Technical specifications, photos and description:
The flip side of the coin is that underneath it is 100% restored. Noted restorer Jim Capaldi completely rebuilt the chassis. including the engine. transmission. rear end. suspension. brakes. and exhaust. so mechanically. this is a new car in almost every measurable way. It runs almost silently. and as I said. performance on the road is extremely impressive. If there was ever a Marmon factory hot rod. this might be it.
The interior is nicely preserved. with the leather showing its age. but certainly still presentable and usable as-is. and in line with the cosmetic condition of the rest of the car. All the original gauges appear to be functional. and the steering. brakes. and transmission are a pleasure to operate. The rumble seat is in excellent condition. and the trunk is nicely preserved. I might try to source a floor mat or some carpet for the front seat area. since I don't believe it was originally bare wood. and if I were going to use it for touring. I would consider replacing the top. which is most certainly original and somewhat brittle.
This is an unusual. powerful. fast. reliable and fully sorted tour car that will get a lot of attention just because of its honest presentation. It's wonderful on the open road where the big straight-8 can stretch its legs. It hails from a large collection of Marmons owned by a marque expert. so I have a lot of confidence in its abilities and presentation. A neat. fun open car with eight cylinders and sidemounts--what could be better? I have driven this car maybe three times. 10 miles at most. It has been maintained. and nothing has changed since I bought the car.
