AAA Editor Notes
Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum is 1 mi. s.e. of I-69 via SR 8, following signs to 1600 S. Wayne St. Decorated in its original 1930 Art Deco style, the museum is in the former international headquarters and showroom of the Auburn Automobile Co., manufacturer of the legendary Auburn, Cord and Duesenberg luxury motorcars. Visitors will walk the same halls as did the automotive giants of yesterday and may see more than 120 antique and classic automobiles from the 19th century to the present. The focus is on the innovative and boldly styled Auburns, Cords and Duesenbergs produced in Indiana during the 1920s and 1930s.
The Gordon Buehrig Gallery of Design pays tribute to the efforts of the Mason City, Ill.-born automobile designer responsible for the designs of such vehicles as the 1935 Auburn Speedster. Other museum highlights include the Gallery of Racers and Record-Setters, the Hall of Technology and automobiles produced by Packard, Ferran and Rolls-Royce as well as rare cars built in Indiana.
