Murray Hall created the topic: Auburn Toy Tractor???
A friend of mine contacted me recently about a toy tractor that a friend of his owns. It is 6-8 inches long, has a grill like a 1934 Auburn, has the original red paint and lettering and is a 1940s style tractor with rubber tires. On both sides of the hood, it says Auburn in the same script as on our Auburn cars. Has anyone seen such a toy? Does it have any connection to the Auburn Automobile Company? I told my friend that I would try and get an answer for him. Thanks for any help you can give.

Hi Murray,

Sounds like one of the toys made in Auburn for decades by Auburn Rubber, which many ACD guys, myself included, collect. I know they made tractors.

Indeed - the real question is whether the toy Murray is talking about is rubber or cast iron.

gOOgle: Auburn Rubber Tractor and click images and you'll see hundreds of tractors that were made in Auburn, Indiana back in the 40's and 50's. The factory was located and part of it still remains in the Cooper Tire complex off of 15th Street in Auburn.

Chris: no club members collect these old toys......... whacha talkin' about? lol ;)
