Overview

1919 Pierce-Arrow Series 31

Price: USD $139,500


The earliest known owner of this Pierce-Arrow Series 31 four-passenger roadster was Joe W. Buttress of South Pasadena California for whom a 1930 registration is included in the file. According to an affidavit on file the car was then partially dismantled and put in storage with George Metcalf of Los Angeles until 1952. That year Mr. Metcalf sold the Pierce for $800 to Ray Nelson a very early Southern California collector and enthusiast in whose large museum this car would remain for the rest of his life. Additional registrations for Mr. Nelsons ownership as well as photographs of the car as found and numerous invoices and receipts are included in the file. It was shown in his care at the Pierce-Arrow Societys West Coast Meet in the early 1960s having been cosmetically refinished and mechanically rebuilt.In 1978 the car was sold from the Nelson estate to longtime Pierce-Arrow Society member and enthusiast Rodney Flournoy who wrote in detail of his acquisition and a long-distance trip undertaken in the roadster in the PAS Arrow (1979 No. 2). In this ownership the car was first noted to have the current engine 311270 a correct replacement unit. The Pierce remained with Mr. Flournoy until 2004 and then was sold to longtime collector Don Short of Port Ludlow Washington.Following Mr. Shorts passing the Pierce-Arrow was acquired by Peter Hageman and was repainted and improved throughout with the older interior and top remaining intact and in wonderfully patinated condition. The most recent collection then acquired the car and it has remained well kept since with its lifetime of good care by enthusiasts still visible in every nut and bolt. It is handsomely finished in medium gray with black fenders and the body is accented with discreet dark green coachlines. Natural finish artillery wheels and dual rear-mounted spares complete the sporty presentation.The appeal of this Pierce-Arrow is obvious upon inspection: it has been used but not abused and carefully preserved and enjoyed for all its long life. It is ideal for further touring enjoyment with the AACA VMCCA and the CCCA or simply for cruising around town and savoring its peppy performance. It would of course be welcomed back to any number of Pierce-Arrow Society events where it would undoubtedly be reunited with old friends who fondly remember it from decades past.Offers welcome and trades consideredFor additional details please view this listing directly on our website https://hymanltd.com/vehicles/7154-1919-pierce-arrow-series-31/
