Resplendent in cream with red and tan leather upholstery; riding on red wood spoke wheels, this is an imposing, luxurious, rare and highly desirable example of the quality and performance of Pierce-Arrow automobiles. First owned by Broadway legend George M. Cohan, it is not possible to consider its all-American performance and manufacture without tapping a foot and humming a line from “Yankee Doodle Boy” or “Give My Regards to Broadway”.
