The Story: The 8-88 series was introduced in 1925 as the first line of Auburns developed under the direction of E. L. Cord. Mr. Cord was not satisfied with a mere up-to-date design; he wanted to establish Auburn as a marque of distinction.

The introduction of hood body molding, a reasonably-priced line of eight-cylinder motor vehicles, and multi-colored paint schemes set Auburn apart from other automobile manufacturers. In 1926, the average automobile manufacturer had a sales increase of one percent; Auburn had an increase of fifty-two percent in the same time period. Note the third door on this roadster, which allowed for easier passenger access to the rumble seat.

Technical: The 1926 Auburn 8-88 Roadster is powered by a 299 cubic-inch displacement Lycoming in-line eight-cylinder engine that produces 72 horsepower. The wheelbase measures 129 inches and the car weighs 3,180 pounds. The price of the 8-88 Roadster in 1926 was $1,695.
