At one time Pierce-Arrow had been one of "The Three P's", Pierce-Arrow, Packard and Peerless, which defined the pinnacle of American manufacturers' quality however in the view of many historians it stayed too long with its once-pioneering six-cylinder engines, persistence which was finally overcome with the introduction of an inline eight-cylinder in 1929. Production continued in 1930 with an expanded line that assumed, in common with other luxury marques, that the Wall Street crash and its consequences would be short lived. The 1930 Pierce-Arrow Model A was the top of the line, with a 144" wheelbase and 132 horsepower engine, power that challenged every other American manufacturer except the mighty Duesenberg. This Pierce-Arrow Model A Convertible Coupe is an AACA Senior National First Prize winning restoration that it beautifully restored and completely equipped. Finished in Maroon with a Dark Maroon beltline accent and Yellow coachline, it has Dark Maroon leather upholstery and a Tan cloth top piped. Fitted with chrome wire wheels, wide whitewalls tires, dual side-mounted spares with rear view mirrors, the Pierce archer radiator mascot, radiator stone guard, Pierce auxiliary lights, a pair of Pilot-Ray driving lights, chrome landau bars on the top, chrome hood side louvers, golf bag door and a rumble seat, the interior features very fine wood trim, an opening windshield with dual wipers and instrument panel lights. There is a luggage trunk on a rear-mounted rack for storage. This is a proper, thorough, Concours-quality older restoration that needs nothing. It has new tires and has just been serviced and thoroughly detailed, making it ready for the coming season of shows and events for which it is ideally suited and where its presence will add elegance and luxury to any show or tour.
