Most domestic here....1923? Pierce-Arrow

10 posts in this topic

I'm looking to get a valuation on a large part of what is close to a 1923 Pierce-Arrow car.  I'ts the complete engine (straight 8, from hand crank to air cleaner, wooden governor pulley to starter), the double clutch and transmission, all sitting on what appears to be the front 1/2 of the frame.   Does anyone have any contacts on OLD cars?  These things were near the top of the ladder in luxury cars back then, pretty neat rides.

Yes.  I presume it to be the front of the original frame, although it could be something else entirely. 

And let me back up on the year, I think the 8 cylinder is a later 20s, early-mid 30s.

Who knows, but 22 years ago my dad told a wheeler-dealer about it and the guy offered $500 sight unseen.  

$10 says it's appreciated more than a buffed Fox body.  :)
