Title The Auburn Touring Car
Collection John Martin Smith Miscellaneous Collection
Summary This pamphlet is titled: "The Auburn Touring Car." There is a picture of the car on the front cover. Inside is a two page spread giving praising the Touring Car. "Never has closed car neatness, beauty, comfort and convenience been more nearly approached in an open model than in this Auburn Touring." There are pictures of some of the features of the Touring Car: the side curtains, the roomy front compartment, the windshield equipped with "built-in wings" and rear of the car.
The next page: "A Graceful and Engaging Touring Car" "The touring car is the most utilitarian in the whole line of Auburn cars, yet it has been built with a grace and charm that places it among the finest motor car in appearance and style." "The car is delightful to the feminine members of the family… Yet with all its feminine appeal the Auburn is a big, full powered masculine car that will do anything the most exacting driver can ask of it."
The next page gives the Body Specifications of 6-63 Touring Model.
The back page "A Name that Means Something"-"For nearly a quarter of a century, cars that are decidedly more than good have carried the Auburn name." "The Auburn aim constantly has been, not to build the car down to a price, but to give it greater comfort with each succeeding year." "Probably a greater step towards the perfection which the Auburn builders have in mind has been taken in the present Auburn models than in any previous year."
The bottom of the page has a stamp for the" Pierpoint Motor Co., Philadelphia PA." The bottom corner has "Form 55 - 1923"
