A 1936 Auburn Boattail Convertible is always worth talking about, even when Cars On Line sees buyers and sellers from all over the world. The Cars On Line Inspection Service has become a necessity for many car buyers. One of the things we always preach is to have an inspection done before you buy. Don’t buy sight unseen!
Some classic cars are so awe-inspiring, so prolific that their shadows stretch across time to influence the collector market for generations to come. The 1936 Auburn Boattail Convertible is such a car, and it’s easy to see why it’s been the subject of many replications. There can be a lot of incorrect information that creeps into these kinds of transactions though, which is why a potential buyer decided to get an inspection done of the beautifully done 1936 Auburn Boattail Convertible seen here. Our inspector found that the manufacturer plate indicated it was made by Antique Autos of America in Largo, Florida in 1980. They used a mid-70’s full-size Buick rear wheel drive vehicle and modified a 1970 era Buick rolling chassis. The original equipment side rails were removed and replaced by boxed steel rails to strengthen the length alteration, which also utilized cross members and cosmetic changes to accommodate the new body. The inspector also found that the convertible top is a sun shade, and is not weather-tight. Click here to see all 50 photographs included in the sample report!
