Here at Motoexotica Classic Cars we are very proud to present this CCCA recognized Pierce Arrow 2 door sedan. Our local market has been very kind to us lately by producing some really fine example Pierce Arrows such as our current 1934 Pierce Arrow 1240A that we have for sale and now this stunning 1925 Model 80 Five-passenger Two Door Coach as well as two other Pierce Arrow models. We acquired the car from long term ownership out of the small town of Newburg Missouri and is fitted with some really neat period correct goodies such as a external sun visor, column mounted radio and an original Kamlee trunk mounted on the back!

The Pierce-Arrow was built in Buffalo, New York from 1901 until 1938. It was one of the most revered and prestigious automobiles to grace the American road. The Series 80 Runabout was a very large car with a wheelbase that measured 130 inches. It was also finished with a high degree of quality typical of the Buffalo automaker. It wore a hand-hammered aluminum body which covered a white ash frame. Under the hood was the durable, smooth-running straight six which displaced 288 cubic-inches and offered 70 horsepower.

Finished in a very handsome two-tone green exterior, the paint and trim are in overall excellent condition. The car’s glass panels are clear and intact while its lights, the fluted headlights and driver’s side-only taillights, are in very good order. This Pierce rolls on dark green wood spoke artillery wheels with Goodrich 6.00-22 tires around them. In addition, there’s a rear-mounted spare and manual driver’s side windshield wiper. All of the car’s body panels are straight and solid, including the external sun visor and the rubberized roof that were so common on vehicles of that era. There is an external Kamlee trunk with fitted luggage for cargo storage, the engine bay is tidy and the bumpers are in very good order.

Inside, the tan cloth seats in near-excellent overall condition, while the carpet is in good shape. The headliner is in decent order while the instrument panel looks very good. The oil pressure, amp and speedometer gauges function but the odometer is inoperable. There’s a four-spoke wood steering wheel for the driver, the inner door panels, mirror glass and shifter are all in good condition. On the steering column, a unique radio dial is mounted for a period correct tube radio with a speaker mounted under the dash.

In the mid-1920’s Pierce-Arrow expanded it’s product line to appeal to a larger market. In late 1924, the Series 80 was introduced. The Series 80 was Pierce-Arrow’s entry into the upper-mid priced field, competing with the six-cylinder Packard. The cars maintained the traditional quality ideals of Pierce-Arrow, but in a smaller, less complex design. The initial response was quite good. Selling in the $3000 – $4000 range, the Series 80 put the Pierce-Arrow prestige within reach of a new market. At the time the Series 80 was introduced, the Pierce-Arrow Finance Corporation was organized, allowing customers to buy a Pierce-Arrow on installment payments. (Purchased from income rather than capital, as their advertisements phrased it).

Under the hood is the durable, smooth-running straight six which displaces 288 cubic-inches and offers 70 horsepower with a steel block that was cast in one unit, mounted on an aluminum crankcase. A Stewart vacuum tank supplies fuel to the Pierce carburetor. Four-wheel brakes and Houdaille hydraulic shock absorbers were standard equipment. Pierce-Arrow advertised fuel economy of 14-17 miles per gallon from the 18-gallon tank. One aspect of quality control that Pierce Arrow was known for was their extensive engine testing. Each engine was run in, disassembled, inspected, reassembled and tested again. Before the car left the factory for delivery, another inspector personally test-drove it. The body also underwent similar tests and inspections.

Competition to this Pierce-Arrow in 1925 included Cadillac’s V-63 Series Coach, Lincoln’s L-Series, Marmon’s 74 Series Brougham Coupe, Packard’s Series 6 Club Sedan and Peerless’ 67 Series Coupe.

This car is currently located at our facility in St. Louis, Missouri. Current mileage on the odometer shows 5,784 (not actual) miles. It is sold as is, where is, on a clean and clear, mileage exempt Repossessed Missouri title. GET OUT AND DRIVE!!!
