The red and cream paint and metal trim on this car are in very good order overall. We found a minor blemish on the left hood. The windows and windshield are clear and crack-free. All of the lights, including the fog lights, are in good shape despite the patina. The car rides along factory wood spoke and metal wheels, surrounded by wide whitewall bias-ply tires, sized 6.00/6.50-19. The body panels are straight and solid and in fantastic shape, even the rubberized roof. There's no trunk in the rear or faired-in cargo area on this vehicle. There is, however, a side-mounted spare tire on the passenger side and the engine bay is in tidy condition. Under the hood is a 366 CID straight eight-cylinder engine with nine main bearings and a Stromberg UU-2 carburetor, linked to a three-speed manual transmission. Open the driver's door and a russet-colored interior greets you. The bench seats are in very good order and the matching carpet is in decent condition. The russet headliner's condition mirrors that of the seats. The instrument panel and four-spoke steering wheel are in good condition. There is a hand-crank for the windshield wipers. Currently the temp gauge is inoperable. The mirror glass and shift lever are in good order. The window sills are finished in gorgeous wood, metal grab handles for easy passenger ingress and egress, and there is a tray on either side of the rear compartment to cater to the passengers. In 1928, the�Studebaker�Corporation of�South Bend, Indiana, gained control of the Buffalo firm. The association was to last for five years, with moderate benefits to both companies' engineering departments, which continued to function as separate entities.�Pierce-Arrow also gained a dealer network, as the cars were sold through Studebaker dealerships. Under Studebaker's ownership, Pierce-Arrow retired the venerable six-cylinder engine and in 1929 introduced an L-head�straight-eight engine, which displaced 366 cubic inches. This car is currently located at our facility in St. Louis, Missouri. Current mileage on the odometer shows 90,622 miles since the gauges were tested and reset.
