Description for Ford Other Pickups 1939

1939 Ford Marmon Herrington 1 Ton: Marmon-Herrington Incorporated was formed in Indianapolis, ndiana, n 1931 by Walter C. Marmon and Colonel Arthur W. Herrington. Marmon had worked with his brother Howard at the Marmon  Motor Car Company, ending to the business side of the firm while his sibling directed the engineering. The British-born Herrington had served in the U.S. Army where he worked on the development of all-wheel drive vehicles. The two  took over one of the plants of the faltering Marmon car company and began building 4x4 and 6x6 trucks for the Army. Herrington patented a novel drive system for the front wheels, sing constant velocity universal joints, hich became a  crucial part of their vehicles, hich were assembled units using Hercules engines. Company output included aircraft refueling trucks, obile machine shops, arrage balloon winch trucks, econnaissance trucks, rmored cars, cout cars  and wreckers. Some of the armored cars and scout cars had four-wheel steering. By 1935 they were selling to overseas customers in Persia and Saudi Arabia, nd developed a Ford-based tank for the US Army, s well as a trailer to  transport it. Designated the CTL-1, t was tested at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. The Army called it the Combat Train and it was quite successful, eading to the T-2 scout car for the Ordnance Department. That same year they began  converting Ford chassis for civilian markets, nitially 1-1/2 ton models. Their first light duty vehicles came in 1937, nd by 1939 there were some 56 different models of Marmon-Herrington Ford conversions. They were offered not only  as pickups and station wagons, ut also in chassis, take truck, anel truck, oupe, edan and sedan delivery form, hough only with 85 hp V8 engines. No production records are known to survive for Marmon-Herrington Fords. Since they  were essentially hand-built, ssembly rate was necessarily slow and output small, ven when demand surged during World War II. Marmon-Herrington aficionados report that only ten or a dozen of each year are known to exist.
