The General Motors Marksman originated in a Seversky proposal for an Army pursuit/scout which the US military didn't want.

It found an outlet as an export fighter, being produced mostly for Australia as the General Motors Marksman I (Model PA-132V).


The Marksman is part Grumman Avenger (engine and propeller shaft), part Douglas Dauntless (propeller blades, wing, central fuselage section and cockpit), part Seversky P-35 (rear cockpit and corresponding fuselage section), part Vultee V-1 (tail section) and even Douglas Skyraider (windshield). The panelling was altered and recreated in some places.
