bigtoyz created the topic: '35 653 coupe
I have the remains of a 653 coupe with a parts car. I thought it was a cabriolet but recently realized the differences. I am trying to decide whether to restore it as a coupe or as a cabriolet. I understand they are the same body but different windshield frames. I have only seen 1 picture of a coupe. Are they extremely rare? Are there any diagrams, photos, ect. to help a person build put this back together? Any help/suggestions would be appreciated.

YES the Auburn is rare, and YES it is worth saving. I am one of the ACD technical advisor for the 1934-1936 Auburns and have 5 of them myself.
You are in Minnesota. I am in Prescott Wisconsin which is right across the border from the Twin Cities. I have restored a cabriolet and am doing another one. I can tell you how to convert the coupe to a cabriolet . I have the parts to do it. I also have all of the original wood patterns if you want to bring your coupe back to original.
Give me a call 715-262-3183 3-9 PM central or anytime on the weekends.

The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.
Be of Good Cheer

Dear Scott

The coupes are about all gone, very few have survived. The only difference in the windshield is that it has a couple of small parts
added so it won't fold. To many have been converted into Cabriolets
and this is a shame.
