Only one known to exist! Big 74 hp, has history going back to new.

 1925 Marmon went from the Model 34 to the new 74, named for the higher 74 horsepower. During 1925 and 1926, Marmon produced 120 Five Passenger Phaetons, this is the last surviving example. This car was purchased new in 1926 by Cebert Holmes, who owned department stores in California, and had already purchased a new 1925 Marmon Sedan a year earlier. Both cars were passed to Cebert Holmes, Jr. who also accumulated other classics. It was rarely seen and likely never left California because it had suffered a severe transmission failure decades ago and sat in a separate building on the Holmes estate. After the death of Cebert Holmes, Jr., at the age of 91, the current owners became only the second family to care for it. Before the dealer had originally sold this car, it was used on a beach club photo shoot in Santa Monica, California with swimsuit models.

Marmon produced several body styles, and in 1925 and 1926, and this is the only known surviving example of the type.

The Marmon Motor Car Company traces its roots to 1852 when the original company produced flour mill grinding equipment. They began producing cars featuring air cooled engines in 1902. Although their automobile production fell victim to the Great Depression, the company continued manufacturing automobile parts. They remain in business and the corporation is currently owned by Berkshire Hathaway.

Marmon is credited with introducing the rear-view mirror and known for their extensive use of aluminum in various components. The inaugural Indianapolis 500 was won by a Marmon Wasp in 1911.
