An outstanding 1929 Duesenberg Model J LeBaron Dual Cowl Phaeton and duo of iconic Indy 500 racecars set to lead the field at Worldwide Auctioneers’ The Auburn Auction.

Those making the annual journey to Auburn, Indiana, this Labor Day Weekend, can look forward to a vibrant assortment of motorcars at Worldwide Auctioneers’ much expanded event, The Auburn Auction. The company’s premier catalogue auction of 80 exceptional automobiles will this year serve as “The Main Event” and climax to an expanded three day sale, running from September 2nd through September 4th, 2010.

Presented as one of the highlights of “The Main Event” is an outstanding 1929 Duesenberg J LeBaron Dual Cowl Phaeton, ACD certified Category 1 and ready to show. It will be joined on stage by a further assortment of great pre-war automobiles, including another ACD certified and fully restored 1935 Auburn 851 SC Boattail Speedster, a fine 1934 Packard Twelve 1108 Coupe, itself a CCCA premier winner, and a grand 1933 Marmon Sixteen Victoria Coupe, a class winner at Pebble Beach. For those preferring sporty to stately, also slated to go under the hammer is a superb 1968 Lamborghini Miura P400, the subject of a meticulous restoration with full SV updates.

Indy 500 enthusiasts can look forward to a very rare opportunity to bid on a duo of iconic racecars. Firstly, a 1952 Kurtis 500A Roadster, the # 34 Automobile Shippers Special, number two of four built, a fully documented original with race history, presented in its 1952 livery. This historic racecar will be presented along with the first roadster-style Indy 500 racer constructed by A.J. Watson with Jud Phillips, the 1954 Watson Indy Roadster/Phillips-Bob Estes Special.

“We look forward to welcoming friends and fellow enthusiasts back to Auburn,” said John Kruse, Managing Partner. “We promise you a great weekend of superior automobiles and a level of service and commitment second to none. We are delighted to continue to play a key role in Auburn’s evolution at the heart of this great industry.”

It incorporates “More Great Cars,” which will run daily beginning 10AM Thursday through Saturday, with 150 cars going under the hammer each day. “The Main Event” is scheduled for the evening of Saturday, September 4th at 6PM and will as usual be limited to 80 exceptional motorcars.
