The Marvel Motor Car Co.
Detroit, MI
1907

The Marvel Motor Car Company produced in 1907 an American Automobile. The factory for the $800.00 Marvel was located at 284-290 Rivard St in Detroit, Michigan. Due to financial troubles and a lack of sales only a small two passenger runabout was made in 1907 only. The Marvel was powered by a two cylinder horizontal engine with a planetary transmission and was chain driven.

J. C. Foster was The Marvel Motor Car Company general manager and William A. Phister is superintendent. Production plans were 325 Marvels in 1907. The company declared bankrupcy in the fall of 1907 with $40,000.00 in liabilties and $4,000.00 in assets.
