Marmon-Herrington was incorporated in 1931 in Indianapolis. The company took over the old Duesenberg assembly plant and started making 4x4 and 6x6 vehicles for the army. In 1946, after WWII, the company refocussed on building consumer cars in collaboration with Ford and Mercury. The result of which are these beautiful wood-bodied wagons. The production of these woodies lasted two years with records showing that only 1,889 Mercury Marmon-Herringtons were ever built.
You may think that 1/1,889 is rare, but the reality is even more incredible. To this day only 3 Mercury Marmon-Herringtons are known to exist, and this is one of them.
