This 1931 Pierce-Arrow Victoria convertible was photographed at the 2010 Palo Alto Concours d’Elegance. The owners said it is the only surviving example of Le Baron coachwork built on the long wheelbase Model 41 chassis.
“This car was displayed at the New York Auto Show in 1931 at the opening of the Waldorf Astoria Hotel. The Model 41 was the grandest model built by Pierce-Arrow that year, and very few remain,” stated an owners’ summary at the concours.
In fact, it is only one of two known convertible Victorias that have survived and it is the only 1931 model.
