MARION / USA

The MARION of Indianapolis started car production with an four-cylinder air - cooled engine in 1904. Later they added water cooled models.  Their best year was 1911 with 1,437 cars sold.
In 12 years they built a little bit more than 7,200 cars.
In 1915 the MARION became the MARION HANDLEY (see MARION - HANDLEY).

One of the most beautiful radiator emblems ever made was mounted on the 1914 MARION, showing the car itself.
 A very sought-after emblem.
