THE PIERCE-ARROW MODEL 33

The series 33 introduced in 1921 marks Pierce Arrows first model with left hand drive. Their line had consolidated as the need for the massive displacement Series 51 (48) was no longer necessary for sufficient power. Pierce-Arrows advanced engine design with its four-valves per cylinders, dual plug ignition, monobloc six producing plenty of power for even the most elaborate and heavy bodies. The 33s are noted for their great flexibility, power and excellent road manners. Pierce Arrows are always noted for their excellent steering ease and crisp transmissions and this model is no different.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

This Model 33 chassis is adorned with particularly handsome and usable 7-Passenger Touring coachwork. Pierce quality is evident everywhere you look on this fine machine. Gaze out on the dash board and you realize this is not your average car from the '20s

Many decades ago, one Randall Shaffer of New Castle, Pennsylvania sold this Pierce to Barney Pollard of Detroit, Michigan. Pollard, referred to in period articles as the "World's Champion Old-Car Collector" began amassing a collection of 'old cars' in the 1930s—back when the car's he was buying from the teens and twenties were merely used and obsolete obscurities. He amassed so many cars that he began hanging them from their front bumpers to save on space. By the mid-1970s, when he began auctioning off is collect, he had amassed a collection of more than 1000 vehicles and can be credited with preserving any number of rare vehicles that would no doubt been lost to the scrap heap had it not been for his voracious collecting appetite.

This Pierce was restored some time ago and is finished in a lovely crimson and black color scheme with black leather. Featuring twin jump seats in the rear and dual windscreens, it would be an ideal family tour car – both when it was new and today. As a CCCA Full Classic™, there are numerous events at which it would be a welcome addition.

One would be hard pressed to find another Pierce Arrow 33 restored to such a fine state. With their great performance and wonderful manners these Pierce Arrows are highly recommended examples of one of America's highest quality cars.
