1930 Pierce Arrow Model B Victoria Coupe

Pierce Arrow Motor Car Company was an American automobile manufacturer based in Buffalo, New York, which was active from 1901 to 1938. Although best known for its expensive luxury cars, Pierce-Arrow also manufactured commercial trucks, fire trucks, camp trailers, motorcycles, and bicycles.

Early cars had the largest automobile engines in the world. In 1914 Pierce-Arrow adopted its most enduring styling hallmark when its headlights were moved from a traditional placement on either side of the radiator into flared housings molded into the front fenders of the car, this hallmark carried through to the last model in 1938.

In 1928 Studebaker took over Pierce Arrow.

For 1930 Pierce introduced the A, B, and C models. The A was the largest and most expensive, while the C was the cheapest of the three. Customers had four wheelbase sizes to select from, including 132, 134, 139 and 144 inches

Model B Engine; 125hp 365 cu in 6 cyl
