The Auburn Automobile Co.
Auburn, Indiana

One of the most famous of all American Automobiles was the Auburn produced in Auburn, Indiana by The Auburn Automobile Company.

The Auburn first appeared in 1900 when Frank and Morris Eckhart of the Eckhart Carriage Company began experimenting with hand built cars. The Eckhart's sold these hand built experimental automobiles in and around Auburn, Indiana.

In 1902, Auburn manufacture began in earnest and in 1903 examples were shown nationally at the Chicago Auto show. The 1903 Auburn was equipped with a single cylinder engine that could be started by crank from the seat. Features included a single chain drive, a 78 inch wheelbase and wheel steering.

1904 Auburn Runabout

The $800.00 1904 Auburn Runabout was essentially the same as the 1903 models. However, solid rubber tires had given way to pneumatics and the fuel tank was mounted under the hood. A larger six horsepower single cylinder engine was used. Optional accessories included oil lamps, frontal lantern type searchlights and a bulb horn. Only 50 Auburn automobiles were made in 1904.

1906 Auburn Touring Car

Auburn five passenger tonneau Touring Cars first appeared in 1905 with horizontally opposed water cooled two cylinder engines that developed 24 horsepower. The water tank joined the gasoline tank under the hood. Fenders and running boards were added. These Auburn's were priced at $450.00 more than the original.

In 1906, after the Model Gas Engine Works moved to Peru, Indiana, its complex was acquired by The Auburn Automobile Co. All Auburn's were produced at this location for the next thirty years..
