    There is a Bonhams Auction at the Tupelo Auto Museum on the 26/27 of April. Some very interesting cars going up. Sad to see the museum liquidating.

    I would recommend looking at ALL the cars in that museum sale with an expert……….ALL of them. Not sure I would call that car a runabout……..

    Amazing collection of early Harrah’s cars…

    A quiz for the experts out there. What will the 1928 and 1917 auctioned Pierces

    bring? I noticed that Bonhams wouldn’t venture a guess on the 1917.

    I know the 1917 B-4 very well and in fact took several photos of the car when it was being restored back about 1979.The body is new and in fact I suggested several things in its design.If a member is interested in the car,they could contact me through the roster and I can tell them more.

    Yikes! Anyone want to guess the values if the paint colors were not so 70’s? Orange is not my favorite. Karl

    Karl, wrong lot numbers. The 1917 48-B-4, lot 435 went for $84,000. The 1928 Series 81 , lot 433, went for $44,800. These included fees.

    That is a good price for the B-4 given the incorrect body but it is a nice chassis

    and a correct body could be made as I believe castings are available.At the time the car was done new body castings were not available so the car was restored to be enjoyed.

    David, thanks for the correction. I pulled that info from a post on the AACA site. The list did not have spaces, so the price was first, then the car. Those prices realized are a little better for both of them as sitting for a while cars. Karl

    I had been following them to see what the sold for, just out of curiosity. The prices came from the auction company’s website. Dave
