The na­me of Auburn co­mes from the agri­cul­tu­ral area of In­dia­na, USA, whe­re this brand was born. Char­les Eck­hart, a German mi­grant, was wor­king at Stu­de­ba­ker ca­rria­ge fac­tory. He later mo­ved to Auburn and foun­ded Eck­hart Ca­rria­ge Com­pany, in 1875. Old Eck­hart re­ti­red in 1893 and the bu­si­ness was pas­sed to his sons Frank and Mo­rris. They be­gan to ma­ke au­to­mo­bi­les in an ex­pe­ri­men­tal way. They foun­ded Auburn Au­to­mo­bi­le Com­pany in 1900 and their first car was laun­ched in 1904. Cord sold his sha­re in Au­gust 1937. The new ow­ners de­ci­ded to stop the pro­duc­tion of cars and ma­ke air con­di­tio­ning parts ins­tead.
