Cars and trucks are grouped together under the large expanse of the Auburn buildings. The open skylights and windows allow for decent viewing on the upper level.
The main draw for me were the trucks scattered on the main floor and in the basement. None were more colorful than this restored 1936 Ford Model 68 Coca-Cola truck.
Quirky offerings the day that we visited included vehicles such as 1931 Twin Coach and a 1970 Checker Aerbus.
Do you like 4x4s? Check out this 1958 Studebaker 3E6 4x4 truck.
While looking at this 1911 Kirsch that has been painted to resemble a police paddy wagon I had visions of the Keystone Cops running through my head.
Did you know Buick built trucks? This was Buick's first truck. It is a 1910 Buick Model 2.
Other early model trucks on display included a 1919 Vim Type S21, 1918 Oneida Model C, and a 1911 IHC Auto Wagon Model A.
Tanker trucks on display included this 1950 GMC FC-253 converted into a propane truck and this 1948 Diamond T Model 306.
When at a car show or a museum, Peg and I always like to come up with what our favorite vehicle was. Rarely do we ever agree but this time it happened. Our favorite of the museum was the 1941 Crosely 390 pickup towing a mini dozer.
The National Auto and Truck Museum in Auburn, IN is a nice low-key museum to spend a couple of hours at browsing their collection. It may not be as fancy as its high class neighbor, Auburn Cord Duesenberg Museum, but you still do not want to pass it up.
