MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to present this elegant 1935 PierceArrow 845 sedan. PierceArrows were stately vehicles that commanded admiration and respect and had a price tag to match. Individuals who bought the most elite PierceArrows were those who were high on the social ladder and cost was not an issue.
Powering this car is a 385 cubic inch inline eightcylinder engine making 150 horsepower. Power is transferred to the rear wheels by a threespeed manual transmission. Drivers assist features include fourwheel vacuumassisted mechanical drum brakes. The suspension features a freewheeling solid front axle, a live rear axle with semielliptic leaf springs. The 17inch original exterior matching artillery wheels with chrome beauty rings and matching chrome Pierce 8 hub caps riding on Lester wide whitewall tires, complete the period look. Mechanical features included synchromesh transmission, safety glass in all windows and automatic choke.
This example is finished in a brilliant twotone combination of Maruna Red and Cliquot Tan. The front and rear chrome bumpers are tight and finish is exquisite. The hood is in very good condition, however, one of the latches on the passenger side is broken but closes securely and there is a twotothreeinch crack in the windshield near the middle. The grille is in very good condition as is the rear luggage carrier, equipped with a piece of period trunk luggage. The headlamps have period correct lenses and taillights are in very condition with no hazing or cracks. This Pierce has an stately appearance with hardtofind dual mounted spare tires with matching covers.
Inside, this Pierce features a newer, rich leather upholstery and its front and rear bench seats look great in this rich oxblood finish. The matching door panels, burgundy carpet and woodtrimmed dashboard are a continuation of the striking interior and look fantastic. The burgundy headliner completes the interior and is in very good condition. The speedometer and fuel gauge are inoperable but there is an oil temperature gauge mounted under the dash. The original PierceArrow steering wheel is in very good condition.
The PierceArrow Company launched in 1901 and by the late 1920s, experienced financial difficulties amid a changing marketplace. The company merged with Studebaker in 1928 and the results showed up in improved mechanics and styling. The merger had its benefits but by 1931, sales were in decline, as was the entire American luxury automobile market. By 1933, PierceArrow was back in private hands. The federal government assisted PierceArrow by purchasing two limousines with bulletproof glass for FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover. Pierce would go on to build just 875 cars that year. These cars really incorporated some of the greatest Art Deco elements into its styling, from the headlights to the bumpers to the long, decorative hood vents.
Examples of similar cars included Cadillacs, Packards, Lincolns, Auburns, Cords and Duesenbergs of the day.
PierceArrow catered to every demand and request, even keeping special colors on hand for important families and only using those colors for their vehicles and no others. Most of the vehicles were custom, including the carpets, luggage, trunks, and seats.PierceArrows were more than just a custom and exclusive automobile, they were also known for their quality, reliability, performance and sophistication...GET OUT AND DRIVE
