Reply To: Starting hand crank for Model 80


The crank handle that Dave White posted a photo of is for either a teens car or a ’20’s series 32, 33, or 36.

A Series 80 crank is several inches shorter, and needs to be shorter to not hit the chassis or the apron covering the frame rails.. The S80 frame is several inches narrower than the bigger cars.

Here is a chromed S80 crank and a shop made one that I made to use until I found an actual Pierce Arrow crank.  The chrome is incorrect, the crank was painted black originally.
