1932 Pierce-Arrow Model 54

Chassis number : 105843

Share on:

Sold for $88,000 at 2010 RM Auctions - Vintage Motor Cars of Meadow Brook.
This Pierce-Arrow Model 54 Convertible Sedan wears coachwork by LeBaron. This vehicle was once owned by Mr. Ralph B. Gordon form at least as early as 1972, when the state of Wisconsin issued a title to the car in his name. In 1986, the car entered the Richard and Linda Kughn collection. In 2003, the car passed on to its next owner.

This car has an older ground-up restoration, which still shows well in modern times. It is finished in pewter, complemented by a deep brown beltline, fenders and wheels, as well as orange pin-striping. It shows some cracking and chipping, particularly in the higher-stress areas.

Period features include dual spares with metal covers and jewel-like chrome-plated rear view mirrors, wooden artillery wheels, whitewall tires and a rear-mounted luggage trunk. There are period features such as a correct cluster-type taillight and a pair of chrome-plated external horns. The car has less than 87,000 miles. The engine is a 366 cubic-inch, side-valve eight-cylinder engine delivering 125 horsepower. There is a four-speed manual transmission and four-wheel servo-assisted mechanical drum brakes.

This Convertible Sedan is a former Classic Car Club of America National First Prize-winner.

In 2010, this Model 54 Pierce-Arrow was offered for sale at the Vintage Motor Cars of Meadow Brook presented by RM Auctions. It was estimated to sell for $75,000 - $100,000. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $88,000, including buyer's premium.
