Vintage Snapshots: ’65-’66 Marlins In The Real World

I hope none of you have high hopes for a second serving of Marlins in the real world. There just aren’t many photos of these out there, as the Marlin was a notorious sales dud. I’m honestly surprised I managed to find these few at all. But even if they’re a scant four images, I thought it was a good enough amount to share.

They all highlight the car’s most distinctive styling feature, the fastback. Ungainly as that feature was to most, it appears to have had its fans. A family happily poses next to one in this gallery, and that’s no fake love. Prove that even the oddest of birds can find some acceptance if given enough time.
