These Auburn features make for exceptional comfort, thorough
going dependability, distinctive beautv and remarkable economy.
These essentials, combined in the Auburn, set a new standard of
value. The Restful riding qualities of the Auburn car are made
possible by these superior principles of construction.
1.?Motor? Continental Red Seal Motor
?Model 7-R, the finest product of the
world's largest exclusive motor manufac
turers, with its positive-pressure oiling
system and four-bearing crank'shaft^vhich
eliminates vibration. 55 brake horsepower
at 2600 R. P. M. Power, flexibility,
smoothness and economy.
2.?Velvety Spring Action?Auburn,
springs are unusually long and strong.'
They re made right and hung right. Front
springs are provided with snubbers, add
ing still greater comfort and protecting
springs against breakage.
3.?Torque Arm?A torque arm on the
rear axle takes up both the driving and
braking reaction. The springs are thus
relieved of this extra dun . This results in
fullest riding comfort, and longer l^e for
the car. t - '
4.?Comfort?Seat and back cush
ions are deep and soft. Seat cushions built
over double deck springs?th^ upper decks
are very sensitive, while the lower decks
come into play only under abnormal
weights and road irregularities.
5.?Upholstery?Upholstery is of finest
quality hair and felt, covered with genuine
semi-bright, long grain, black leather.
.French-pleated in soft folds.
6.?Oilless Bushings?Oilless bushings
are generously used in all inaccessible
places. Entire system of brake levers and
pedals floats upon 14 of these bushings.
This construction avoids chassis squeaks,
rattles and undue wear at t-hese hidden
points.
7.?Frame?Frame is of deep section,
.wide flange, nigh carbon steel with FIVE
cross members of like material. Taper
side channels insure perfect alignment of
entire chassis, eliminating body squeaks
and door rattles.

enclosed with accessible adjustment. An
nular and thrust ball bearings throughout.
Easy operating clutch pedal.
9.?Transmission?Transmission in unit
with motor, insuring perfect alignment.
Gears are of forged nickel steel, case hard
ened. The teeth in Auburn Transmission
?:ears are not only unusually wide but the
ace of each tooth is individually ground
after hardening, rendering their operation
especially quiet. This is a mechanical re
finement rarely found even in high priced
cars.
10.?Steering Column?Steering column
and wheel set at proper angle for maxi
mum comfort to driver. Steering wheel of
moulded black rubber composition with
polished aluminum spider. Corrugated
grip on steering wheel.
11.?Instrument Board ? Instrument
board and tonneau cabinet finished in
;enuine walnut. Instruments sunk into
ard beneath individual glass dials.

service. High carbon steel shaft, excep
tionally strong and flexible.
13.?Curtains?Storm-tight curtains

curtains when not in use is eliminated by
the container fastened inside of tonneau
cabinet door where they are always acces
sible without disturbing passengers.
14.?Body Moulding?Top edge of body
is finished with a smart aluminum mould
ing along its entire length and around the
cowl. This moulding permits an unusually
neat and durable body finish.
