More from the 2013 Auburn Cord Duesenberg Festival

Here’s a second big photo gallery of Auburn, Cord, and Duesenberg vehicles from this past weekend’s ACD Festival in Auburn, Indiana.

 

You can find part one of the 2013 ACD Festival coverage here. 

The annual ACD Festival has been an annual tradition since 1954. It’s an institution in little  Auburn, Indiana (pop. 13,086) and it’s an institution in the collector car world as well.

It’s interesting to contemplate the fact that in 1954, many of these great cars were barely 20 years old. They weren’t yet the prestigious classics they are today. For the most part, these were merely some interesting old used cars.  We’re glad their qualities were recognized so early, preserving these automobiles for the enjoyment of generations to come. Gallery below.

    • How many Brunn Rivieras were made? Maybe you could trade the Bode art car for one. I really like the Murphy in the lead photo.

  1. Three Brunn Rivieras total, but only two were supercharged. I’m guessing the Bode art car and the Leata should be good for the normally aspirated Brunn…

    The Murphy is a great looking car also. In fact, I’ll go out on a limb and say that there isn’t a bad looking Model J out there. Not everyone loves the Bauer car because it’s different but I think it’s very cool.

    • In my opinion the Brunn Riviera is among the most attractive J touring styles — for example, in long perspective where you can take in the whole of it at once. Wow, what a car.

      I admire the Bauer too – it is what it is and for what it is, the design has integrity. The one J I don’t care for much is the so-called Tom Mix car, prob. because the rebody is amateurish.
