Auburn Rear End. The Auburn Automobile Company grew out of the Eckhart Carriage Company, it was founded in Auburn, Indiana, in 1875 by Charles Eckhart (1841-1915). Eckhart's sons, Frank and Morris, began making automobiles on an experimental basis before entering the business in earnest, absorbing two other local car makers and moving into a larger plant in 1909. The enterprise was modestly successful until materials shortages during World War I forced the plant to close.
This intimate image of a classic Auburn Automobile rear end was made at Sam Packs warehouse in Dallas, Texas where he houses most of his classic automobile collection.
