1931 is considered a very significant year among Auburn collectors due to dramatic restyling from visionary designer Al Leamy, who applied some aesthetic contours and features from the Cord L-29. The result was a phenomenon of automobile design that put the previously struggling car manufacturer firmly in the center of the American luxury car market. There are few cars as marvelous as this 1931 Auburn Model 8-98A convertible coupe on the classic car market today.
This example was fully restored before entering into a museum collection more than 10 years ago. The car remains in excellent restored condition with full matching numbers, restored to 100% original spec. Used primarily in the Huntington Beach 4thof July parade for several years and the occasional drive up PCH, this is one of the cleanest examples available. She is mechanically and cosmetically in outstanding condition and she is turn-key ready to be enjoyed and driven.
