1931 Marmon Sixteen Limousine by LeBaron
Offered by Mecum | Monterey, California | August 18-20, 2022
Howard Marmon’s Marmon Motor Car Company was in trouble in 1931 when they launched the Sixteen, which had been in development since 1927. The timing was certainly bad, but the company found the resources to produce the Sixteen for three years before production of cars stopped.
The 8.0-liter V16 was rated at 200 horsepower and made the car one of the best American cars you could buy in 1931. Right there with V16 Cadillacs, big Packards, and Duesenbergs. This car wears limousine coachwork by LeBaron with seating for seven. It’s said to be the only limo example with dividing privacy glass left.
Less than 400 Sixteens were built across three years of production. This car has been a part of a few big collections over the years, and you can read more about it here.
Update: Sold $451,000.
