This 1926 Pierce-Arrow Model 80 Roadster is most definitely not typical of Pierce-Arrow production. Instead of a staid and formal limousine or touring car, this is a jaunty and sporting Pierce. Its open roadster body with rumble seat sits gracefully on the Model 80's 130 inch wheelbase. Finished in beige with brown fenders, frame covers and body side accent, it rides on brown painted wire wheels with large polished center nuts and period correct black wall tires. The dark tan leather is offset by a new chocolate brown cloth roadster top that rounds out the color scheme beautifully. Bright aluminum running boards and step plates for access to the rumble seat emphasize Pierce-Arrow's adoption of aluminum for much of their coachwork. Befitting their quality and performance, all Pierce-Arrows from 1925-1937 are recognized by the Classic Car Club of America as Full Classics™, according them participation in the Club's many shows, events and tours as well as endorsing the marque's stature as one of the pre-eminent automobiles of the classic era. This 1926 Pierce-Arrow Model 80 Roadster is a charming example of the style and flair of sporting cars from the period. It continues to exude character and exuberance as well as having strong performance and excellent road manners.
