Premier, Indianapolis Indiana

Recommended Posts

I wanted to start this thread to get Premier owners together and help make it possible to find more parts for all years of Premiers. If you don't want to be public with your car, but would like to be part of a private Premier Registry you can send me a private message. My Premier is in the Our Cars & Restorations section under 20Premier, take a look.

To my knowledge Premier made three models in 1909. A touring 7 passenger, Roadster 3 to 4 passenger, and a Limousine. Pretty good sale price for a Premier chassis at the Bonhams auction. I think it says a lot about the quality of Premier cars than this chassis # 1359 went for that amount.

I was looking at ebay today and found an interesting item. Some vendor named pinlady1 incorrectly listed a pair of earings as Peerless; instead they clearly read: "Premier Automobiles -- Indianapolis" with an oakleaf motif on a green background. Will probably be 5 years before another pair of those come up for sale! ( still for sale as of 11/20/14 on ebay under "Peerless" and "Collectibles" )

I'm glad to see Premier has a Forum now.

The February Hemmings had a report from the 2017 Carmel, CA event called Bonhams Quail Lodge Auction. A 1904 Premier Model F tonneau was sold there. There was a picture of the nicely-restored green car, reminding me(because of a similar front end) of a 1905 Franklin I saw at Medicine Lodge in 1970. The Premier has a 4-cylinder ,18 h.p. engine and fetched $341,000.
