Hi AUBURN enthusiates

I own a 1930 8/125 Auburn cabriolet coupe and I am keen to restore it to as original as possible

Could some of you help with the following problems

1 How is the top held fast to the windscreen ?

2 Are the top bows [of the top ] covered in fabric , stained , or painted ?

3 Was an arm rest fitted to the drivers seat ?

4Was carpet fitted to the floor front & back ?

5What brand were the windscreen wiper motors ?

YOUR HELP would be most appreciated


CORDially yours

You will find some of your questions answered if you take a look at the four "Auburn Judging Notes" in the ACD Club Forum on this web site, and it is worth looking at if you are restoring your car and want it authentic.

I do not have first hand knowledge of 1930 models but I am pretty certain of the following:

No front arm rests.
Rubber floor mat in front, carpet in rear.

I would guess that the top bows were painted.

thumbscrew part #g11-13520

Top bows are painted black
3 Was an arm rest fitted to the drivers seat ?
No, the front seat is a bench type

4Was carpet fitted to the floor front & back ?
the parts manual calls for a front & back floor mat for cabriolets.
also, carpet was fitted on the door panels, back of front seat riser,
foot rest carpet,both RH and LH rear floor riser carpet and rear floor carpet.

5What brand were the windscreen wiper motors ?
Only drivers side wiper motor, I believe trico

YOUR HELP would be most appreciated

JOHN,

NOT BEING ONE TO DISAGREE WITH THE HEAD AUBURN JUDGE/AUTHORITY, THE 1930 CABRIOLET HAS ONLY ONE WIPER ON THE DRIVERS SIDE. THIS IS SUBSTANTIATED BY BOTH MY ORIGINAL CAR AND THE 1930 PARTS MANUAL. THE WIPER STYLE IS NOT OF THE HEART SHAPED CHROME TYPE BUT OF A MORE COMMON BUCKET STYLE.

THIS IS NOT INTENDED TO OFFEND STAN.

Joel-

No offense taken, I just thought that if he was going to export it to the USA, dual wipers would help with the sale. I agree that the earlier cars take a somewhat larger but rather common wiper motor by Trico. I erroneously thought that it was a 1934-36 model. This is what happens when you jump in, in the middle!
