The Auburn Automobile Co.
Auburn, Indiana

The 1920s brought many changes for The Auburn Automobile Co. and the American Automobile called the Auburn. First was the Beauty Six introduced in 1919 by Auburn. (See Auburn 1910-1919). Then came the larger engines on the Auburn 6-43, 6-63 and 8-88. Finally in 1924 the owners of The Auburn Automobile Co. brought in as general manager 30 year old Erret Lobban Cord. Cord had the Auburn completely re-styled by J. M. Crawford. In two years Cord was president of The Auburn Automobile Co.
