GR Auto Gallery is excited to present this 1928 Pierce Arrow Model 81 for purchase. Out of Buffalo, New York, Pierce Arrow was a brand that was best known for its expensive luxury cars. Back when a car was art, this brand meant you were getting the best of the best and weren't afraid to show off. Two of them were ordered by President Taft making them the first ever official cars of the White House. Many Hollywood stars and royalty around the world had at least one Pierce Arrow. Pierce-Arrows are known for their unique headlights mounted on top of each fender. But according to Pierce-Arrow lore, those famed headlights almost didn't make it out of the design phase. The story goes that in 1907, an aspiring automotive artist by the name of Herbert Dawley was hired by Pierce Arrow and assigned to the sales department, where he spent much of his time designing minor pieces of hardware. In time, however, he was given free rein and told to design something that would set the Pierce-Arrow apart from the others in the crowed luxury car field. The company may be the most unfortunate automotive victim of the Great Depression as it was very difficult to sell vehicles for $10,000 at the time.

This car was restored to concourse conditions starting in 1991. It is a AACA National First Prize winner in absolute stunning concourse condition. It's powered by the original inline 6 cylinder engine and manual transmission. We hold a full book of receipts and documentation of the restoration, maintenance, and AACA awards. The Archer is one of the best symbols in automotive history, and this car is truly a piece of art. Please call or email for more details!
