A Rare 1927 Marmon Found In A Barn



A rare and probably un-heard of car was recently found in Illinois after sitting in storage more than 50 years. The 1927 Marmon Model L that was recovered may be the only one left in existence. If you haven’t heard of the brand, Marmon Motor Car Company was an independent company back in the 1920s.

The company faded during the great depression and no other cars were produced, which is why this only two-door Model L is so rare. It was owned by Marmon enthusiast Kent Cherpeske (Chirp-es-kee) but after he passed away this year, his brother discovered it and contacted the Marmon Owner’s Cub who will take and restore it. You can see the full video of the find at PowerNationTV.com

This week on PowerNation Katie’s featured ride is a rare 1969 Pontiac GTO Judge. Owner Bill Stovall got it from a salvage yard 18 years ago and did a total frame off restoration back to like factory new. Only 58 came with the Ram Air-4 engine with automatic transmission. That classic color is “Carousel Red” with an interior as stock as it came with black bucket seats, an AM radio, no power seats or power brakes. As Bill says “This is a muscle car that takes muscle to drive”. Along with the tech from our four shops, Team Summit NHRA Funny Car racer Tim Wilkerson has a tech tip on relays. Check it all out this week on PowerNation.

And from all of us here at the Tech Center we wish you a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and Happy NewYear!!
