1930 Auburn 8-95 Phaeton Sedan
Here’s some really great pics of an unrestored 1930 Auburn 8-95 Phaeton Sedan we recently ran across.
We’ve seen quite a few all-original classic cars, but from a historical perspective, this one ranks as one of the most awesome we’ve come across in a while.
We love these pics and think you’re going to like them too, especially if you are an automobile history buff. Take a look and see if you feel the same.
Pretty cool, don’t you think?
I really hope you enjoyed seeing these pics of this unique piece of American automotive history.
Only 554 Auburn 8-95 Phaeton Sedans were built in 1930. It sold new for $1395 – which made it an expensive automobile at that time.
This is one of six still known to exist today, and the only one that is 100% original and unrestored.
This Auburn was originally found stored in an Illinois barn in 1979, where it had been sitting since 1952. It remained untouched until 2005 when it was purchased by the current owner who got it back on the road.
This 90-year-old Auburn is powered by a 100 hp Lycoming Straight Eight 247 ci engine and a 3-speed manual transmission. It runs great today and will remain unrestored and in its original condition to preserve a piece of automotive history.
I guess I’d better make my introduction. This is Greg Johnson, the fella responsible for OldCarNutz, and sharing many of the awesome vintage cars I’ve seen is the main reason why I created OldCarNutz. That’s it! That’s all. 🙂
Of course, a “but” is coming…
Listen, right out of the gate, I think I should come clean. To be perfectly honest, I really created this site for myself. See, I’m always checking out antique automobiles (like the 1930 Auburn 8-35 photos you just saw), and a cool site on which I could share some of my favorites with others is really what I was after.
Sure, I could have just done this in a Facebook group, like a lot of others, but I wanted something more creative. That’s just how I roll.
I also see this site as a decent financial opportunity as well. Why not just be honest, right?
I love sharing great content, and I also don’t mind making a few bucks from sponsorships and commissions on the side. Hopefully, you don’t see anything wrong with that.
It’s a wonderful world we’re living in where we can get paid for sharing our passions. I like to take full advantage. But let me be totally clear… any possible monetary benefit is incidental, and I’m not here to sell you anything.
If you get the itch to buy anything from any of my sponsors, that’s cool! If you’re just not interested, I won’t hold it against you. You just being here is what I was after. 🙂
I’m just cool with sharing interesting automobile info with like-minded people! 😉
So that’s why OldCarNutz.com exists. It’s pretty much an “all under one roof” resource for both myself and others who are interested in vintage cars. Sound good? Great! It’d be great to have you over again sometime. 😉
