Sold for $319,000 at 2010 RM Auctions - Sports & Classics of Monterey.
The Pierce-Arrow Model 66 A-4 Seven-Passenger Tourer rested on a 147.5-inch platform and was powered by a six-cylinder engine that displaced 825 cubic-inches. The engine was massive, and believed to have produced over 100 horsepower. It had so much power and torque that it was among the mightiest automobiles of the era.

Pierce-Arrow pioneered thin cast-aluminum panels work in its bodies, making the vehicles much lighter and stronger than the wooden bodies or metal-paneled wooden frameworks used by its competitors.

In 1914, electric starting was added to the Model 66. The following year, a pressurized fuel delivery system, using an engine-operated air pump to pressurize the fuel tank, was added. The final model 66 Series 4 debuted in 1916 and would remain in production through 1918.

The engine in the Model 66 had dual ignition from a coil-and-battery system and a magneto, plus it was built with a number of aluminum parts. The fuel tank could hold 36 gallons of fuel, something that was needed for the vehicle which got 8.5-miles per gallon.

It is believed that around 1,250 Model 66 Pierce-Arrows were built from 1910 through 1918. Around 14 examples are known to exist in modern time, and just seven are of the Model 66 A-4 series.

This example is finished in two tones of blue with a black leather interior and a black Panasote top. It rides on 27-inch Johnson wheels, has a luggage trunk and full side curtains with 'gypsy' windows providing protection to the occupants at the rear-compartment.

In 2010, this car was offered for sale at the 'Sports & Classics of Monterey' presented by RM Auctions. It was estimated to sell for $300,000 - $400,000. As bidding came to a close, the car had been sold for the sum of $319,000 inclusive of buyer's premium.
