1931 Marmon Sixteen Convertible Sedan by LeBaron

The Marmon Sixteen is a masterpiece, a reflection of one man’s pursuit of perfection. Colonel Howard Marmon, an automotive pioneer, designed a remarkable vehicle that showcases his expertise in pattern-making and foundry technology. The car boasts a state-of-the-art chassis and a powerful all-aluminum V-16 engine that delivers 200 horsepower from over 490 cubic inches of displacement. Surprisingly, it can outperform a Duesenberg Model J but at only a third of the cost, making it an incredible performance bargain for its time, priced at $5,000.

Today, only 75 units of the Marmon Sixteen still exist. They are a testament to the ingenuity and performance of the Classic Era and stand among the most exceptional driving automobiles of their time.
