Is there any estimate of at what serial number 1935 Auburns started using the 3 and then 5 core plug engines that replaced the side plate engines? Curt's Auburns Midwest site just says early to mid 1935.
Thanks

I don't know the answer to your question, but I do know that your cabriolet is very early 1935 production. Number 60 off the line

Mark, the inquiry is not for that car. It's for one I'm considering.

There are four different eight cylinder blocks. There are no serial number break downs. From the factory, you may have a earlier engine in a later car, but a late engine in a early car ; probably not.

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

Curt,
Is the 4th engine the 5 plug one with supercharger lugs on right side?

Yes, among other casting changes.
