Sinshiem Auto Collection - American cars

Sinshiem museum had a large collection of American classic cars, with special focus on the 1950's.

Overview

Simplex - America La France ~ 1914/15

1915 Simplex

Stutz Bearcat ~1915

1937 Cord 812. My ultimate dream car. These magnificent, streamlined, front-wheel drive cars were truly ahead of their time and they paid the ultimate price. They were just too different from the rest of the pack and so were shunned by customers. Cord folded in 1940.

The stylish 1935 Auburn 851 roadster.

Auburn 851. Auburn actually owned Cord, along with the luxury car manufacturer Dusenburg.
