1932 Pierce Arrow


Engine Type:
HA Cummins 6-Cylinder

Transmission Type:
4-Speed, 3-Speed Auxiliary

Truck Information:
The 1932 Pierce Arrow ranges from 12,000 to 34,000 pounds. It sports a powerful six-cylinder, dual ignition engine with 125 horsepower and chrome nickel iron blocks; chrome nickel steel frames were heat treated for extra strength and Westinghouse air brakes were used. There is extra strength in every chassis part giving it extra life and low net haulage cost. This was a working truck. Pierce Arrows were used for a variety of jobs including hauling massive rolls of paper or hauling coal. This particular truck was used by a petroleum tank link company for over 40 years in the Fresno area. As the truck got older, it was semi-retired and was used until 1991 to haul oil barrels. This truck began its restoration process in 1992 and took several years to complete. It is currently on loan from Jim Dobbas. Top Speed: 45 MPH
