Pierce Arrow is among the three grand luxury car brands of Pre-War
America. Pierce Arrow's demise in 1938 did little to diminish the
timelessness of the automobiles themselves. Finding a good
8-cylinder model is an uncommon occurrence, and rarer still are the
lavish 12-cylinder models, of which less than 300 were known to be
built. 1934 was one of the last years the struggling automaker
would produce these marvelous multi-cylinder cars. It was also a
year in which the design of the Pierce Arrow body changed most
significantly. The iconic Archer ornament was now fixed in place to
emphasize the car's contemporary and streamlined design.The 1934
Pierce Arrow Limousine showcased here makes a strong impression
with it's extensive 144" wheelbase. This model 1240A is correctly
numbered at 3530015 which is consistent according to the Pierce
Arrow Society's documentation for an Enclosed Drive Limousine. The
car's cosmetic condition is best described as an older restoration
with fair paint with a well maintained patina that's quite
presentable. Chrome shows good to very good with sharp luster on
the grille and bumpers. The interior upholstery and trim are good
to very good, dash is well preserved and upholstery is free from
rips and tears, further wear along the floor mats notwithstanding.
An inspection from beneath reveals a respectable regimen of indoor
storage with no visible rust through floor panels or frame members.
The mammoth 462 cubic inch twelve cylinder engine runs good and
exhibits little effort pulling away from a dead stop in second
gear. The Pierce V12's were incredibly durable engines for high
cruising speeds and this example performs as it should. Youtube
