Martin Martinette
The Martin Development Laboratories
Rochelle Park, NJ
1948

During World War II James V. Martin invented and patented an airless tire, which he put on a dusted off version of his aluminum bodied 1932 Aerodynamic three wheeler.

Martin called his new American Automobile the Martinette. He planned to market this vehicle post world War II with a newly formed company called The Martin Development Laboratories that was located in Rochelle Park, NJ.

The 1948 Martin Martinette was a two passenger auto that created no big stir in the market. It did have some interesting features including magnetic fluid drive, aviator-cord spring suspension and an aluminum body.

The caption above reads - "Martinette of 1948 (above) became update of 1932 Aerodynamic (below) 3-wheeler." The Martinette was equipped with his new airless tire and a Hercules four cylinder engine.

The three wheel and four wheel Martin Aerodynamic were highly advanced American Automobile's designed and built by James V. Martin in the early 1930s. Some say they were Martin's crowning achievement. He also built the three wheel Martin Scootmobile (1922) and the Martin Dart Midget Car (1929-1930). In 1950 the Martinette evolved into the Stationette (1954). Other than the prototypes, none of these American Automobiles went into production.
