“The Factory behind the Pierce Great Arrow"
This illustration shows a very comfortable
car--the Pierce Great Arrow 40-45 horsepower seven passenger touring car. The two extra seats in the tonneau are just as comfortable as the other seats. They revolve like an office chair or a parlor car seat so as to add to the sociability of the party in the tonneau. Price $5,000. Cape top extra.
HE real test of the Pierce car is not a perfect record in an
exhibition contest like the Glidden Tour, but a perfect record
over twice the amount of mileage in the hands of the owner.
Not for two or three weeks at a time, under ideal conditions, but all the time, under all conditions, and over all roads, the Pierce Arrow has proved itself the American car for American men.
Having produced a car as satisfactory as the Pierce, it is up to us to produce a factory good enough and big enough to make the Pierce car as good as it has been in quantities to supply the demand. Hence the Pierce car is now backed up by a factory which we believe is the most complete and most satisfactory of its kind in the world.
