This extraordinary Imperial Salon Twelve is grandly impressive. The 1937 owner's brochure, along with extensive documentation (which is included with the purchase) describes this vehicle as “Grandly impressive in the manner of things substantial…the interior roominess, comfort and the Enclosed-Drive Limousine eloquently express all the virtues of Pierce-Arrow's custom coach craft at its very best. An extra-long wheelbase and a powerful 12-cylinder motor are the fundamentals around which Pierce-Arrow engineers have built the Seven Passenger Sedan.” Powering the car is a 462/182hp V12 engine featuring two down-draft carburetors with functioning dual chokes. The engine runs amazingly smoothly. Power is transferred to the rear wheels by a 3-speed manual transmission featuring the functioning automatic overdrive that automatically engages between 40 and 45mph. Driver-assist features include a unique free-wheeling feature along with factory assisted drum brakes. The 17" original matching artillery-style wheels with chrome beauty rings and matching chrome Pierce 12 hubcaps and new 17" whitewall tires complete the period look. The car is also equipped with dual side mounts. The interior has original black leather upholstery in the driver's cab with original tan fabric in the passenger compartment. It features a privacy partition window behind the driver which is functioning. This model also has two fold-up opera-type seats. The original dash is accented in chrome and black with fully functioning gauges. The interior is complimented by original mahogany wood trim. There are privacy shades in the passenger cab windows.
This vehicle comes with immense amount of literature, brochures and documentation; much of which is period specific. Potential for rental income for weddings, anniversaries, proms.
