1931 Marmon Sixteen

 

Colonel Howard Marmon created a triumph of pattern making and foundry technology in aluminum castings which could be utilized to create the Marmon Sixteen engine. The Marmon Sixteen was a mechanical marvel of its era with an all aluminum sixteen-cylinder engine in a state of the art chassis. Producing 200 horsepower from its 491 cubic inch engine, the Marmon Sixteen was able to out accelerate a Duesenberg Model J at one third the price.

This Coupe is one of six examples known to exist and retains its original engine, chassis and LeBaron coachwork. Prior ownership is well documented by noted Marmon Sixteen historian Dyke Ridgely.
