The first Maudslay chassis with the Marathon name was the ML5 of 1937 with Maudslay petrol or Gardner oil engine. The 17'7" wheelbase Marathon II from 1946 also used the petrol engine, coupled to a Maudslay 5-speed gearbox. The Marathon III announced in October 1946 featured the AEC A173 7.7 litre diesel engine and AEC D124 4-speed sliding mesh gearbox, a specification similar to the AEC Regal I which would effectively see the Marathon off a year or two after Maudslay Motors became part of the ACV group of companies. In 1950 Marathon III's wheelbase was lengthened from 17'6" to 19'3" to accommodate 30' bodywork.
