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. This particular Marmon is an early production model with the unique “Cloverleaf” configuration with two compact front bucket seats and just two doors; together with its special front-to-rear access pathway the layout resembled a cloverleaf when viewed from above. 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. Open to offers! Trades considered—WHAT HAVE YOU?

  5. I am trying to get the 1927 Marmon Model L back to reliable driver, I have installed a 6V positive ground fuel pump - I think it may work too well. When I shut off the car the updraft carb begins dribbling gas out of the bottom of the car - not the biggest problem but... the exhaust pipe is directly below. Today as the car got hot, it stalled on the road. Because I had mounted the fuel pump switch under the seat, I have to get out to shut it off. the carb just POURED gas that immediately vaporized - just a little bit of a fire hazard. Is this because of the pump - what shoud I do??. After this the car was very hard to start - I had to push the air valve on the Schebler carb open and crank the starter from under the hood - easier done than said, just pull the levr - It fired but was very uneven idle and harder to rev up, sputtering and coughing then finally running right, jumped in and headed home. died at the next full stop and went through it all again. finally got it home ( I was only a couple of miles away) letting it cool now. I ran a soft copper fuel line from the pump to the carb, it sits about two inches from the exhaust pipe - could this be causing a vapor lock or boiling the gas?? It is right next to and farther from the exhaust than the original line. I feel a bit out of my mechanical league..Any suggestions???
  6. I need help identifying Marvin "Buck" Barrow's 1929 Marmon Sedan. His widow claimed it was a "Model 98" but cannot find any such car. The MOTOR NUMBER for this car was T-8692, 1933 Texas license tag 279-797. It was left behind by the Barrow gang in Joplin, Missouri after a shoot-out in 1933 with police, that left two police officers dead. Clyde, Buck Barrow, along with Blanche Barrow and Bonnie Parker escaped in a stolen 1932 Ford B-400 convertible. I suspect this car was either a Model 68 or Model 78. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
