September 11, 2019 -- 1926 Auburn 8-88
The 8-88 series was introduced in 1925 as the first line of Auburns developed under the direction of E.L Cord. Mr. Cord was not satisfied with a mere up-to-date design, he wanted to establish Auburn as a marque of distinction. The introduction of the hood and body moldinq, a reasonably priced eiqht cylinder line, and multi-colored paint schemes set Auburn apart from other automobiles.
In 1926 the average automobile manufacturer had a sales increase of one percent; Auburn had in the same time period an increase of fifty-two percent. Note the third door on this roadster which allowed for easier passenger access to the rumble seat.
