Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Marendaz Special cars were made in Brixton Road, London SW9, England from 1926 to 1932 and in Maidenhead, Berkshire, England from 1932 to 1936. DMK (Donald Marcus Kelway) Marendaz served as an apprentice at Siddeley-Deasy before the first World War. He left to join the Royal Flying Corps in 1916 training as a pilot and serving in France until invalided out in 1918 with the rank of lieutenant. After 1918 he joined Alvis, but was sacked and shortly afterwards moved to start Marseel with a Mr Seelhaft, a company making gearboxes for the Emscote car. Emscote didn't take all the gearboxes they made so the surplus were used with Coventry-Simplex engines to make complete cars. The company changed its name to Marseal in 1923 when Seelhart left. Between 1920 and 1925 when Marseal failed as many as 1200 cars might have been made in the Coventry factory.show more
