Touring
Chassis #: C85291
Sold for $60,500 at 2009 Pebble Beach Auction : Gooding & Company.
The overhead-valve Marmon inline six-cylinder engine was introduced in 1916. It was well engineered and would remain in use for over a decade. The engine, body and chassis of the Marmon utilized alloy construction to save weight.

This Model 34C has had five owners since new, but little is known about this car. The previous owner purchased the car in Maryland in the 1970s and when its current owner acquired it in 2006, it was reputed to have traveled a mere 30,000 miles from new.

Since that time, the car has been given a professional restoration with many of the mechanical components being rebuilt. This car is one of only three or four known to exist.

The car is powered by a 343 cubic-inch overhead valve six-cylinder engine with a single updraft carburetor offering 84 horsepower. There is a three-speed selective gearbox and two-wheel mechanical drum brakes.

In 2009, this Marmon was offered for sale at Gooding & Company's Auction in Pebble Beach. The lot was estimated to sell for $65,000 - $75,000 and offered without reserve. As bidding came to a close, the lot had been sold for the sum of $60,500, inclusive of buyer's premium.
