Auction Block: 1948 Ford Marmon-Herrington Super Deluxe Station Wagon

Dec 11, 2019

Category: Rides

Typically, when people think of classic off-roaders, it’s things like the Ford Bronco, Jeep CJ, and International Scout that come to mind. However, if you look even further back in history, there are a couple of rare gems that predate those comparatively-modern classics. And one of them, a Ford Marmon-Herrington Super Deluxe Station Wagon, is up for auction.

As far back as 1937, Ford’s station wagons were being converted to AWD by Marmon-Herrington. Like its brethren, this wood-paneled 1948 example comes complete with a reinforced chassis, full-time four-wheel-drive, and a modified rear axle/differential — before being sold for a seemingly-paltry $4,000 each. This one, however, has benefitted from a complete and comprehensive restoration, has only 600 miles on the odometer since the work was done, and is in absolutely impeccable condition. As such, it should be expected to see this historically-significant off-roader go for a good deal more than its original price when it hits the block at the Arizona RM Sotheby’s auction this coming January.
