The original owner of this car was William Henry Vanderbilt, III of Portsmouth, Rhode Island. The Club Sedan offered slightly more privacy for rear seat passengers than the standard 5-passenger sedan. After about seven years, the car was given to the family chauffeur who used it for the remaining driving years of his life.
Pierce-Arrow offered three series for 1935, which included 18 body styles and a variety of custom bodies, as well as three different chassis lengths and a choice of either an 8- or 12-cylinder engine.
Production for the year amounted to just 875 vehicles.
