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"

Tips for Searching
The Keyword Search button allows you to perform a general search across multiple fields for any catalog records online. Keyword searches use OR as the default connector between words (e.g. a search for Hanley Ranch will return records associated with Hanley OR Ranch). If you want to find records where both keywords are found, type in AND between the two words. To search for a specific phrase, be sure to put the phrase within quotes (e.g. "Rocky Pine Ranch"). You can also use the asterisk (*) as a wildcard (e.g. a search for histor* would come up with records containing history, histories, historical, etc.). Searches are not case sensitive.
The Advanced Search button can help you be more specific with your search. You can search for a word or phrase within a particular search category or use multiple categories to further narrow down your search results. For example, searching White in the People field will bring up any records associated with a member of the White family, without having to sift through black & white photographs. You can also search People and Creator records through Advanced Search. Phrase searching with quotes and use of wildcards (*) are available in Advanced Search.
The Random Images button is a great way to just browse the collection. Each Random Images page displays a random assortment of images from the records online. If something piques your interest, click the thumbnail to view a larger version of the image.
Catalog Searches (Archives / Photos / Libraries / Objects)
The catalog buttons can also help narrow down your search, by only searching with a selected catalog. If you only want to search for Photos, click the Photos button and type in your keyword(s) or phrase. You can also browse records within that catalog without performing a search. Phrase searching, wildcards (*) as well as AND/OR statements are available when performing catalog searches.
