Style and speed were perfectly matched together in the Boattail body style. It lasted until the mid-1930s as the Great Depression dragged on. Cars today lack that distinctive, pointed tail of the true Boattail style which will never be matched.
The Boattail rear end will be facing outward in the exhibit - it includes one of the earliest known Boattail bodies, and many other significant makes and models including, of course, Auburn, Cord, and Duesenberg.
This temporary exhibit will open November 10 and be available free with admission.
