However, sales did dip to 11,270 in 1930 but were up to 28,000 in 1931. In 1932 the Depression began to affect The Auburn Automobile Co. with loses of over 1 million dollars and only 11,646 units sold. The next year was even worse with only 6,000 1933 Auburn’s sold.

series. The 70 horsepower six-cylinder, 100 horsepower eight and 125 horsepower eight were gone. They were replaced with a smaller 98 horsepower straight eight engine on all 14 Auburn models available in 1931.
1932 Auburn Boattail Speedster
In 1928 (See Auburn 1920-1929), Auburn introduced an American Automobile that would be synonymous with the brand, the Auburn Boattail Speedster. The 1932 Auburn Boattail Speedster series 12-160A Custom featured above had a V-12 cylinder with 160 horsepower, 133 inch wheelbase, weighed 4,235 pounds and was priced at $1,275.00. The Lycoming V-12 had 391 cubic inches and was designed by Auburn chief engineer George Kublin. Custom twelve’s featured the well known Columbia dual ratio rear axle gear sets and a six speed transmission.
In 1932 four different Auburn Speedster were available. The series 12-160A mentioned above, a $1,145.00 series 12-160 without the Columbia rear axle, a $975.00 series 8-100A with a straight eight 100 horsepower engine and Columbia rear axle and a $845.00 series 8-100 with a straight eight 100 horsepower engine without the Columbia axle.

The 1934 Auburn line featured streamlined bodies but poor styling. A 85 horsepower six cylinder was available again along with a new 115 horsepower straight eight. The thirty-six Auburn models available in 1933 were reduced to just 18 in 1934. 1934 was not a good year for Auburn or any other American Automobile company.
Styling improved in 1935 when designer Gorden Buehrig and engineer August Duesenberg added a bold grille and massive hood. A Schwitzer-Cummins supercharger was added to the 115 horsepower straight eight increasing its horsepower to 150. Series 851/852 Supercharged Auburns were identified by external exhausts. 1935 Auburns included series 653/654, 653 Custom, 653 Salon with six cylinders engines, 851/852, 851/852 Custom, 851/852 Salon with eight cylinder engines.
1936 Auburn Boattail Speedster
The 1936 Auburn line was a repeat of 1935. Only 600 Speedster were built in 1935 and 1936. Total output in 1936 was just 1848 units. In spite of what could be called a brilliant line of American Automobiles sales and production continued to plummet throughout the 1930s. No Auburns were made in 1937.
