1935 Pierce-Arrow 845
The Pierce-Arrow Motor Car Company was an American motor vehicle manufacturer based in Buffalo, NY, which was active from 1901 to 1938. Although best known for its expensive luxury cars, Pierce-Arrow also manufactured commercial trucks, fire trucks, camp trailers, motorcycles, and bicycles.
In 1909, U.S. President William Howard Taft ordered two Pierce-Arrows to be used for state occasions, the first official cars of the White House.
In 1913 Pierce-Arrow distinguished itself from competition by incorporating fender-mounted headlamps, which now come standard.
In 1928, the Studebaker Corporation of South Bend, Indiana, gained control of the Buffalo firm. Under Studebaker's ownership, Pierce-Arrow retired the venerable 6-cylinder engine and in 1929 introduced an L-head Straight eight engine, The bodies were comprised of cast-aluminum and throughout the vehicle only the finest materials could be found. The vehicles pioneered the use of power brakes and hydraulic tappets. They were elegant, powerful, reliable, and mechanically advanced. The Designs were equally advanced.
Pierce was the only luxury brand that did not field a lower-priced car and since it was priced at $3,350 in 1935, (Ford Model 48 was $535) during the worst depression, the rich were hesitant to sped so much. The final Pierce-Arrow assembled was built by Karl Wise, the firm's chief engineer, from parts secured from the company's receivers. Pierce's remaining assets were sold at auction on Friday the 13th of May, 1938. The Great Depression having claimed another automotive company.
