The Auburn Automobile Company experienced growing popularity in 1927. Although overall passenger car production fell industry-wide, Auburn increased shipments by 63.9 percent, for a total of 13,950 cars. The new 8-77 model was Auburn’s latest push to increase sales with an attractive low-priced eight-cylinder passenger car. In fact, it was the lowest-priced eight-cylinder car on the U. S. market in 1927. The 8-77 featured the small-eight of the Auburn lineup, with the larger 298.6 cubic inch eight-cylinder powering the 8-88 model line. Although this was a low-priced eight-cylinder vehicle, it still provided the driver with a sense of style. Equipped with a golf club bag compartment, it was the perfect car for the young affluent bachelor.
This 8-77 cabriolet sports a 225.7 cubic inch in-line eight-cylinder engine. It produces 62 horsepower at 3,200 revolutions-per-minute. With a wheelbase of 125 inches, it has a weight of 3,170 pounds. This model of cabriolet had a starting price of $1,595.
