Model 845. inline side valve eight-cylinder engine with three-speed manual transmission, leaf spring and I-beam axle front leaf spring and hypoid live axle suspension and four-wheel servo-assisted drum brakes. Wheelbase: 144" Few marques have developed the legendary reputation of the Pierce-Arrow. Once the leading fine car maker, Pierce-Arrow’s name was built by the exquisitely engineered and massive sixes of the teens. Starting with the Great Arrow and continuing with the Models 36, 48, and ending with the thundering Model 66 – a massive machine with an 847 cu. in. T-head engine and a 147 inch wheelbase – it is easy to see why these early Pierce-Arrows were very impressive. By the late 1920s though, Pierce-Arrow was in trouble. The manufacturer had been at the top for so long that a stifling conservatism had permeated the company’s operations, as well as its products. In the meantime other Marques continued to develop and enhance their products, stealing market share from Pierce-Arrow until the company was awash in red ink. As a result, the very existence of the lovely coupe offered here can be credited to a remarkable accountant, Mr. Albert R. Erskine. Having ascended to the Presidency of Studebaker, he focused on assembling an automotive empire. He needed a car to compete in the fine car marketplace, and there was no better name than Pierce-Arrow. Erskine saw the value in the name, and quickly negotiated a stock swap deal that gave him control of Pierce-Arrow in 1928. He immediately introduced an eight-cylinder engine, along with new bodies and a host of new features. Better cars with lower prices combined to give Pierce its best year ever in 1929, with 9,700 cars delivered. No one suspected that disaster lay just around the corner. Sales in the fine car market continued to decline, even as Pierce-Arrow and the others introduced a vast array of new products. For 1933, talented designer Phil Wright was instructed by Roy Faulkner, Pierce-Arrow’s new sales manager, to come up with something new and dramatic. Introduced at the 1933 Auto Shows in New York and Chicago, the Silver Arrow was a sensation. Unfortunately, at $10,000 each, the prototype Silver Arrows found few takers, and just five were built. The success of the Silver Arrow did result in updated styling across the line, producing a dramatic, if short lived, turnaround in sales for Pierce-Arrow. With only a handful of survivors known, this Pierce-Arrow coupe with rumbke seat in the back offers the astute collector an opportunity to add not only one of the most impressive looking, but also one of the rarest examples of this famous Buffalo-built classic car to their collection..
