The Auburn 8-101 and 8-101A were produced during the early 1930s. The eight symbolized the number of cylinders while the 101 represented the amount of horsepower produced by the engine. Most Auburn models came with the Lycoming 8-cylinder engine along with Midland steel-draulic brakes. The engine output was rated at 100 horsepower at 3,400 rpm and had a 268.6 cubic inch displacement.

The 'A' behind the number, i.e. the 8-98A, 8-100A, and 8-101A, means that this car is a custom or at least a deluxe model and has a few more included options such as a dual-ratio rear axle -usually wire wheels -an upgraded interior in hardware and fabric, and a few extra moldings.

In 1932 a total of 11,347 Auburns were shipped from their factory.

Sometimes referred to as a ‘Baby Duesenberg', the Model 8-100A Auburn is a masterpiece of automotive design excellence.

Auburn strove to provide a stylish and innovative automobile to the public at an affordable price. Despite the depression, the talent of designers Gordon Buehrig and Alan Leamy inspired the designs of E.L. Cord's Auburn Cord Duesenberg Company to produce some of the most stunning examples of classic automobile design.

The model 8-100A was an 8 cylinder with 100 horsepower. A custom model, the 8-100 A signified that it was custom, with added features like a Columbia dual ratio rear axel, chrome headlights and taillights, and ride control.

A real eye catcher, the 8-100A, the custom model 4-door sedan cost an average of $1,145 in 1932.

Most Auburn models came with the Lycoming 8-cylinder engine along with Midland steel-draulic brakes. The engine output was rated at 100 horsepower at 3,400 rpm and had a 268.6 cubic inch displacement.
The choice of making a Columbia two-speed rear axle standard equipment on all models was one of the few changes made to the 1932 models.
Several Auburn models came with a 12 cylinder engine, and others were fitted with hydraulic brakes.
Besides the 7 passenger sedan, all 8-100 A models came with a 127' wheelbase, freewheeling and the Bijur chassis lubricating system. 1932 was the first year for the Startix, an automatic feature that would start the engine whenever the ignition was turned on.

Fortune applauded the 1932 Auburn as ‘The biggest package in the world for the price.'
