The Model 34 is now, I believe, a recognized Full Classic, which helps with value.  The last one I see advertised for sale was a restored on in the UK for $76K, in 2014.  I would think this one would go for somewhat less that that, as it is obviously weathered. 

 

Marmon's were top of the line cars.  Am sure it will find a good home....

That is not a convertible sedan, it's a seven passenger touring car. They are nice cars and fun to drive. There was a very nice one for sale not too long ago, it brought about half of what I expected it to go for. The condition was about the same to a little bit better than this one appears in the photos. They are one of the better drivers from this era. I would take it over a V-8 Cadillac of the same year.

So what do I not know? What am I missing? This car SOLD for $29,101.00. Seems more then double what a car in this condition would bring. I know Marmon in 1920 had 80 horsepower. Did this one as well?

I believe the Model 34 was the Big Boy of the Marmons in that era.  It all depends on what the buyer wants to do with the car.  If he lovingly restores it at home, and does a lot of the work himself, he should be OK.  If he sends it to a restoration shop, of course he'll be in the bucket before they get through taking it apart.  Or, an option is to go through it mechanically, clean it up, new tires, and drive it as is for fun. 

 

Lots of options with this car, and open nice Classics are hard to come by for less than 30K....even needing work....

yes 29k was on the high side for this car.

 

one sold here a short time back for a good bit less and was in better shape.

 

20k was all the $ for this car....................... my opinion.

I'm sure a lot of people would agree with you.  The problem is that falling in love is often more expensive than one would think....and obviously someone is in love with it, good for them!
