Mark, Dallas Winslow bought the company's assets and continued providing parts and service from the former AAC headquarters (now the museum) in Auburn for years. That letter hails from Winslow's ACD Company.

I don't think there is any doubt that Duesenberg Green is not the right color for 35-36 Auburn engine.

Yes, that is a bright, almost irridescent green. Engine should be blue-ish green. Or grey, Al. (I was told that grey was used by a major rebuilder years ago, but your engine looks good) Nice polish on that blower cover.

Here is a link to a LOT of photos that I took of Bob Bocock's Auburn Speedster that he was restoring.

Sorry for the very large photo sizes. The bottom of his supercharger housing is painted black.

Here is a shortcut to the actual photo:

Just so you know the polish on the supercharger cover will most likly get a deduct, if you care about such things. So will the black water pump, chrome fan, etc. I have several things on my Auburn that are not correct but I like them so I didn't change them. I didn't like the chrome starter and gen. and did change them. I think the previous owner must have owned a chrome shop.

ilikescars replied the topic: S/C color
I just saw an old factory picture of a s/c engine. The lower part of the blower was not black. It was the same color as the engine. Also, that old "porch" engine appears to have traces of green on the lower housing as well.
