Frank_W,

    I'm in a truck stop on a break...........but yes, Streetside Classics says it's sold. Do not know who bought it, unfortunately. I know someone in Denmark with a similar Peerless F/S, though! ( a 1929/30 Model 6-61 Sedan )

Thanks Jeff,

I would send this by PM but I don't satisfy club minimum posting rules. 

I have a 1929 Model 6-81 that I am doing a frame up restoration. I'm looking for a parts car as mine is in very rough shape. I will be happy to share more details in future communications. 

Thanks, Frank W

1921, when the Peerless above was built, was when 14 officers of Cadillac Motors took over Peerless. Richard Collins became President, and brought with him a new 289 Cu. In. Six, designed by Cadillac's Experimental Engineering Department, under Richard Emig. For 1923, there was a new rad shell for all Peerlesses*, and the new engine was employed in the Model Six-70 in 1924...ending 8 years of V-8-Only for the automaker. Richard Lichtfeld has written about how Collins brought what's often called a "Collins Six" to Cleveland when GM didn't want it in Cadillacs. The engine had comparable horsepower to the V-8 but allowed a lower sales price. Peerless sales in 1921 was just 1,000 cars(Model 56); and the 6-70 alone sold 2,700 cars, combined with 3,651 Model 66 V-8s sold in 1923-1924, according to my math.

 

* Both the Mod. 66 V-8 and the Mod. 6-70 had Cadillac Lookalike rad shells in 1923 and 1924.

Thanks for your interest in this rarely-discussed carmaker, 1912 Caddy. The Model 56, Series 1 thru 7, was 1916-1922. The 6-70 continued into 1925 for 3 or 4 months and the Peerless 6-72 was built 1925-1927.
