Stationette (Apr, 1950)

Stationette is a three-wheel car with a simplified airplane construction. It has a four-cylinder water-cooled rear engine. Martin Develop. Co., Rochelle Park, N. J., hopes to sell the two-passenger auto under $1000.

    My father Bill Weiss owned this car. It was made almost entirely of wood. He had purchased it when he lived in Glendale, Queens, NY in the late 60’s or early 70’s. I have no idea from whom he bought the car. It was in a garage there until we (I was 2 at the time) moved to PA in 1976. There it sat in my father’s garage until the summer of 1988 when we moved and Dad sold off most of his antique cars; he donated the Martin Stationette to a museum. The car turned up again when it was sold on eBay for $12K in 2005. The Lane Motor Museum ended up with it and it is now fully restored. I never saw the Stationette run or drive, but it was in my father’s possession for around 20 years. I hope this helps shed a little light on this history of this rare automobile.
