Selling At Auction - Northeast - 2018 This 1929 Pierce-Arrow Model 143 convertible is a beautiful, well-maintained older restoration, with the manufacturer having a long-built reputation for exquisite handcrafted detail in coachwork and hand-tooled precision for its engine building. This Model 143 is powered by a 366ci Straight 8-cylinder, L-head engine mated to a 3-speed manual transmission. It features a 143Ó wheelbase, roll-down windows and a rumble seat, and is one of just 205 examples originally constructed. The impeccable older restoration included work on the engine, transmission and other running gear, the brake system, front end and suspension, steering box and other components. The interior is trimmed in brown leather, all brightwork replated and a new canvas top was fitted. The car shows beautifully with its Grecian Bronze over Rodgers Deep Brown paint and refinish work. This is a Classic Car Club of America Full Classic and a fine example of the Golden Age of American Classics. Ready to drive and enjoy.
