The Pierce-Arrow Motor Car Co. was the most successful early exponent of the six-cylinder engine, a pioneer in power brakes, and was associated with some remarkable early experiments in light alloy construction, streamlined bodywork, and power steering. Of course, on the aesthetic side, there was the patented Pierce-Arrow fender and headlight treatment designed by Herbert Douley, a design feature that endured for the remainder of Pierce-Arrow's existence.
In 1916, this Pierce-Arrow was purchased by A. Atwater Kent in Portland, Maine. Kent was an American inventor and prominent radio manufacturer based in Philadelphia, who later patented the modern form of the automobile ignition coil. The car remained in Bar harbor, Maine, until 1982, when it was given to his namesake A. Atwater Kent III. Mark purchased the car from him in 1985. It was repainted in its original blue color in 1958, and the top and seats were replaced in 2012. It is the only example of this model known to exist.
