I do think this Forum site should add a section for original (period and factory/dealer/publicity) photographs and there probably needs to be an Early Auburn section, a 1931-1933 Auburn section, a 1934-1935 Auburn section, Cord L-29 section, 810-812 section, and ... I would gladly moderate such.

I second the motion. It should be possible to create a searchable originality photo archive.
You mentioned that Rick Hulet was a stickler for authenticity. Has anyone continued his legacy? An archive of Rick's pictures would be invaluable to those of us trying to get as "original" as possible.

I posted an inquiry to the "General Discussion Area" page - perhaps everyone could chime in with their enthusiasm.

Its a 36 car but maybe a 35 car made for the first car show. I can't enlarge enough to see if the firewall is hand built. This car has the vented wheel covers. It has the cowl oil and coolant fillers. It has the three brush GAR 4630 Autolite generator with the TC top mounted voltage regulator number VRP 4006-C.... There is no hood brace from side to side that I can see. I see the headlight body painted body color and it rides on Double Diamond tires probably double whitewalls. The coolant return tubes are chromed and the horns have the screens either chromed or cad plated along with the trumpet nut. The air filter on the carburetor is an early small one. And appears there is no insulation on the exhaust pipes from the manifolds. The radiator cap is either wrong or it was changed to the cap with the arm that must be on the passenger side to be correct. Difficult to tell if the fuel pump is the early one with the metal top instead of the glass bowl. Anybody see anything else???

Gary, This is either one of the prototypes or a handbuilt. I think more likely a handbuilt.
