I've not seen that one before, I'll be interested to find out what it is, but I'd agree M-H is the most likely source, maybe on Ford components.

It is the right period for the Quartermaster Corps own 'Standard Fleet' but has none of their touches that I can see, except maybe headlamps and tow hooks.  If it was Standard Fleet I'd expect a big hallmarked USA radiator, for a start.


It is left hand drive though, notice the single external mirror.  I think the very narrow body / cowl gives the impression the steering may be on the other side.

Everyone is right, and some of you are a little wrong too with some of the comments. This is indeed a Marmon-Herrington, but it is by no means a small one. This 1933 A30S-4 4x4 reconnaissance car, built for the Persian Army, was rated at 3 to 3-1/2 tons ! It not only carried personel but there was also room for a motorcycle. Brian Kelly had this 1st. The page below is from the M-H brochure "Ten Years Before Pearl Harbor".

Sergey, I got your email, I'll get you an answer tomorrow.

Marmon-Herrington B-40S-4P is very similar, but latest vehicle.

Sergey, that is very interesting, I had not seen that ad before. These are most certainly different photos of the same vehicle, even the stains on the building in the background match. It was not uncommon for M-H to use older photos in their ads, in some cases the trucks in the ads were 10 years old when the ad appeared ! I'm curious where you got the info on the year. According to "the Marmon Heritage", the B model was not introduced until 1938, as "as a refinement of the A series". The C model followed in 1939, with the D series introduced in 1940 as near as I can tell. Don't try to apply any of this to the Ford conversions, their model designations were completely different.

Thanks for the neat ad.

I took it from Walter Miller story on eBay several years ago. Marmon-Herrington B Series was introduced in 1935 year, as writes Commercial Car Journal from july 1935.
