1931 Marmon Model 16 Convertible Coupe / 16144652 Chassis Information

1931 Marmon Model 16
Convertible Coupe
Coachwork: LeBaron
Chassis #: 16144652
Engine # 16513
Sold for $1,210,000 at 2016 Gooding & Company : Pebble Beach.
The Marmon Sixteen had Art Deco styling with a bold grille in the front which was composed of horizontal bars. The body had a straight beltline that was elegant and simple. During the three-year production run of all Sixteen body styles, it is estimated that 365 to 370 examples were produced, and it is believed that fewer than 40 of those were Convertible Coupes. Just eight examples of this body style survive today.

The history of this car begins around 1946, when Charles W. Bishop of New Haven, Connecticut, was its owner. It was still in his possession during the summer of 1955, when its mileage was noted at 30,000 in an article by the Classic Car Club of America. In January 1965, Vernon Jarvis of Decatur, Illinois, acquired the car, after which it passed among four owners, finally becoming part of noted San Francisco enthusiast Owen Hoyt's collection in 1973.

By 1985, the restoration Marmon was part of the Matt and Barbara Browning collection of Ogden, Utah. Richard Paine's Seal Cove Auto Museum in Maine acquired the car in a multi-car trade with the Brownings in 1990. The current caretaker acquired the car in 2002, who embarked on a no-expense spared restoration.

This car is finished in soft green and has an olive green leather interior. It made its restoration debut at the 2003 Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance where it was awarded a First in Class trophy.
This car has a tan convertible top, chrome grille, wire wheels, and side-mounted tire covers.
