Marmon Motor Car Company was an American automobile manufacturer founded by Howard Marmon and owned by Nordyke Marmon & Company of Indianapolis. Indiana. USA. It was established in 1902 and was merged and renamed in 1933. They produced cars under the Marmon brand. It was succeeded by Marmon-Herrington and later the Marmon Motor Company of Denton. Texas. The name currently survives through the Marmon Group of Chicago. Illinois.

Marmon's parent company was founded in 1851 manufacturing flour grinding mill equipment. and branching out into other machinery through the late 19th century. Small limited production of experimental automobiles began in 1902. with an air-cooled V-twin engine. An air-cooled V4 followed the next year. with pioneering V6 and V8 engines tried over the next few years before more conventional straight engine designs were settled upon. Marmons soon gained a reputation as a reliable. speedy upscale car.

The Model 32 of 1909 spawned the Wasp. winner of the first Indianapolis 500 motor race. This car featured the world's first known automobile rear-view mirror.

New models were introduced for 1924. replacing the long-lived Model 34. but the company was facing financial trouble. and in 1926 was reorganized as the Marmon Motor Car Co. In 1929. Marmon introduced an under-$1. 00 straight-8 car. the Roosevelt. but the stock market crash of 1929 made the company's problems worse. Howard Marmon had begun working on the world's first V16 engine in 1927. but was unable to complete the production Sixteen until 1931. By that time. Cadillac had already introduced their V-16. designed by ex-Marmon engineer Owen Nacker. Peerless. too. was developing a V16 with help from an ex-Marmon engineer. James Bohannon. Marmon discontinued automobile production in 1933. the worst year of the Great Depression. Our Ebay Policies:
