Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum presents the June Automobile of the Month:
1927 Auburn 6-66 Wanderer Sedan
Each month the Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum designates one of its automobiles to be the Automobile of the Month. Visitors are able to pick-up and take home with them a full page of information about the spotlight automobile. The June 2013 Automobile of the Month is the 1927 Auburn 6-66 Wanderer Sedan, graciously donated to the museum last year by Wayne Custer of Garrett, Indiana.
Do you think that the fold-down seat is a new innovation in automobile options? This Auburn 6-66 Sedan was built with that feature in 1927! The backside of the front seat folds down to form a bed with the backseat. It was called the “Wanderer” as it enabled travelers to lie down and rest during their trips! It was also great for getting out into the wilderness without having to worry about setting up a tent. Although a forward-thinking concept, the Wanderer had a short lifespan and relatively few were produced. It is believed that only five exist today.
This 120-inch wheelbase automobile has a six-cylinder engine with a displacement of 223.9 cubic-inches, producing 55 horsepower. The front seat is currently folded down to showcase its special feature. Come and peek into its windows to see this rare and wonderful example of what the Auburn Automobile Company was known for – innovation!
