Peter,
Welcome to the ACD Club! I look forward to seeing you and your car at some of our meets.

The GR number is the engine number. It is not uncommon to have the car registered with the engine number instead of the serial number. The engine should have a plate on the left side of the engine. The number should also be stamped on the block in the left front corner above the manifold.

The X-7534 number is the body tag. The body was built by Limousine Body Cmpany of Kalamazoo MI.

There should have been a serial number plate on the floor board, somewhere near the body tag. It looks like this may be long gone. There should be a "unit" number stamped on the frame. If I remember right (I don't have my cheat sheets with me) the number is on the right side of the car, behind the front wheel but check the frame from the front back to the cowl. From this number we can get to the serial number.

CORDially,
Jim

Jim,
As I said in an earlier post "Auburn" is that the unit/chassis number on a 1930 is usually found on the front of the frame where the spring attaches.
Usually stamped upside down. On passenger side. this has been common on most if not all of te 1930 Auburns we have certified and also my 1930 8-125 Cabriolet.
Not in the usual place as you have pointed out.
