Curt Schulze nearly bought a Cord, but when that didn’t work out, there came a long road of Auburns. He has been buying Auburn cars and amassing parts ever since. Cars have been purchased and restored, parted or resold, all the while documenting what the factory did. Each restoration has been from the frame out; every nut and bolt, knob and panel removed, restored and replaced. There is now a large archive of pictorial and actual original parts: fasteners to interior fabric samples, patterns and examples. There is also a ton of specific information in Curt’s head! That does not stop him from continually learning as he identifies new details.
The ACD Club identifies people with expertise in the Auburns, Cords and Duesenbergs to be technical advisors to others. Curt has been the club’s 1934 to 1936 Auburn contact for years and continues to take all questions about restoring these cars. Email firstname.lastname@example.org. Photos along with your inquiry are welcome and helpful.
