1917 Pierce Arrow model 66A4

If you like lots of power, and muscle, you need to come in and take a look at this car.  We pulled the radiator out and having it sent out to PA to have it recored.  The radiator will be out for some time, so we decided to put the car on display with the engine open so that you can see it in all its glory.

This is a very large 7 passenger touring car that is a great addition to our collection, and will be a fun car to drive this summer. It sports the largest production engine used in an american automobile. It is rated at a conservative 100 HP, at 1800 RPM, and is 825 CID. Yes thats correct, 825 CID. The torque of this thing is impressive, and until you drive or ride in this car you cannot appreciate it.
Here is a front view of the engine, showing the inline 6cyl engine sporting 3 spark plugs per cyl.              Remember that this friday the 11th of February 2011 is the Gala Event of the year, Dancing with the cars, sponsored by the UAF, and it is always fun and the staff here is excited to help make this a success again this year. So when you come in, make sure to take the time to look at this wonderful car.

Thanks, Willy

  1. Driving a Pierce 66 is on my life list of things to do. The "smaller" Pierces sixes are magnificent, I can only imagine about the big one.
