The last Marmon Model 34 was produced. Based in Indianapolis, Marmon introduced the model 34 in 1916. It was of advanced design, displaced 5.6 litres and featured overhead valves. Further evidence of the model 34’s advance design was its use of aluminium; the cylinder block, transmission housing, differential, fenders and hood were made of aluminium.The company took a model 34 cross-country in 1916 in less than six days, beating the record established by ‘Cannon Ball’ Baker in a Cadillac by 41 hours. Factory price of the runabout was approximately $3,100.
