This 1913 Pierce-Arrow Model 38 Roadster was originally a four-door open Touring Model 38 C. It is powered by a six-cylinder Pierce engine developing 38 horsepower. The car rides on a 132-inch wheelbase, weighs 4200 pounds and was priced at $4,800. A total of 750 cars were produced.
It remained in the same family and was rebodied to a Roadster in 1952. Essentially, the rear seat was replaced with a roadster gas tank and a twin concealed seat as was found in the original Roadster. It has a miniature four-cylinder engine and has four forward gears. It came equipped with an air starter and it contains a compressed air tank under the right side. Cadillac came out with an electric starter in 1913 and most newer Pierces converted to electric. The current owners are the second owners of this Pierce.
