Roosevelt (automobile)

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Roosevelt 4-Door Sedan 1929
Roosevelt 4-Door Sedan 1929

Roosevelt was a brand of American automobile that was manufactured by the Marmon Motor Car Company of Indianapolis, Indiana, United States, during the 1929 and 1930 model years.[1]

The Roosevelt was named after President Theodore Roosevelt and designed to be priced as an "affordable" automobile.[2] The Roosevelt was the first automobile in America with a straight-eight engine to be priced under $1,000, with the sedan and coupe selling for $995.[3]

Although the Roosevelt name did not appear for the 1931 range of Marmon models, the car was refined into the new Model 70 Marmon.[1]

One of the unique features of the 29 Roosevelt was the horn button. It served 3 purposes. Push down and it would honk, pull up and it was the starter, and turn it, to turn the head lights on and off. It also had a cameo of Theodore Roosevelt, black and white, on the front top middle of the radiator.
