Alan Leamy, they spanned the years from 1928 through 1936 with no models built in 1930 or 1934. Auburn produced only 75 Speedster models for the model year in 1932.

The 8-100A was named for its 268-cubic inch, inline eight-cylinder engine that generated 100 horsepower. The A designated a custom-built model. A three-speed transmission was mated to a Columbia 'Dual Ratio' rear axle. This provided one set of gearing for city driving and a second gearing range for highway driving.

This car was originally built with sedan coachwork and was designated serial number 9288A. The current body for this car was created by the Union City Body Company. Union City was also known for the bodies they built for buses and delivery vans. Among their primary customers was the United Parcel Company.

Of special note for this car is the originality of the body, unlike many that exist today wearing later reproduction bodies. During the car's extensive five-year restoration, the serial number was changed to 9288E to denote the change to a Speedster body. Much of the original equipment remains on the car and it has been returned to original factory specifications including the use of most of its original woodwork.
