|Model History||Auction sales research||Specifications||Body styles and Chassis Data|
This 1910 Pierce-Arrow Model 48 SS Demi-Tonneau is powered by a six-cylinder T-head engine that displaces 525 cubic-inches and offers 48 horsepower. There is a four-speed selective sliding gearbox and cast-aluminum coachwork. It is the only Model 48 Demi-Tonneau known to exist and is among the most desirable bass era cars.
Chassis 7540 was given a restoration from a very original car and only the front fenders needed to be replicated. It has a four-position accessory windshield, and a correct belly pan to protect the underside of the engine. An electric self-starter system has been added for greater ease of use.
In 2008, this 1910 Pierce-Arrow Model 48 SS Demi-Tonneau was offered for sale at the Gooding & Company Auction held in Pebble Beach, California. The car was estimated to sell for $600,000 - $750,000. The lot was sold for $632,500, including buyer's premium.
