The fast rise and eventual collapse of E.L. Cord’s massive industrial empire, with the Auburn, Cord and Duesenberg marques at its core, remains one of corporate America’s most fascinating and tragic stories. From the dramatic turnaround of Auburn in the mid-1920s, which is a textbook case of selective marketing, Cord’s companies manufactured and sold some of the most innovative, stylish and value-rich automobiles ever conceived.
The L-29 Front Drive Cord was developed as a new, medium-priced Read More
While the Chrysler 300 is widely recognized as America’s first true muscle car, it was also a refined full-size automobile with abundant luxury features.
Its dual-quad 331-ci Hemi V8 delivered 300 horsepower and was the most powerful engine available to the public since the supercharged Duesenberg Model SJ.
Finished in Tango Red with a luxurious tan leather interior, this C-300 has been the subject of numerous magazine articles, and it has been a consistent Read More

Model Ts were a natural for these conversions because of their sheer simplicity — and massive numbers on the road
Virgil D. White was a clever inventor who sold and serviced Model T Fords, becoming an authorized Ford dealer in West Ossipee, NH. By 1913, he had patented a snowmobile conversion kit for Model T Fords, which he sold for $400, and complete vehicles were sold for $750. 1923 seems to be the first year that he actively marketed Read More
The consignor of Futurliner Number 3 that is available at our auction in Auburn purchased the vehicle out of an Indiana warehouse in 1999. It is believed to be one of the Futurliners that passed through Joe Bortz’s hands.

All of the exterior letters are original, have never Read More
