Martin Aerodynamic- 1928
The Martin, despite vigorous promotion, never went beyond three prototypes. Before you is a one-of-a-kind aerodynamic vehicle built by Martin Aircraft Company of Garden City, New York. Martin’s concept was to create a four-seater streamlined car along jaray principles. Notice the pontoon-shaped underbody, fully covered rear wheels, and a deep-sloping front with the body tapering toward the rear. It is powered by a 4 cylinder, water cooled rear engine and has airplane-type suspension–which means no springs. The aluminum body has one door that opens into the back seat. The Martin was presented at the 1932 National Automobile Show in New York but the Great Depression was detrimental to the Martin.
