This 1931 Marmon Sixteen Coupe by LeBaron was having its engine rebuilt in 1978 when it was stolen, and the car's whereabouts were unknown for five years, until the Marmon Roster received a tip in December of 1983 which led to its recovery by authorities in New York State early the following year. The car was returned to Phil Mayer who reunited it with the original engine components. In 1987, the Sixteen left the original owner's family, legally, when it was sold to James Guerra of Perth Amboy, New Jersey. In 1989, ownership went to Gerry Lettieri and four years later was acquired through an East Coast broker by Jack Dunning, with whom it has now remained for over 25 years.

While in Mr. Dunning's care, the car was given a restoration between 1996 and 1997 by Glen Hatcher of Cambridge, Ohio. After the work was completed, it was finished in dark maroon with correct pinstriping color-matched to the wheels. It enjoyed a successful show career, including an AACA National First Prize and CCCA Senior Premier honors, the latter with two perfect 100-point scores. The car was also Best in Class at the Meadowbrook Concours d'Elegance in 1997. Its most recent honor was a win in the Senior Emeritus class in the CCCA Midwestern Grand Classic at the Glenmoor Gathering in Canton, Ohio, in 2011.

Built from 1931 through 1933, the pinnacle of Colonel Howard Marmon's engineering expertise, the Marmon Sixteen was a technological marvel. Extensive use of aluminum in the 491 cubic-foot, 200 horsepower V16 resulted in a more powerful engine than the competing Cadillac V16, while weighing over 300 pounds less. V16 bodies were designed by Walter Dorwin Teague and built for Marmon by LeBaron. They featured uncluttered lean simple lines, minimal trim, and functional but luxurious interiors. Total V16 production over the three years was 390 cars, of which approximately 75 are known to survive.
