1932 Auburn Custom 12 1932 Auburn Twelve Custom Phaeton The 12 cylinder Auburn, although in production for only 3 years, was one of the great American cars of the era. The George Kublin designed L-head V-12 is a sensational engine. It produces 160 horsepower from 391 cubic inches. In addition, the Dual-ratio rear axle was standard on Custom models and allowed the Auburn to be driven easily at highway speeds or in the lower ratio for city driving. Young Alan Leamy designed this sleek Convertible Phaeton as well as the other Auburn models. It remains one of the most beautiful designs to come out of the ACD group. Not only is it sleek with the top up or down, the windshield folds down like many sports cars. This Auburn has received a Pebble Beach restoration and was shown in 2009. In 2014 it won First Place honors at the Des Moines Concours. The Salon trim adds elegance to the car. This nut and bolt restoration included all mechanical components. It remains a stunning show car as well as an amazing road car and is effortless to drive, shifts like butter and stops easily.
