Lot #5031 - The sensation of the 1933 New York Auto Show was the stunningly streamlined 1933 Silver Arrow, only 5 were produced. Capitalizing on the Silver Arrow, for 1934 Pierce cleverly combined stock front fenders, hoods and cowls with a new streamlined body closely resembling the original Silver Arrow from the cowl back. These cars were marketed as "Silver Arrows" in hopes that the glamorous, futuristic look of the New York Auto Show car would result in increased sales. This particular car has had a photo documented, body off restoration done in the early 1990's. This car is powered by Pierces new long-stroke 385ci straight 8 motor with 140bhp. It is with little wonder that cars like the Silver Arrow earned Pierce Arrow the honor of being called "First among Americas finest."
