September Automobile of the Month - 1934 Auburn 652Y Phaeton


Each month the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum designates one of its automobiles to be the Automobile of the Month.  Visitors are able to pick up and take home with them a full page of information about the spotlight automobile.  The September 2014 Automobile of the Month is a 1934 Auburn 652Y Phaeton, graciously on loan to the museum from Gary and Marsha Grcic of Columbus, Ohio.

1934 was Alan Leamy, Jr.’s last year working for Auburn Automobile Company.  His design of the Auburn for that year was a restyling of his work on previous years, 1931-1933, but with a sleeker look and unique hood louvers.  The 1934 Auburn exhibits art-deco design, from its horizontal hood louvers to its tall and narrow radiator shell.

The Auburn 652Y Phaeton is powered by a 209.9 cubic-inch Lycoming six-cylinder engine that produces 85 horsepower.  Its wheelbase measures 119 inches and the vehicle weighs 3,348 pounds.  New, this car sold for $945.
