1936 Auburn Boattail

Andy and I were watching Joey play baseball when we saw the car pull into the parking lot. It was clearly unique. He wanted to grab his phone and take his pictures, but since I had my camera, we agreed to use mine since the picture quality is better.

We were not sure what kind of car it was, but upon some research, it turns out to be a 1936 Auburn Boattail. It is given that name because of the unique trunk (see the pictures below). Upon further research, I found out that the 1936 Auburn runs any where between $550,000, which is what one sold for on Sotheby’s, and $895,000 on Hemmings. When I told Andy the Sotheby’s price, he immediately realized it cost the same as a Ferrari. I told him I would rather have the Auburn. He agreed.

The picture of the fender and gas cap was taken by Andy.

  1. I knew what it was as soon as I saw it because I have a Franklin Mint model of it in red.
