The appearance of the 1931 Pierce-Arrows received little change from the previous year's models, however the chassis frames were new and were built in three ranges and with a choice of three engine displacements and four wheelbase lengths. The Model 42 was powered by the nine-bearing 5997cc straight-eight engine fitted with a single Updraft Stromberg carburetor and offering 125 horsepower.

This Pierce-Arrow Convertible Coupe is finished in two-tone red coachwork with chromed hood louvers and stainless steel Budd wheels. There is a tan interior with matching tan top. It a meticulously restored example that was the recipient of the Bernard J. Weis Trophy at the Pierce Arrow national meet. The car has a four-speed manual transmission and four-wheel Bendix mechanical drum brakes.
