THE ESSENTIALS

SALE PENDING!! In the late 20’s, American automotive standards were set by the three P’s: Packard, Pierce-Arrow and Peerless. Somehow, Peerless has nearly been forgotten and its cars are by far the most rare. This is a thorough and high quality older restoration done to high standards. And it looks incredible still. With just over 800 miles traveled since restoration, it is in good mechanical condition as well.

The livery is painted in four colors, three shades of green and black fenders. It looks fantastic. The paint is in overall good to very good condition. It has terrific luster and no noticeable cracking or other issues. The chrome is also in good to very good condition. Overall, the entire car has a consistent patina. It would be very comfortable at any car show and most all concours events.

This Peerless was bought new in San Diego, CA and remained there under long term ownership nearly all its life. In the early 1990’s, it benefited from a complete ground up restoration. You can see from the photo gallery that this was a very thorough restoration. After 30 years of ownership and restoration, the car was sold and spent about seven years at the Murphy Auto Museum in Oxnard, CA. From there, it was traded to join the vast collection of the present owner in Northern California.

This has an incredibly rare hood ornament that overlays onto a Moto-meter. This very opulent hood ornament was issued by Peerless only to special VIP repeat customers. The owner of the car had been offered $7,500 by a ornament collector- JUST FOR THE ORNAMENT!! Also included in the sale is an incredibly rare Peerless tire pressure gauge and its original pouch, both in spectacular condition.

The interior is done in a correct looking mohair. The flooring is rubber matting that is in very good condition.

The Peerless fires up easily with an electric fuel pump professionally mounted. The vacuum fuel system is still there and in excellent condition. The transmission and brakes work and seat belts and turn signals were added for safer touring. This is a testament to the fact that this is not meant to be a trailer queen. The new owner would need to perform a major service before enduring a tour.

With a 115 inch wheelbase and the dependable and powerful Continental 248 cu. in. straight six and three speed manual transmission, the motorcar performs well for the period. Peerless were made in Cleveland, Ohio from 1900 to 1931 and was considered an innovator having developed drum brakes, still used today.

Interesting Fact: Peerless was an American motor car company that produced vehicles from 1900 to 1931. This company, at the time, was a powerhouse that competed with Packard and Pierce-Arrow, being a member of the coveted “Three P’s”.   1902 was the first-year Peerless branded vehicles hit the streets that used a front-mounted engine which controlled the rear wheels via a shaft. This led to the creation of the Green Dragon racecar that competed in the world’s first 24-hour endurance race. Starting in 1911, electric lighting was introduced by Peerless in their vehicles and a custom-built V8 engine became standard until 1925.   When the effects of the Great Depression set in around 1930, Peerless saw a massive decline in sales. They attempted to market to wealthy Americans less affected by the depression, but to no avail. Eventually, Peerless turned into a brewery following the end of Prohibition. Although they no longer exist, Peerless is a renowned brand for their influence in the development of the automobile industry, and a respectable brand for any car enthusiast to have in their garage!
