  10. 1923 Marmon 34B 2-Passenger Speedster - One of Six Known **Power, style and rarity for half the price of Packard or Caddy** AMELIA ISLAND 2015 TO FEATURE "SPEEDSTERS" Excellent older restoration from long-time Vermont family ownership. This unique and exceptional Marmon Speedster was acquired by the Goyette family during the 1970s from the Brookline, MA Larz Andersen Museum and used for touring and local events in the northeast. Upon Mr. Goyette's passing approximately five years ago, son Mark Goyette thoroughly serviced the vehicle whereupon it was sold to the current Vermont owner (Mark operates Goyette Restorations,a highly regarded Bennington, VT facility). Set in an impressive soft pale yellow with nicely contrasting black fenders and splash aprons and red wire wheels, and new black leather seats and black grain top. Vehicle has the usual nicks and blemishes yet presents extremely well with good finish to the paint and plating. Runs strong with excellent brakes and smooth gear change. Cruises comfortably at 55-65 MPH. Over six-feet? No problem even with the top up! Long hood, cozy cabin and rear mount spare establishes an imposing appearance. A comfortable and powerful touring car ideal for any concours or tour, and potentially eligible for the CCCA's contemplated extension of manufacturing years and models before to 1925. According to the Marmon Club, this example is one of only six accounted for. How often does a big displacement two-passenger speedster with a race-bred history in this price range come to market?! Located in Vermont and priced at $89,500. Please email for further details. ANOTHER MARMON 34B SPEEDSTER SOLD IN APRIL AT THE H&H AUCTION AT THE IMPERIAL WAR MUSEUM FOR $91,200. IT CONTAINED A NUMBER OF NON-ORIGINAL COMPONENTS AND SOLD OUTSIDE ITS NATIVE MARKET. THE MARMON UNDER OFFER HERE THEREFORE REPRESENTS AN OUTSTANDING VALUE TO ANYONE SEEKING TO ACQUIRE ONE OF THESE CHERISHED EXAMPLES! Marmon History is Rich in Performance and Innovation The 19th century Indianapolis-based wagon maker Nordyke Marmon followed many of its peers by making a giant leap into the horseless carriage business shortly after the turn of the century. The company had the good fortune to be led by the Stanford-educated engineering genius, Howard Marmon. From the beginning of their auto production in 1905, until the end at the depths of the Great Depression in 1933, Marmon was known for expensive sporting cars of advanced engineering and design. Most famously was the Marmon Wasp, driven by Ray Harroun who won the inaugural 1911 Indy 500 pioneering the use of rear view mirrors and eliminating the need for a riding spotter/mechanic. The 1917 Marmon model 34 was the company's most successful commercial effort, and enjoyed a production run of 10 years, a testament to how advanced a car it was during the time of its introduction. It was well accepted by the affluent and demanding customers of the day. The Model 34 makes extensive use of aluminum, the bodywork was integrated to the chassis design to be stress-bearing and the engine was an advanced overhead valve inline six of 340 cubic inches. The Marmon 34 weighed just 3,295 lbs and could travel at 80 MPH. Marmon's Model 34 set a high standard for long distance performance and held the Trans-continental speed record, which proved to be a popular marketing tool. Another marketing effort was Marmon's attempt to win a U.S. Army contract to furnish the Model 34 for use in Europe during WWI, which took place in Marfa, TX. A number of Model 34s were shipped to Fort D.A. Russell where they were tested in the rugged Big Bend terrain. They were then driven to Washington, DC and remarkably burned no oil and experienced no serious breakdowns. A model 34 was driven coast-to-coast to beat Erwin "Cannonball" Baker's record. Marmon's swan song was its fabulous V16, built from 1931-33 which was arguably the most sophisticated multi-cylinder engine of the era.
  11. This 1960 Buick LeSabre convertible has been the subject of a no-expense-spared restoration to show standards. It is currently offered for sale by a long-time AACA member and collector of 20 prize-winning vehicles. Originally a well-maintained South Carolina vehicle, this Buick was rust free allowing all original panels to be restored to as new condition. All die-cast was removed and re-plated by Librandi’s Plating of Middletown, Pennsylvania. Concours level paint in Titian Red metallic. Interior, trunk, top and rear window are all new and faithful to the original pattern, material and construction. All interior metal—horn escutcheon, window and door handles, arm rests and A pillar trim—was removed and re-plated as new. The interior also has an NOS Buick accessory tissue dispenser with original box. Highly detailed engine bay and the attention to restoration detail is evident throughout with correct decals and instruction tags placed as per original. The jack and related jack hardware, and even the hood springs, have been meticulously restored to their proper finishes. National First Place and AACA Senior Award 2013 Hershey Fall Meet. This car must be seen to be appreciated! Asking $59,500. I am selling on behalf of a Hershey region owner. Please email for further details: eric@pixacar.com SEE EBAY LISTING
