  I purchased this Marmon  some time last year. from a great seller named Matt from a Vintage car company in Cleveland. This the description he wrote about the car.  I hope he does not mind. I will send him something nice. Here is his great desrcription.  This neat 1929 Marmon Model 68 roadster offers straight-8 power in a package not much bigger than a Model A. so performance is entertaining to say the least. The owner believes that the bodywork. paint. interior. and top are all original. and I'm inclined to agree. except that perhaps it has been repainted once. long ago. Regardless. it has an awesome original patina to it that I would not change one bit. Chrome and nickel plating are good for its age. but not to show standards of course. but again. the condition is appropriate to the car. It presents well and has an honesty about it that it quite appealing.

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.
