  3. 1929 Peerless

    Thank you! We just finished restoring her older sister, a 1926 Peerless 2 door Sedan, but we don't have a video on her yet. You can see the photos though on our website http://www.oldwheel.com/sales.html

    This video is a short look at the quality work we do. Special thanks to our super talented son-in-law, Griffin Partilla, who created this fantastic video. And to the star of the show, our grand-daughter Lorelei, cheers to the next generation who love great historic cars!
  5. 1926 Peerless 2 door Sedan- RARE CAR

    Woohoo....the 1926 Peerless won the "Great Gatsby Award" at the FOS Amelia Island this past weekend! And we saw our 1931 Peerless that we restored over a year ago and sold to Jeff Spence of Maryland/Jacksonville, FL on display at the Concours D'Elegance Amelia on Sunday. She really looked outstanding on the field. Pictures to follow!

    Possibly... wouldn't it be great if we could deliver one to a new owner in Cleveland...she would be home again!

They used a Gray & Davis system as early as 1910 and then upgrading in 1913 to a single voltage Gray & Davis system which now included an electric starter.

  10. 1926 Peerless 2 door Sedan- RARE CAR

    Thank you Jeff! Yes, Brando has an eye for interesting color combinations while making sure the colors were available to be purchased during the era. He said it was Rolls Royce Blue and Ford Brown, but I see Sky Blue and Hershey's Chocolate! I will post the 1930 Peerless for sale next. It is running great, and we put in new carpet and hood liner, but we have not updated the paint and upholstery yet, so maybe someone wants to buy it before the price goes up, or pick their own color combinations! We are leaving for Amelia Island tomorrow, and heard that our 1931 Peerless that we restored and sold to Jeff Spence has been entered. We look forward to seeing it judged in the "big show". Cheers!
