The Marmon Model 34C was introduced

Thursday 31st August 1922

The Marmon Model 34C was introduced. Marmons were produced in Indianapolis from 1903 to 1933. The Model 34 was first introduced in 1916 featuring an in-line overhead valve six with a cylinder block and most components made of aluminum. The advanced design of the Model 34 featured ‘unification construction’ making the body and chassis nearly one – an early version of unibody construction. Weight distribution was an ideal 50-50 front-to-rear,. Instruments were placed in a single cluster with indirect night lighting, one of many features that is taken for granted today. Marmon dominated the speedy car niche of American automobiles for nearly three decades. The inaugural Indy 500 was won by a Marmon ‘Wasp.’
