Eligibility The Model 125 4-Passenger Coupe offered here is a
rarely seen example from the inaugural year for the Pierce-Arrow
eight. Continuing to benefit from a very nicely aging older
restoration, it features a pleasing color scheme in Mint Green with
Black fenders and moldings, a Black leather top with landau bars
and button-tufted Tan cloth upholstery. This Pierce-Arrow is
understood to have enjoyed touring use, regular maintenance and
proper storage, commensurate with its attractive present condition.
Desirable period details include wind wings, a golf-bag door on the
passenger side, nickel-finished door handles and window crank, a
sun visor and windshield wiper. Body-color wire wheels mounting
black wall tires provide a period-appropriate accent. Rightly
recognized as a CCCA Full Classicautomobile, this 1929 Pierce-Arrow
Model 125 4-Passenger Coupe will provide a welcome entry into a
veritable multitude of desirable events with abundant style.
Buffalo, New York's Pierce-Arrow enjoyed a long and successful
history prior to the difficult 1930s, having manufactured some of
the greatest motor cars offered during the Brass and Classic Eras.
The company's controversial merger of 1928 with Studebaker, driven
by Pierce-Arrow's acute need for cash to finance new-model
development, provided the needed resources for a new and highly
acclaimed eight-cylinder engine in 1929, finally breaking the
marque's long-standing reliance on six-cylinder power. As the
infamous 1929 stock market crash and subsequent Great Depression
loomed, Pierce-Arrow was healthy and resolutely continued to focus
on its luxury-car roots and its upscale, discerning clientele more
than ever. Debuted for 1929, the new Pierce-Arrow "eight" was a
true breakthrough. Weighing some 100 pounds less than the big
T-head six that it replaced, the new engine delivered 25 percent
more power from a 12 percent smaller displacement. It was even less
expensive, with prices beginning at $2,775, making renowned
Pierce-Arrow quality available to a broader market in no fewer than
12 body styles. Offerings for 1929 included Model 125, named for
its 125-horsepower output on the 133-inch wheelbase chassis and
Model 126 with the same power rating but on the 143-inch wheelbase
chassis. Pierce-Arrow sales reached 8,000 units in 1929; a feat
sadly never repeated. Car comes heavily documented!
