Auburn

The car with the four diagonal sets of hood louvers is a 1928 - 1930 Auburn. This would be quite the find today. The windshield is a very interesting design.

The two pictures below show what two of the models that were available would have looked like. Auburns were made from 1900 - 1936 with final sales in 1937.

Goldmine
