The Eckhart brothers had a success with the Auburn but ran into parts shortages during WWI. They needed investment money for the company and in 1919 a group of Chicago investors took over. One of those investors, Ralph Austin Bard, became assistant secretary of the treasury under Franklin D. Roosevelt. This group was unable to achieve profitably and in 1924, E.L. Cord took over in what is now called a leveraged buyout.

Although conservatively styled, the 1922 Auburn was marketed as the 'Beauty Six.' Sales were modest until a new general manager was appointed in 1924. He would change the Auburn company's fortunes forever - his name, E.L. Cord.

The 643 was the last new model introduced before Cord's takeover and was powered by a Continental six-cylinder engine that produced 50 horsepower and displaced 195.6 cubic-inches. Standard equipment included front and rear heaters, a sun visor and a trunk. The touring sedan sold for $1,465 and had no available options.

The current owners acquired the car in 1994. Touring sedans were 'paint to order' vehicles and this car was restored to its original paint scheme. It has been given a senior award in AACA and ACD judging.
