Condition & Features

Gateway Classic Cars of St. Louis is proud to offer a very rare 1932 Marmon 16. Founded in 1902 by 23 year old Howard Marmon: Marmon was an American Automobile manufacturer based out of Indianapolis Indiana. It was a Marmon Wasp which took first place in the very first Indianapolis 500 race in 1911 out of a field of 40 racers. A few years later in 1931 Marmon introduced an amazing automobile: the Marmon 16. This was to be direct competition for the Cadillac V16. Cadillacs V16 churned out an impressive for the time 165 Horsepower. This was however dwarfed by Marmons 8.1 Liter all aluminum 16 cylinder powerhouse which created 200 horsepower. These 16 cylinder vehicles were built on an impressive 145 inch wheelbase which offered a great platform for quality coachwork. Only about 390 examples of the 16 cylinder cars were made between 1931 and 1933 and they carried a hefty price tag around $5000. The vehicle was beautifully crafted and well ahead of its time mechanically especially because of their use of aluminum. To test build quality and performance all Marmon chassis were run around the Indianapolis race track with a driver sitting on a folding chair. Each chassis had to top 100 MPH before being sent off to the coach builder. The one flaw which lead to Marmons ultimate demise was the fact that Cadillacs V16 was released 2 years prior to the Marmon 16. This head start jump started Cadillacs sales enough to propel them through the Great Depression which Marmon did not survive. This particular example is a 5 passenger sedan which is fully enclosed. This imposing automobile offers a great amount of presence especially finished in jet black. The car was painted in 1998 in black with a subtle cream pinstripe from front to back. The pinstripe matches perfectly with the cream colored wire wheels. Quite the wheels these are: 18 in diameter with a set of massive wide white wall tires wrapping all 6 wheels. The two spare wheels fit snuggly on each fender and
