PEERLESS PARTS FOR SALE THREAD

92 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

It's so impossible to find Peerless parts sometimes, I thought that when one of us finds one for sale we should post it here. If someone finds something else for sale, put the post here ...and number it with a roman numeral like I have. Thank you.

I. Peerless sedan rear seat accessory FS.

On e-Bay, someone has a real Peerless accessory for sale for about 4 more days. It's for sale by "turkey1717" and is listed as a "Peerless Luxury Touring Car Cigarette Accessory".

I think it could be for:

a. a mirror and compact case

b. cigarette case and matches case

c. small notebook and pen case

All 3 of these things have been advertised as accessories in the back seats of some of the nicer models of Peerless closed cars 1926-1931, according to ads.

I'm sure it's genuine. It's an ornate container, mostly sheet metal, with wood-grained front, and 2 velvet-lined compartments inside. There is a colorful Peerless eagle logo at the top, and the dimensions are about 3 1/2"x7"x2". Stamped with Doerr Co. on back.

I think they were asking about $80.00 for the item.

II. An incredibly intact complete walnut vanity case is currently for sale on e-bay. It is specifically for a 1920s or 1930s Peerless closed car.

VI. An Aluminum Peerless hubcap is for sale on e-bay until 4/7/12. The price has rocketed up from around $15 to $162 with 38 bids!

Kind of unusual for a simple hubcap...but I have to admit it's an unusual design that I've never seen before.

I just listed a Peerless Moto meter on Ebay. It is a 5 day auction.

Comes from my dad's estate. I haven't seen a whole lot of other Peerless parts but I will be keeping a look out.

X. I see that someone has an Engine Serial Number Plate for sale on e-bay.

They want $100 for it. Seller thinks it's a body serial number plate and from a 1926 Peerless.

The "13K-3561" stamped in the brass tells us it is from one of the grand straight-eight Peerlesses. As a matter of fact, this tells us this motor i.d. plate is from one of only about 653 "Custom" or "Model C" 1930-1932 Peerlesses [13K-3001 to 13K-3653]. The last of the line and most expensive model for the Thirties.

XIV. Also a pair of cowl-light brackets for the unbelievably rare and desirable Model 8-125 Peerlesses. Someone in Helsinki has them for sale until 10/17/12. Minimum bid: $300.

Serial #s: 19163-LH and 19162-RH

Sorry to make such a big deal about this model of Peerless, but someone has to. The cars are so rare it is unlikely anyone reading this has seen one in person. The 1929 Peerless 8-125 was the first model of this marque to have a straight-eight. It is a large, elegantly-designed luxury car with the presence of, say, a Cord L-29. Serial numbers suggest about 1,200 were built. My research comes up with only 3 to 6 in existence. Only one really in circulation. There are 3 photos of an 8-125 in the "AACA Photos" gallery at the top of the page if you do a search for Peerless using the gallery seach function of Advanced Search.

XVI. E-Bay has a 5-Gauge Peerless Instrument Panel for sale until about 11/30/12. To me, it looks like one for a 1929 Model 6-61, possibly also for a 1928 6-60. Instruments not there...but metal backing and surround, glass covering, and Peerless gold eagle are.

XXIV. A set of 6 NOS Pistons and Wrist Pins are for sale on e-bay. Seller is parting out a 1927 Reo Wolverine plus parts & states these pistons shared by 1 Peerless model and a Jordan and a Reo using the Continental 15E and 16 E engines. Currently $65. My thoughts are these go to the 1927-1928 Peerless Six-60 199 Cu. In. engines.
