Even if you don’t love cars, go visit the Auburn Cord Dusenberg Automobile Museum in Auburn, Indiana anyway. Here are more photos, primarily from the “Gallery Of Classics.” (Earlier pictures are here, here, here, and here.)
Either another Duesenberg, or some sort of sick, inside joke by the guy who got the custom license plates.
2003 Indy Show Car
1925 Indy Racer
A 1960’s era Duesenberg sedan? (I wish I had done a better job of documenting what I was taking pictures of.) This may be the concept car designed by Virgil Exner.
Studebaker tried to break back into the US car market in the 1962 with the Avanti. Less than 6,000 were made.
I really had no idea before I saw this museum that Indiana was such a hotbed of automobile innovation and industry before World War II. All we know today is Detroit’s Big Three, but it wasn’t always so.
The museum here has restored examples from a dozen or more early Indiana companies, including Hanes & Apperson.
Waverley. Union. Overland. Plus over two dozen more early Indiana car companies, all lost to history, but pioneers in their day.
An early “Please Do Not Touch The Cars” model, year unknown. (I think it’s actually an early Auburn.)
Look at the way the brass tubing for the horn winds around the open “door” next to the driver. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it!
