1931 Auburn 8-98A Project was created by rollingsculpturesllc
Last Saturday I purchased my first Auburn! It is a 1931 8-98A Convertible Sedan. The car has been sitting for over 30 years in primer.
My dad went with me to pick it up and we are working on getting all the parts assembled and getting it running.
Since the prior owner purchased it from an estate in primer, we have no idea what the original color was. I have pieces of leather that were black and a piece of the convertible top that was also black. Is there any way to tell what the original color was from the VIN? The VIN number is: 5232919784H.
I would like to use this forum to log the progress on the car and hopefully get some expert advice during the restoration. I will also need many parts I'm sure. Thank you for your assistance in advance!

Didn't the factory start the serial numbers over in 1931?
