Auburn History

1936 Auburn 852

Share on:

E.L. Cord purchased the Auburn Automobile Company in the mid-1920s. The goal was to produce distinctive and elegant motor cars, and they would do so until late 1936. Auburn's were known for their superior performance, roominess, and comfort.

This 5-passenger convertible sedan was assembled at the Connersville, Indiana plant in the summer of 1936. The standard production order lacked several of the popular accessories of the era such as dual-mounted spares and the supercharged engine, making this automobile rather unique.

Riding on a 127-inch wheelbase, this 852 is powered by a 280 cubic-inch Lycoming eight-cylinder engine that produces 115 horsepower. The base price in 1936 was $1,360. Auburn ceased production in early 1937, making this one of the last Auburns produced.
