"New" Peerless Discovered!

Recommended Posts

A new Peerless appeared for sale in the September Hemmings Motor News, a two-tone green Mod. 6-60 Sedan with disc wheels  in California. I talked to the seller 2 days ago and found it has already sold. I'm waiting for information on where it went and who the new owner is. I think it's been around San Diego about 25 years. These were 1927-28 cars, with a replacement sold until early 1930, the 6-61 & 6-61A.

The HMN ad doesn´t show engine compartment photos. If you type in www.barnfinds.com, one finds some. These clearly show a Peerless ¨Collins Six¨ or ¨Superb Six¨ 289 Cu. In. engine, and also lists an auction ending in 20 hours(3:00 PM Friday) with bidding up to about $9,500. Barnfinds.com lists it as a 1925 6-70.

 

This is the only existing Peerless sedan with the interesting ¨1/8 windows¨ behind the windshield, TTBOMK, and that does conform more accurately to a 1924/1925 Model 6-70 than a 1925 8-67. The Cadillac-like rad shell this Peerless has was only used on the V-8 Peerlesses in 1923 and 1924. They appeared on only one Peerless Six model, the 1924 6-70(and a few early-1925 6-70s). In April, 1925, the 6-70 was replaced by 6-72.

 

I´m thinking this is actually a 1924 or early-1925 Model 6-70 Sedan/126¨ w.b./$2,995 new, making this one of THREE in existence. The other 6-70 cars are a 1924 5-Passenger Touring Phaeton now in Texas(rough shape when I last saw it 8 years ago) and a 1925 5-Passenger Touring Phaeton in Sidney, MT which came from Saskatchewan, Canada in Sept., 2018.
