MARMON AUTOMOBILES

The Marmon car was built in Indianapolis, by Nordyke & Marmon. The firm had produced flour-milling machinery for more than half a century before automobiles came along. Family scion Howard Marmon built their first car in 1902. This brilliant, highly regarded engineer would lead the Marmon car to worldwide fame and acceptance.

In 1911, the first Indianapolis 500 race was won by a Marmon "Wasp" racer. By the 'teens and '20s, a sporty Marmon was quite the proper car for any occasion. In 1931, the powerful and massive Marmon Sixteen was introduced. Although the last Marmon cars were built in 1933, the company went on to produce Marmon-Herrington 4-wheel drive conversions for decades.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

Purchased alongside the Packard 120 also found in the collection, this 1923 Marmon Model 34 Speedster carries the same distinction of hailing from the Harrah Collection. As such, the vehicle will be delivered with its Verification Certificate
Finished in a white and black two-tone paint scheme, this sporty Marmon exists in truly wonderful condition. It is unknown when the restoration took place, but it has held up remarkably well over the years. Even the top, with its diamond shaped windows appears with very little signs of aging. The matching black interior has remained in equally good condition and the wood on the dash and steering wheel are without major blemishes.

An attractive and sporty speedster such as this is sure to find a happy home by providing many miles of open motoring.
