The Auburn Cord Duesenberg Automobile Museum’s 10th annual benefit extravaganza is scheduled for Thursday, September 3, and will feature the auction of three vehicles as part of the fund-raiser for the museum’s education program. The evening will have an aviation theme.
“This event allows the museum to share its history, create awareness of its financial needs, and celebrate with its supporters each year,” said Laura Brinkman, executive director and chief executive of the ACD museum.“This year, we celebrate vintage aviation and its connection to the Auburn Automobile Company and Cord Corporation.“
Crossing the block at a live auction will be a 1987 Jaguar XJ6 with just over 106,000 miles; an Indy race car shell built by Dallara Automobili of Parma, Italy, and formerly used for display and as a driving simulator; and a 1957 Ford Thunderbird with removable “porthole” top and updated air conditioning.
