Mayor's 1935 Auburn auto stars at RM Auctions, bringing $212k

The "Venice of America" was filled with the glorious sound of engines revving, last weekend, at RM Auction's sensational Collectors Cars of Fort Lauderdale event.

The auction's top lot sold on Saturday, a magnificent 1935 Auburn 851 SC Convertible Sedan once owned by the Mayor of Auburn, Indiana.


The 1935 Auburn 851 SC Convertible Sedan, sold for $211,750

Previously displayed in the A-C-D Museum, this supercharged, dual-ratio example has a well-documented history.

Before its restoration was even complete, the Auburn won CCCA Primary first place, second at the fall A-C-D show and another second at the Glenmoor Gathering.
