The Auburn Twelve offered outstanding engineering, performance, style and was produced for only two years, 1932 and 1933. The “boattail” speedster model, styled by the young and skilled Alan Leamy with a flowing two-passenger body that gracefully tapered to the rear, accentuated by subtle two-tone moldings.
