(Not the actual model which is being auctioned, it's an illustration for 1929 Pierce-Arrow)
If you fan of classic vintage cars, then there is some thing special for you to grab on. The Classic 1929 model of Pierce-Arrow is for sale on eBay. So, thinking whats special in that??? Hmmm....... That car belongs to non other than the legend Charlie Chaplin, an icon of the silent film era, has given us some of the funniest and most famous movies of all time.
The dual-cowl phaeton convertible made by an American automobile manufacturer based in Buffalo, New York, is one of the most luxurious and ostentatious cars of the era.
Its straight-8 engine was one of the smoothest and most powerful at the time. It was a popular luxurious auto brand in that time that in 1909, US President William Howard Taft ordered two Pierce-Arrows to be used for state occasions, the first official cars of the White House.
This car was brought up by the collection of the Automotive Road of Dreams Museum for a six-figure sum from racing legend Andy Granatelli.
