MARMON ROOSEVELT

MARMON  ROOSEVELT radiator emblem

Imagine FORD or GM is showing the portrait of Clinton, Bush or Obama on the radiator in 2013. 
Unbelievable. But in 1929 it was possible. Here you see the President of the UNITED STATES:  THEODORE ROOSEVELT.
And no, it was not a real success but it was the first straight eight for less than $ 1,000.
In 1931 it became the Model 70 MARMON.

Dimensions4.6 x  3.8 cm
Year1929 - 1930

    1. I´m using the most soft steel wool you can buy: 00 and add a soft cleaner.
