Marr Auto Car goes to Greenfield Village

_E6A7864

We had a great time taking the Marr Auto Car to the Ford Museum’s Greenfield Village for the 68th annual Old Car Fest.  This car was owned by The Henry Ford from 1936 to 1985.  Mr. Marr, my Great Grandfather, produced his car after his first stint with David Buick and returning as Chief Engineer of the Buick Motor Car Company.  The car was built by Fauber Manufacturing in Elgin, IL.  The plant burned down in 1903 and ended the companies future.

The car still starts on the first crank and runs faster than you want to go.
